Financial Intelligence Data Scientist
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 and analytical skills to support the US Department of Treasury. You'll work closely with your customer to understand their financial intelligence needs, then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You'll write scripts to integrate and parse data, conduct exploratory data analysis to discover hidden trends, apply statistical tests to validate hypotheses, and use the right combination of tools to turn disparate data points into objective answers to help senior managers 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 to support national security and safeguard the financial system.

Empower change with us.
