Cost Data Analyst, Mid

The Opportunity: 

Do you want to use your analysis skills to help the Navy get the most out of their funding?  When it comes to considering the costs of building and maintaining Navy systems, you know there is more to it than parts and labor.

In this role, you’ll provide comprehensive decision analytic support to the Navy acquisition life cycle process by developing detailed and defendable business case and cost models. This includes collaborating with stakeholders and technical subject matter experts to define program requirements, normalize and analyze data, and present baseline and alternative results. From modeling with dynamic and complex formulas in Microsoft Excel, to quantifying cost uncertainty with Monte Carlo discrete event simulation, you'll use your experience in analytics and data visualization to help the Navy in decision-making. This position is a hybrid role with a combination of working at a Booz Allen office or client site and working remotely.

Join us. The world can’t wait. 

You Have:   

  • 5+ years of experience with cost estimating and analysis
  • Experience developing presentations for clients that clearly articulate ground rules and assumptions as well as analysis results
  • Knowledge of core estimating competencies, including Work Breakdown Structures (WBS), escalation and inflation, and risk and uncertainty
  • Ability to develop dynamic, logical, and documented cost models in Microsoft Excel
  • Secret clearance
  • Bachelor's degree in Engineering, Operations Research, Mathematics, or Economics

Nice If You Have:   

  • Experience with DoD acquisition and support of major milestones
  • Experience with Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, Crystal Ball, Python, or R
  • Knowledge of cost-related Contract Data Requirement List (CDRL) products
