Data Scientist SAS Programmer

The Challenge:

Are you excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set? 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 health care industry. 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 mentor teammates, develop algorithms, write scripts, use automation, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help 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. As a technical expert, you’ll identify new opportunities to use data science solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges.  Join us as we use data science for good in the health care industry.

Empower change with us.
