Data Scientist

Type: Full-time
Category: Data Scientist
Location: Herndon, VA
Clearance: TS/SCI



As a Data Scientist, you will have the unique opportunity to work on a program developing target models and advancing state-of-the-art modeling and prediction capabilities. This program will develop and train robust machine learning models to classify images and probe those developed models in search of their weaknesses. 


Our delivery teams are driven to explore new ideas and technology, and care deeply about collaboration, feedback, and iteration. We follow SAFe agile practices, embrace the Ops ethos(DataOps/DevSecOps/MLOps) to “automate-first”, use modern tech stacks, and constantly challenge each other to grow and improve.

If cutting edge data science projects resonate with you and you care deeply about joining a mission-driven company with a strong growth direction and diverse culture, we'd love to learn more about you. Check out the details below, and let’s connect.


Technical members of our solutions teams require little guidance, but love to learn, collaborate, and problem solve. This position requires a mid to senior level of experience, a passion for mission support, and a strong desire to solve our customers’ hardest technical and data challenges.

The Data Scientist will be responsible for the following:

  • Develop, train and evaluate Machine Learning models
  • Develop strategies for data augmentation and synthetic data
  • Utilize models to detect and classify targets within imagery
  • Develop methods to identify classifier model vulnerabilities 



  • TS/SCI clearance required
  • 5+ years of related experience
  • Experience with deep learning frameworks such as PyTorch, Tensorflow or MXNet
  • Prior experience with the Intelligence Community and methodological experience in some of the following areas
    • Relationships and discovery (correlating, enriching, and prioritizing target data)
    • Situational awareness (unifying data into a single context, allowing the current situation to be accurately and quickly understood)
    • Systems modeling (building a computational analog of real-world-system to understand how it operates, what it is capable of, and how it can be fooled)
  • Experience with Synthetic Aperture Radar data strongly preferred

We're looking for a motivated Data Scientist eager to advance not only your professional career, but also the missions of our Intelligence and Defense communities. At NT Concepts, you'll be able to:

  • Meaningfully impact the company's growth, and share in the rewards accordingly
