Data Scientist

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 the IoT, machine learning, and artificial intelligence advances? In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open up new opportunities. As a data scientist, you can turn these complex data sets into useful information to solve global challenges. Across private and public sectors — from fraud detection to cancer research, to national intelligence, you know the answers are in the data.

We have an opportunity for you to use your leadership and analytical skills to improve national security missions. You'll work closely with your customers to understand their questions and needs, then dig into their data rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You'll explore data from various sources, discover patterns and previously hidden insights to address business problems, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help senior leadership make informed decisions. You'll provide your customers with a deep understanding of their data, what it all means, and how they can use it. Join us as we use data science for good in national security.
