Position description

Critical decisions are made every single day in our government and military. What if you could use your analytical skills to help them make informed decisions? With all the information available today, it takes a skilled analyst to know how to find and interpret the best data to give their clients the right answers. As an Intelligence Analyst, you use your specialized regional and functional experience and your attention to detail to develop intelligence products and analytic assessments to give your client the actionable intelligence and context they need. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to support our warfighters, protect our national security, and inform our nation’s leaders.


As an Intelligence Analyst on our team, you’ll help your client understand the operational landscape. Using your understanding of various collection platforms, you’ll explore new data sources, build effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources, including SIGINT, GEOINT, HUMINT, and open source. You’ll validate information and apply client tradecraft as you build assessments for warfighters, senior policy makers, and the US intelligence community (IC). As the authority on your portfolio, your client will look to you for time critical recommendations, often under pressure. This is a chance to grow your expertise, develop new skills, and share your methodologies with other analysts. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our warfighters and our nation's leaders.
