Data Scientist, Lead
As a data scientist, you’re excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set, and you’re fascinated by the possibilities presented by IoT, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open new opportunities. As a data scientist at Booz Allen, 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—we need a seasoned data scientist like you to help find the answers in the data.
On our team, you’ll use your leadership and analytical skills to improve Veteran access to healthcare. 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, work with customers to gain a deep appreciation for their data and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help national 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. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to use data science solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges.
Work with us as we use data science for good to ensure Veterans receive the healthcare they deserve.
