Operations Research Analyst, Junior<br /><b><b>The Challenge:</b></b><br /><br />Are you excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set? Are you fascinated by the possibilities presented by machine learning, and artificial intelligence advances? In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open up new opportunities. As a data scientist, you can turn these complex data sets into useful information to solve global challenges. <br /><br />Conduct logical analyses of management problems and management information requirements and formulate mathematical models of problems for solution by computer. Prepare mathematical models of problem areas in one or several equations that relate constants and variables, restrictions, alternatives, conflicting objectives, and their numerical parameters. Gather, relate, and identify data with variables in models by applying personal judgment and mathematical tests. Review operations and testing of models to ensure adequacy, or determine needs for reformulation. Prepare written, nontechnical reports for management, indicating solution or range of possible alternatives in rank of desirability and probability of success. Perform work that is varied and that may be somewhat difficult in character, but usually involves limited responsibility under supervision.<br /><br />We have an opportunity for you to use your leadership and analytical skills to improve the public and private sectors. You'll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs, then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You'll become part of a team, develop algorithms, write scripts, build predictive analytics, use automation, apply machine learning, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help senior 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.
