Computer Scientist, Senior

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 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 leadership and analytical skills to 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. Additionally, you will work as part of a diverse contract team performing in-depth technical analysis of foreign conventional and irregular warfare threats to US ground force systems, combat support systems, and US operations. As a computer scientist you will be the tech authority and advisor on issues involving software engineering, big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), and other applicable areas. Other duties include investigations and delineation of software engineering criteria to present complex analysis verbally and in writing. As operational enablers, analysts integrate data analytics (DA) into all-source production working alongside industry-leading data scientists to directly support the client’s production, plans, and operations. Analytical duties include developing and supporting force-on-force ground scenarios, identifying significant intelligence trends within a range of activities, and delivering strategic and anticipatory finished assessments.

Empower change with us.
