Watch Analyst

The Challenge:

Do you find yourself constantly looking for more and better information? Do you want a job where you can use your knowledge and research skills to improve national security? Never has the role of a Watch Analyst been so meaningful. More connected devices, larger storage capacity, and faster connections has resulted in an explosion of available information. The problem facing the intelligence community (IC) is no longer how to get more data – it’s understanding how to turn the data they have into answers. That’s where you come in. With critical thinking and flexibility, you quickly seek out accurate data sources, sift through the raw data, and turn it into valuable intelligence. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to support our warfighters, protect our national security, and inform our nation's leaders.  

As a Watch Analyst on our team, you’ll collect, analyze, and report on regional political and military updates in a key region to support a Combatant Command. You’ll analyze all sources of intelligence and information, including INTs, open source, and other government data on a specific topic or problem set. You’ll apply expertise in operations, intelligence, qualitative and quantitative analyses, and collections to enhance the client mission. You’ll produce written analysis and briefings pertaining to the client region, including political and military events, to inform senior policymakers. You’ll develop and maintain working relationships with key leaders and client unit staff. This position requires the ability to support 24/7 Watch operations.
