Data Engineer

The Challenge:

Do you want to work at the forefront of advanced technology and solve complex data challenges? You know that data yields pivotal insights when it’s gathered from disparate sources and organized. As a data engineer, you have the chance to develop and deploy the pipelines and platforms that make this data meaningful. What’s more, you’ll have the chance to help grow Booz Allen’s DataOps capabilities while working with a multi-disciplinary team of analysts, data engineers, data scientists, developers, and data consumers in a fast-paced, agile environment. We’re looking for someone like you to work with our clients and meet their mission by keeping the warfighter safe and informing data-driven decisions.

This is an opportunity to implement data engineering activities on some of the most mission-driven projects in the industry. Supporting the Department of Defense, you’ll have the chance to write custom code, build out ETL pipelines, perform data ingestion and build data models. From sharing your skills in analytical exploration and examination of data to supporting the assessment, design, building, and maintenance of scalable platforms, you’ll work with our clients to solve their most pressing challenges.
