-        Support multiple simultaneous projects and take open-ended or high-level guidance, independently and collaboratively make discoveries that are mission-relevant, and package and deliver the findings to a non-technical audience.
-        Have a mix of intellectual curiosity, quantitative acumen, and customer-focus to identify novel sources of data across a range of fields, to improve the performance of machine learning algorithms, and to encourage user adoption of high-end data analytics platforms in partnership with a highly qualified, highly motivated team.

-        Significant experience dealing with open source, publicly available information (PAI) data sources and types
