Job Description

Job Description Summary

The problem facing the intelligence community (IC) and DoD is no longer how to get more data – it’s understanding how to turn the data they have into answers. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem solving mindset, you’ll have an opportunity to use those skills to directly support our warfighters. With critical thinking and flexibility, you’ll work closely with end users across the DoD, intelligence community (IC), and development teams to create innovative applications that address an unconventional warfare client’s highly technical and complex problems using the latest tools, technologies, and frameworks to enable intelligence analysts to better sift through the plethora of raw data and turn them into valuable intelligence. If you enjoy working in a fast-paced, constantly changing environment, DTRA is the DoD’s enduring quick-reaction capability for rapid capability development and delivery to proactively adapt to emergent improvised threats. If you love being hands on and in the weeds, the team operates as a very flat organization, working collaboratively across the whole organization to pioneer the way forward in the realities of today’s battlefield.
