Technical Targeting Analyst

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day in our government. 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 technical targeting analyst, you use your specialized SIGINT and all-source experience and your attention to detail to develop reports and assessments 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 protect our national security and support policymakers.

As a technical targeting analyst on our team, you’ll help your client understand the operational environment and anticipate threats. Using your comprehensive understanding of various collection platforms, you’ll explore new data sources, build effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources primarily using SIGINT, ELINT, FISINT, MASINT, and GEOINT. You may integrate additional all-source intelligence, including HUMINT and Financial Intelligence. You’ll validate information and develop tradecraft as you build assessments for experts and policymakers. As the authority on your targets, 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 data science, data modeling, and scripting. 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 nation's leader
