Mission Manager, Senior

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day in support of our nation's defense. What if you could use your analytical skills and operational mindset to help protect our nation? With all the information available today, it takes a skilled analyst to find and interpret the best data to provide their clients with the best answers. As a mission manager, you can use your technical, operational, and military experience to develop actionable intelligence for our client. If you have a strong operational background, analytical skills, and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity for you to use those skills to support our national security.

As a mission manager on our team, you'll play a critical role in helping our client understand their operational battlespace and the national level threats in that space. You'll gain an understanding of a multitude of different collection platforms and tools as you explore new data sources and combine information from disparate sources, including SIGINT, GEOINT, OSINT, and open source. You'll validate the information and apply client tradecraft as you help build assessments on strategic level targets within your assigned area of responsibility (AOR). You'll become the authority on your target set, AOR, and operational tools, so our client will look to you for time-critical recommendations, often under pressure. This is a chance to define your expertise, develop new skills on incorporating raw, often time-sensitive intelligence paired with a multitude of platforms and tools enabling you to affect the targeting narrative and picture. You'll drive complex worldwide operations to develop actionable intelligence against the highest priorities. You'll work with a team where you will share your skills, expertise, and hunger for solutions with other analysts. You'll have direct leadership opportunities for leading mission partners in a 24/7/365 operations environment. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers and use multiple resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our national interests.
