Cyber Machine Learning Engineer

The Challenge: 

Are you excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set? Are you fascinated by the possibilities presented by reverse malware engineering, network behavior, and artificial intelligence advances? In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of data and complex network topologies open new opportunities. As a Computer Forensics Data Scientist, you can turn data into useful information to solve global challenges. Across private and public sectors — from penetration testing to malware detection — you know the answers are in the data.

We have an opportunity for you to use your research and data science experience to deliver streamlined access to evidence to the defense and intelligence sectors. You’ll work closely with clients and market leads to understand their questions and needs, and then conceptualize data-rich sources into a framework that delivers insights. You’ll write code, dissect published studies, design research projects, and use the right combination of tools and methodologies to turn that set of disparate information and data sources into innovation that supports operatives and task forces.
