We continue to provide innovative solutions with our multidisciplinary teams formed with exceptional employees. Infoscitex is seeking a Data Scientist to join our team. As this Data Scientist, you will use established programmatic and quantitative methods to find patterns and relationships in large data sets.  In this role, you could expect to conduct mathematical, statistical or other data-driven problem solving analysis to identify operations or intelligence questions by internal and external customers.  Please note this is a very math intensive opportunity; if you are extremely comfortable discussing and applying mathematical principles learned in undergraduate Calculus 1-3; including Differential Equations,  Linear Algebra, and Statistics; then you may thrive in this role.

Requirements:

Due to the sensitivity of customer related requirements, U.S. Citizenship is required.

MS degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science; and at least 1 year of related experience researching and providing data science solutions in the areas of data understanding and insight, big data and cloud computing. (We have multiple levels associated with this opportunity. Candidates with advanced degrees or varying experience may be considered for alternative classification.)

Applicants selected will be subject to a U.S. Government background investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information: Active Top Secret with SSBI U.S. DoD security clearance is required with SCI eligibility.  An existing active TS/SCI is highly desirable, and may be used as a discriminator.

Proficiency in a complied programming language: C/C++, Fortran, etc.

Experience using Python, R, Java, or other computer languages to perform data science, develop automated solutions to process, and transform data.

Experience with applying machine-learning techniques on a variety of different data types (e.g. images, text, time series, etc.).

Strong skills in MS Office suite.

Ability to work in a highly collaborative team environment.

Excellent verbal and written English communication skills with ability to prepare and deliver clear presentations on research and development plans, project status, technical issues, and results.

Demonstrated ability and react effectively to time critical situations to achieve project success.

Ability to travel (6-8 short travel trips per year are anticipated)

We feel an ideal candidate would also bring experience working with DOD ISR data sets, although this is not a firm requirement for consideration.
