Data Scientist, Senior

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 analytical skills to improve Cybersecurity to federal departments, agencies, and partners by developing new technologies and implementing cutting-edge solutions. You'll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs, and then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You'll develop, identify, and research new ways to interact with data and visualization to provide DHS with advanced situational awareness based on the capabilities deployed. Your ability to use the right combination of algorithms, tools, and frameworks to turn disparate data points into objective answers will help to deploy and sustain the DHS National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS). 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 to support DHS' Cybersecurity engineering and acquisition Center of Excellence.

Empower change with us.
