Noblis is seeking a Senior Data Scientist to join our team of professionals.
The Joint Polar Satellite Systems (JPSS) Program (www.jpss.noaa.gov) is a NOAA project (under the National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service [NESDIS]) developing a weather satellite observing system, consisting of three spacecraft, and a ground system capable of managing those spacecrafts. The ground system includes antenna stations, network and telecom, telemetry and commanding, as well as data processing and distribution. The ground system developed under the JPSS program is utilized by the NESDIS Office of Satellite Products and Operations (OSPO) to operationally manage the JPSS spacecraft and the generation and distribution of products.
The Noblis task with JPSS is to provide analysis of the ground segment, as implemented by the program's prime contractor, and assist with developing improvements that either 1) reduce lifecycle cost, 2) enhance usability for the operations team, or 3) increase reliability and sustainability of the ground system.
Noblis is looking for a Data Scientist who will work collaboratively with the Noblis team to design and implement offline and near real-time analytics capabilities. The capabilities will include visualization of statistics for use in knowledge management portal and dashboards.
These capability tools will be used by stakeholders in an operations environment monitoring satellite ground systems. The purpose of the capabilities will be to provide the client an analysis of satellite operation data and to foster knowledge capture and management.
In addition, the Data Scientist will assist the Noblis JPSS Program team in the identification, documentation and analysis of requirements for the performance and value of Noblis developed tools.
The Data Scientist will primarily do the following:
o Support the design and implementation of data integration across data analytics infrastructures.
o Identification of analytics approaches, and development of supporting analytical datasets.
o Conduct data exploration and identify approaches for model development, feature definition, and application of machine learning.
o Conduct independent analysis to identify new insights into user behavior and anomalies.
o Development of dashboards and reports to assess data performance and quality control.
o Assist with the development of project status briefings and dashboards for clients.
o Interact with client project team members and operational staff.
The candidate will be embedded with the OSPO operations staff onsite at the NOAA Satellite Operations Facility (NSOF) in Suitland, MD, as well as at the JPSS GreenTec facility in Greenbelt, MD. The candidate will have access to both JPSS Program government staff and other JPSS prime and support contractor staff to conduct research, interviews and technical interchange meetings to gather needed information for analysis.
