Job Description

Primary Role:

As a Data Scientist, you can turn 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 skills to deliver critical data insights to the warfighter to support countering threat networks. You’ll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs and then build capabilities to unlock answers from a data-rich environment to help put together the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll construct robust data pipelines through the development and application of supervised and unsupervised machine learning approaches, help develop neural networks, identify and apply the latest industry-leading approaches to tough data challenges, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help DoD elements at the tactical edge 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 for good in countering threat networks.

Empower change with us.
