The Challenge: 

People say that a picture says a thousand words. If you are that person and you understand how powerful it is to provide a concept using a graph or visualization, then look no further. We have an opportunity for you to use your leadership and analytical skills to improve a client's data science capability. This exciting opportunity will challenge you and your support our clients and their missions. You will serve as data science and data visualization expert for our clients, and a leader for your team. Your role will require you to address a myriad of problems where strong data processing and visualization skills are needed. In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open new opportunities. As a data scientist, you can turn these complex data sets into useful information to solve global challenges. You’ll work closely with your client 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 and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help leadership 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.
