The United States Postal Service Office of Inspector General (USPS OIG) is seeking a highly qualified applicant to fill one of three Data Scientist positions in the Countermeasures and Performance Evaluation (CAPE) team located in Arlington, VA. CAPEs Analytics Lab consists of a creative test and learn environment where domain questions, business problems, and analytic techniques and tools can be explored to deliver and deploy data-driven, analytic solutions to end-users within the USPS OIG and Postal Service. Although we have successfully deployed several risk assessment models that support our investigative and audit efforts, CAPE is in motion to expand our analytics capabilities by offering Data Scientists an opportunity to apply their knowledge to support the mission of a public sector agency. The candidate will provide technical expertise and the capability to develop data analysis, data visualizations, analytical models, and outputs.
