Computer Scientist

Key Role

Work as a Computer Scientist applying in-depth knowledge of computer theory, algorithms, data structures, programming concepts and languages to support an intelligence client's foreign ground force reporting responsibility. Work as part of a diverse contract team performing in-depth technical analysis of foreign conventional and irregular warfare threats to U.S. ground force systems, combat support systems, and U.S. operations. Advise on issues involving software engineering, big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), and other applicable areas. Investigate and delineate software engineering criteria to present complex analysis verbally and in writing. Integrate data analytics (DA) into all-source production working alongside industry-leading data scientists to directly support the client’s production, plans, and operations. Analyze and support force-on-force ground scenarios, identify significant intelligence trends within a range of activities, and deliver strategic and anticipatory finished assessments.

Basic Qualifications:

  • 10+ years of experience as a Computer Scientist on U.S. Army or DoD programs and projects

  • Knowledge of scientific and technical research and their applications

  • Ability to employ scientific techniques, including mathematics, statics, information science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, network science, probability modeling, data mining, data engineering, data warehousing, data compression, and data protection, to correlate complex, technical findings into graphical written, visual and verbal narrative products on trends of existing intelligence data to leverage other IC data sources

  • Ability to develop and utilize machine learning and data mining algorithms, including Multiple Information Model Synthesis Architecture (MIMOSA) prediction algorithms based on open source capabilities and define comprehensive, new, or unique research approaches that enable rigorous assessments to address and contribute to high-level tasks

  • Ability to integrate or code algorithms to support intelligence search and discovery missions

  • Ability to employ data science techniques to support predictive analysis, social media and crowdsourced data analytics, wargaming, and strategy development

  • Ability to employ exploratory analysis and rapid iteration techniques of large volumes of data to quickly derive intelligence, and review analytic products for cogent arguments, tradecraft standards, and adequate support for conclusions

  • Ability to provide in-depth scientific and technical analysis to provide support analytic operations and knowledge management issues across organizational and intra-IC boundaries

  • TS/SCI clearance

  • Master's degree

Additional Qualifications:

  • Experience with the application of quantitative and qualitative analytic methods

  • Knowledge of NGIC, Army, and interagency operations
