Job Description

LexisNexis Special Services Inc is a leading provider of Pattern Analysis, delivering quantitatively-derived patterns of insurgent, terrorist, criminal, and other predatory behaviors impacting U.S. Forces and their allies, U.S. National Security, and Federal and Local Law Enforcement. Pattern analysis is a multi-disciplinary adaptation of law enforcement crime series analysis that is coupled with intelligence reporting for counter-terrorism and counter-threat problem sets. Pattern Analysts apply concepts of spatial, temporal and predatory behavioral analysis to identify repeated patterns of criminal and nefarious activity, develop precise predictions of future activity, and translate highly technical findings into actionable operations to counter the threats, increase force protection, and dismantle nefarious and terrorist networks. Pattern Analysts serve on a collaborative, multi-disciplinary team providing incisive, mathematically-defined, and empirically-measured decision support to operational units and executive leadership.


Perform advanced and innovative strategic, operational, tactical and administrative analysis relating to behavioral, spatial and temporal patterns of human decisions to predict specific predatory activity and to develop dynamic and complex analytical solutions to critical and hazardous problem sets faced by front-line operational personnel.

Employ a broad range of statistical, mathematic, geospatial, and behavioral techniques, tools and perspectives to derive precise and accurate predictive analysis, translating highly-technical findings into coherent and directly-actionable messages to a broad spectrum of stakeholders, including multidisciplinary operations/intelligence teams in defense, national security, and federal law enforcement. LNSSI provides advanced technical training on pattern analysis methodologies.

Operate, manipulate, and manage large-scale data science efforts supporting the development of comprehensive data holdings and tools for the purposes of behavioral modeling, pattern identification and predictive analysis. DATA SCIENCE


Identify, develop, test and deploy best-in-class algorithms, API's, tools, and user interfaces and quickly troubleshoot and evaluate alternatives. Participate in knowledge sharing sessions and community of interest groups to stay abreast of best practices and industry standards related to machine learning, data science, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and software development.

Contribute to team development and delivery of high-quality and innovative analytic tools and scalable machine learning-based solutions with immediate applicability and deployment in both testing and tactical-edge environments in support of immediate and changing requirements for real-world solutions.

Participate in and lead briefings and model reviews with key stakeholders, including translating complex methodologies and results for stakeholders with limited technical backgrounds.

Successful applicants will have documented experience working with multidisciplinary operations, analytic, or intelligence teams in law enforcement, the military, or the government.
