Arabic Linguist

The Challenge:

Do you find yourself constantly looking for more and better information? Do you want a job where you can use your knowledge and research skills to improve national security? Never has the role of an Arabic linguist been so meaningful. More connected devices, larger storage capacity, and faster connections has resulted in an explosion of available information. The problem facing the intelligence community is no longer how to get more data it's understanding how to turn the data they have into answers. That's where you come in. With critical thinking and flexibility, you quickly seek out the accurate data sources, sift through the raw data, and turn it into valuable intelligence. If you have excellent analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to support our warfighters, protect our national security, and inform our nation's leaders.

As an Arabic linguist on our team, you'll explore new data sources, create effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources to help your client understand their operational landscape. You'll learn how to validate information and apply client tradecraft as you help build assessments for warfighters and senior policy makers. This is a chance to grow your expertise, develop new skills in advanced language-based analysis, and share your language, cultural, and regional expertise with other analysts. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you'll have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our defense community.

Empower change with us.
