Geospatial Intelligence Source Strategies Analyst

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day to support our National Security. What if you could use your analytical skills to help your client 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 GEOINT Source Strategies Analyst, you use your specialized technical, regional, and functional experience and your attention to detail to develop Geospatial Information Needs that 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 support our warfighters, protect our national security, and inform our client and national leadership.

As a GEOINT Source Strategies Analyst on our team, you’ll help your client understand and implement the most efficient strategies to acquire the data they require. Using your understanding of various collection platform capabilities and applications, you will help your client develop effective collection strategies that combine information from disparate sources, including SIGINT, ELINT, MASINT, open-source, etc. to enable automated tipping and queuing models. You’ll validate the information and apply collection analysis tradecraft as you work to refine further collection strategies against existing and emerging problem sets for targeteers, warfighters, senior policymakers, internal clients, and US IC-wide stakeholders. As the authority in your tradecraft, your client will look to you for time-critical recommendations, often under pressure. This is a chance to grow your expertise, develop new skills in Automated Tipping and Queueing software modeling tools, and share your methodologies with other analysts. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have 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 clients, warfighters, national leaders, and policymakers.
