MITRE Corporation – Hiring DSA students

At MITRE, we solve problems for a safer world. Through our federally funded R&D centers and public-private partnerships, we work across government to tackle challenges to the safety, stability, and well-being of our nation.

MITRE Corporation – Data Science Opportunities!

On-campus today, February 13, 2019, we had an Engineering Career fair. The MITRE Corporation ( is one of the companies represented who had multiple data science positions available.   Several of our DSA students met with MITRE and they were highly impressed by the resumes.

An employee stopped by afterward letting me know that they are REALLY interested in MORE of our students.  They want to start contacting and hiring ASAP.

The jobs start this Summer, and they have locations all over the place (D.C., Colorado, etc.).  If you are one of my current or former students and are interested in the job (and, importantly, meet the US security clearance criteria, i.e., must be a US citizen), please send me your contact information and resume so I can connect you with the MITRE rep.
