Job description

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 leadership, data, and analytical skills to improve federal client’s personnel, manpower, and processes and systems. You’ll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs, then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll lead and mentor teammates, develop algorithms, apply machine learning, build predictive analytics, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help senior leadership at clients 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. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to use data science solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. This position is a hybrid role with a combination of working at a Booz Allen office or client site, and working remotely.

Join us as we use data science for good to transform how the clients manage their people.

  • 3+ years of experience with applied data science, data engineering, software engineering, or ETL developer

  • Experience with working in client facing teams for data solutioning support

Nice If You Have:

  • Experience with designing and implementing machine learning, data mining, statistics, or graph algorithms in an academic or professional environment

  • Ability to develop statistical tests to make data driven recommendations and decisions

  • Ability to develop and train artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms

  • Master’s degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, Statistics, or Operations Research preferred; Doctorate degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, Statistics, or Operations Research a plus

Clearance:
