Company Description

At RED GATE we do everything we can to serve our clients:
Using the right technical skills, unique methodologies, best practices, and integrated technology, we help clients implement bold solutions. New approaches to emerging and evolving threats. Non-traditional ways to overcome entrenched obstacles. Advantage through opportunity. If you have a serious challenge or problem, we can help you solve it.  The below job description provides details on how this role will help to serve our clients.

Job Description

The problem facing the intelligence community (IC) and DoD is no longer how to get more data – it’s understanding how to turn the data they have into answers. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, you’ll have an opportunity to use those skills to directly support our warfighters. With critical thinking and flexibility, you’ll work closely with end users across the DoD, intelligence community (IC), and development teams to create innovative applications that address an unconventional warfare client’s highly technical and complex problems using the latest tools, technologies, and frameworks to enable intelligence analysts to better sift through the plethora of raw data and turn them into valuable intelligence. If you enjoy working in a fast-paced, constantly changing environment, DTRA is the DoD’s enduring quick-reaction capability for rapid capability development and delivery to proactively adapt to emergent improvised threats. If you love being hands on and, in the weeds, the team operates as a very flat organization, working collaboratively across the whole organization to pioneer the way forward in the realities of today’s battlefield.
