Booz Allen Hamilton

Job Overview

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 improve key Intelligence Community support elements. 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, develop strategies using mathematical, statistical, or other data driven problem solving analysis to address business operations or questions, determine what data is relevant to address complex systems and programmatic challenges, build and exploit databases and files, design and develop tactical and strategic analytic products including graphic depictions, articles, reports summarizing the methods and results of the data analysis, advise customers on the method and data needed and available to evaluate a problem, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help the client’s senior leadership 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 for good in the Intelligence Community.
