Remote / Telecommute
Remote work is frequently a way to describe working from a home office or being a telecommuter. Depending on the job and company, remote work offers the ability to work from anywhere in the world. To do a remote job, professionals need access to tools like phone/internet service and a quiet place to work without distraction.

The overall role will support strategic cyber risk analysis discussions through repeatable, data driven, quantitative methods using all available data sources.  We need candidates who can identify data gaps and help drive data strategy within GIS Data Services.


This role will involve working directly with security operators and leaders throughout GIS to develop solutions to complex predictive analytic problems involving diverse input data sources including real time data.  This person will be expected to work alongside a team of Hadoop engineers to develop theories using security data, analyze the requirements of our stakeholders and provide expertise in a fairly complex technical environment.


The ideal candidates should be comfortable during technical demonstrations and be able to discuss the specifics of machine learning algorithms and preprocessing methods.  The candidate will be supporting our operation teams by providing expertise in exploratory data analysis, pattern discovery and advanced analytical techniques (e.g. neural networks, deep learning) to anticipate or detect undiscovered threats.


Success for this role will be achieved by identifying previously undiscovered intrusions or by improving the bank’s security posture or the measurement thereof.  The goal is to create new strategic and tactical value from security relevant data through the dedicated exploration, analysis and investigation of that data using leading edge analytic technologies and techniques.
