The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day to support our national security. What if you could use your technical and analytic skills to help enable informed decisions by our government and military leaders? With all the information available today, it takes a skilled data scientist to know how to integrate and drive technology solutions that directly impact mission operations. As a data scientist, you'll use your specialized experience in intelligence collection and analysis, modeling and automation, and advanced analytics to give your client the actionable intelligence and context they need.

As a data scientist on our team, you'll help your client understand opportunities for technical innovation by designing and developing technology solutions that enable real-world mission outcomes.
