Systems Engineer/ Data Scientist (2020-3000-2435)


The Systems Engineer/ Data Scientist shall have practical hands-on, as well as enterprise/policy level experience. This role will initially focus on rebuilding a structured data layer that has been migrated from another system, in particular creating a data architecture compatible with a parallel existing PostGreSQL structured data layer that can drive a suite of existing tools created in Rand Tableau. The initial work will also include establishing and implementing ETL protocols for a variety of structured economic datasets and moving the data within the AWS ecosystem and across classification borders in cooperation with other stakeholders across the community of interest. Once this initial work is completed, the assignments  will focus on data science support to analysts, including applying established or developing new programmatic and quantitative methods to  find patterns  and relationships in large data sets; conducting mathematical, statistical, geospatial modeling, or other data­ driven problem-solving analysis to address business operations questions; identifying and collaborating with collectors and analysts to determine the data needed to address problems; enhancing existing data exploration tools and visualizations and creating new ones in response to fast-changing requirements, and incorporating insights and findings into a broad range of products. These products can range from those that provide direct mission support to those that provide capabilities to peers and colleagues.
