Human Resources Data Scientist
Are you excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set? 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 and analytical skills to support enterprise-wide, data-driven strategic workforce planning for a large DoD organization by leveraging a data science approach to Human Resources (HR) data. 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 mentor teammates and develop sophisticated data models and insightful data visualizations that enable senior leaders to manage a specialized, highly-educated, and diverse workforce across multiple programs and locations. You'll support a multi-disciplinary HR team to gain more actionable workforce insights from existing HR data and explore or develop areas for future research. You'll create efficiencies in the collection, storage, analysis, and reporting of HR data. 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.
