Regular Full-Time


Serve as an advisor to a Government-lead team that:

  • Enables coordination across traditional & non-traditional collectors (commercial, unclassified sensing, mission partners).
  • Enables rapid evolution of advanced analytic algorithms, tools and tradecraft through concept development, prototypes, exercises and operational demonstrations.
  • Evolves a service centric model that enables discoverable services, and data that can be flexibly delivered to mobile platforms at all classification levels.
  • Evolves IT strategies, concepts, standards, architectures and engineering roadmaps that reduce risk, inform policy and steer acquisition to help meet NGA’s long terms goal for the integrated intelligence environment.
  • Enables strategy alignment and draw on national-level experts to perform independent technical and program assessments in support of strategic objectives and major acquisition milestones.
  • Provides acquisition strategy program management services to senior management. Maintains the enterprise architecture baseline and plans the approach to achieving new future architectures. 


  • Influence the GEOINT strategy by enabling the coordination across traditional and nontraditional collectors, including commercial and unclassified sensing, and coordinating activities in a layered architecture approach across mission partners. • Recommend approaches to advance analytic algorithms, tools, and tradecraft via concept development, prototypes, pilots and operational demonstrations.
  • Guide the engineering path to the future NGA architecture.
  • Define novel approaches to advancing an IT service-centric model that enables discoverable content, services and easy data delivery across multiple classification domains.
  • Leverage unique knowledge, innovation and trusted Intelligence Community relationships to advise about technical strategies, architectures and future directions.
  • Advise about new prototype and pathfinder approaches. • Guide transition methods to emergent capabilities.
  • Define approaches to improve IT efficiency, effectiveness and resilience in supporting the GEOINT mission.
  • Recommend enhancements to NGA’s analytic tradecraft in integrating new sources of information and exquisite capabilities into its operational environment.
  • Recommend novel collection strategies that fully leverages available sources to enable persistence and advance processing and analytic capabilities for NGA.
