Job Description:

We are hiring three junior data scientists to catapult ICF’s Aviation Consulting into new ways to create insight and solve client problems.

ICF Aviation encompasses 80 professionals around the world who help airlines, airports manufacturers and investors solve the most complex problems in commercial aviation today. We have guided the winning bidders to size their investments in London’s airports; modeled multi-billion-dollar cash flows to support aircraft financing; and helped global airlines get their aircraft off the ground more quickly. We are storytellers, economists and engineers fishing purposefully in a rich sea of data.

As a junior data scientist, you will join a group of analysts and associates in one of our practice areas — Airports, Aircraft or Aerospace & Maintenance — where you will participate in analytical project work on behalf of our clients. This may include developing models using technologies such as Excel, Alteryx or SQL, preparing charts or drafting reports and presentations.

At the same time, you will hold the special responsibility to help us apply the latest data science techniques to streamline and automate processes and take our work to a new level of intelligence. For example, you may automate parts of our analysis by integrating external data sources using an API or Web Service, applying machine learning algorithms to large datasets, and developing new data visualizations in Dash, RShiny, Tableau, or Power BI. For these problems, you will be the lead hacker, but will have support from other associates and ICF’s Analytics Studio.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Gather, analyze, and interpret large data volumes in support of assessments and presenting results in a cohesive manner through written reports and presentations
  • Interface with clients to gather data and present results of studies and analyses
  • Conceive, design and build scalable analytics solutions, using data wrangling, analysis and visualization
  • Develop predictive analytics, using machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence
  • Develop prototypes and educate teammates on what’s possible while remaining humble and learning

Basic Qualifications:  

  • Bachelor’s degree in economics, finance, engineering, data science or related field
  • Quantitative and qualitative problem-solving skills, including ability to conceive and develop analytical models using statistical methods/approaches
  • Experience developing data pipelines, transforming data, structuring data, extracting data from various databases, and developing algorithms with tools and languages like Python or R
  • Ability to synthesize findings, ask the next question and communicate insights in plain English
  • Hacker grit — willingness to figure it out, try it out and try again

Preferred Skills/Experience:  

  • Experience with data visualization tools, such as RShiny, Dash, Tableau, or Power BI
  • Knowledge of industry leading analytics and big data technologies, approaches, and tools
  • Familiarity with Big Data environments (Hadoop, Teradata, Spark)
  • Interest in aviation and aerospace industry a plus
  • Spanish, Portuguese or Arabic a plus

We think you’d be a great fit if you:

  • Have participated in hackathons or Kaggle competitions
  • Read articles from sources like Mashable, Gizmodo, or The Verge
  • Love solving problems by exploring messy and unstructured data sets

Professional Skills: 

  • Ability to work collaboratively within multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary teams spread across different countries and time zones
  • Ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment
  • Ability to adapt to diverse team environment while also being a strong independent contributor
  • ICF offers an excellent benefits package, an award winning talent development program, and fosters a highly skilled, energized and empowered workforce.
