Deployed Geospatial Analyst
Deployed Geospatial Analyst
You're an expert in analyzing geospatial and imagery data, but you don't want to sit behind the same desk all day - you want to interact directly with the warfighters in-country. We're looking for you—a Geospatial Analyst who can provide geospatial and imagery analysis on a rotating deployment schedule. On a 4 to 6-month rotation, you'll operate from Springfield, Virginia, then deploy to an OCONUS location. You will have the opportunity to provide support in-theater, to work with and understand the needs of your end customers. Using tools like ArcGIS, QT Modeler, and SocetGXP, you will take data from multiple sources to provide geospatial and imagery intelligence solutions including density graphics, heat maps, and terrain analyses.
You will also have opportunities to expand your skills with technical training to build your own tool kit and learn new technologies like full motion video (FMV), Python Scripting, and JEMA Modeling. Whether deploying individually, or as a team, your direct support to in-theater operations will provide you with the continuous insight and feedback from the warfighters who depend on your products and analysis.
Deployment incentives apply.
You'll have the opportunity to connect in Communities of Excellence with others doing similar work, because we know that creativity is contagious, and when you don't have to recreate the wheel, you can focus on new challenges. Benefit from our Digital University, an online learning portal where you can access more than 5000 tech courses, certifications and books. Be empowered by our latest tools and technology, or take advantage of our tuition assistance. Take your creative ideas to the next level by applying to our Tech Innovators Program, which offers funding and time to explore your own interests.
