AI Practitioner, Lead

The Challenge:

Are you excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set? Are you fascinated by the possibilities presented by the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, and artificial intelligence advances? In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open up new opportunities. As a data scientist, you can turn these complex data sets into useful information to solve global challenges. Across private and public sectors — from fraud detection, to cancer research, to national intelligence — you know the answers are in the data.

We have an opportunity for you to use your analytical skills to improve the intelligence community (IC). You’ll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs, then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll focus on using machine learning to analyze massive data sets, leveraging modern DL frameworks including TensorFlow, Keras, and Torch to develop computer vision and Natural Language Processing (NLP) models. You’ll use statistical methods and leverage knowledge of large data sets to characterize uncertainty through statistical methods and develop an enterprise analytics platform working with a cross-functional team of data scientists, software engineers, and testers. Join us as we use data science for good to support operations. 

Empower change with us.

You Have:

-7+ years of experience with developing software in high-level languages, including Java, C, or C++
