As a Data Scientist, you’re excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set, and you enjoy digging into new datasets and thinking through the insights they can offer, as well as how to clean and prepare them for analysis. In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open new opportunities. As a Data Scientist at Booz Allen, you can help 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 you to help find the answers in the data.
On our team, you’ll use your analytical skills and data science knowledge to create real-world impact. You’ll work closely with your clients to understand their questions and needs, and then dig into their data-rich environments to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll develop algorithms and systems and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn sets of disparate data points into objective answers to help clients make informed decisions about the decision-making processes of leaders and organizations. Ultimately, you’ll provide a deep understanding of the data, what it all means, and how it can be used. This position is a hybrid role with a combination of working at a Booz Allen office or client site and working remotely.
