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 analytical skills to improve the fundamental way the DoD builds and deploys within a large DoD client while supporting broader firm growth initiatives. You’ll work closely with your customers to understand their questions and needs, and then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle, including using expertise in technical and analytical work to explore technical, operational, and business data from multiple disparate sources with the goal of discovering patterns and previously hidden insights. You'll use the latest technologies to design and implement analysis infrastructure and tools, analytic workflow processes, and complex data visualizations. You will leverage understanding of mathematical and statistical concepts as well as expertise in computer science and DoD communications systems to bridge the gap between technologists, mission specialists, business analysts, and suppliers to help your customers 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. Join us as we use data science to achieve new and remarkable solutions for our clients. 

Empower change with us.
