Social Network Analyst

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day in the military. What if you could use your analytical skills to help them make informed decisions? With all the information available today, it takes a skilled analyst to know how to find and interpret the best data to give their clients the right answers. As a Social Network Analyst, you use your specialized functional, language, and technical experience in research and analysis and your attention to detail to develop products derived from social media, publicly available information, and intelligence reporting to give your client the actionable intelligence and context they need. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to support our warfighters.

As a Social Network Analyst on our team, you’ll help your client understand the information environment to disrupt and degrade adversary social media operations. Using your comprehensive understanding of various collection platforms, you’ll explore new data sources, build effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources, including social media, publicly available information, and intelligence reporting. You’ll validate the information and develop tradecraft as you develop support products for warfighters. As the authority on social network analysis, your client will look to you for time-critical recommendations, often under pressure. This is a chance to grow your expertise and broaden your skillset into areas like information operations and data science. You’ll share your expertise with other analysts through leadership and mentoring. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have resources to learn new skills and tools. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our warfighters.
