Data Scientist, Mid

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 analytical skills to improve the DoD's countering weapons of mass destruction (CWMD) mission. You’ll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs, and then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll query, manage, and tame large WMD related data sets and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help WMD analysts and planners make informed decisions. You’ll provide your customer with a deep understanding of their data, what it all means, and how they can use it. You’ll preform data management tasks, including modeling, acquisition pulling, scraping, query strategy, munging, model fitting, and iterative characterization and querying to support analyst need, storage, indexing, and delivery. You’ll perform interesting work across a wide range of technical scopes, including rapid prototyping for seed capability proof of concept, visualization idealization and development, exploratory analysis, dataset shaping for mission problems, methodology development and testing, and system conception, design, build, and deployment. Join us as we use data science for good in the DoD.
