Full Job Description
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 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.
