Data Scientist, PAS

Job description

Who We Are:
For more than 25 years, Aptima's mission has been to improve and optimize performance in mission-critical, technology-intensive environments. We apply deep expertise in how humans think, learn, and perform to today's challenges. Whether for fighter pilots functioning in the cockpit, medical staff in the ICU, or teams collaborating across distributed networks, our solutions:
    • Ensure synergy: between humans, the technologies they use, and the organizations within which they operate
    • Enhance productivity: through human-AI teaming, unobtrusive measurement, data analytics, and intelligent interfaces
    • Accelerate learning, training, and readiness: with precision learning that is customized, personalized, and efficient

What Makes Us Unique:
Our culture is rooted on three principles that our founders planted, and our employees have embraced ever since— innovation, impact, and empathy:. At our core, Aptima researches, develops, and innovates within an area that engineering firms largely ignore, the Human component. In order to impact the world in meaningful ways, you must bring those innovations to light, and that is precisely what we do.

Entrepreneurial and creative energy run through our veins. When our team chooses to continue their education or professionally publish their work, we cheer then on. Teamwork, collaboration, and a relentless focus on our customers are central tenants of our culture. Work hard. Take care of each other. Lead by example. Accept others for who they are.

So, while the world knows us as a company that is moving humans, technology, and AI forward, we believe we are something more.
