Data Scientist, Mid
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 apply your analytical skills to support a government client. You'll work closely with your client to understand their questions and needs, then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You'll conduct complex qualitative and quantitative fusion across diverse data sets over space and time to create innovations and efficiencies in identifying threats to national security and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help the client make informed decisions. You'll provide your client 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 the CWMD mission.

Empower change with us.
