Requires experience and knowledge of the corporate dataflow process.

Experience with the following applications: 

  • Must have experience using Niagarafiles since this is the framework we use for all our dataflows.  
  • Must have experience with ELK Stack. Every piece of information we process is tagged and stored. Needs to be familiar with how this works from a Niagarafiles perspective, then be able to query the data using Kibana using discovery, building visuals, and dashboards.
  • Collection Systems and Data Formats- On the front end there must be some knowledge of cellular and 802.11 collection systems, how they operate and what they generate, the file formats they generate, and what's inside them. On the backend, there must be some knowledge of the standard Agency formats and how to create them, since we translate what the system generates to the agency formats, the candidate will need to map from one format to another.
  • Linux OS, Linux Commands, and REGEX – must have experience with Linux OS, commands used in Linux, and REGEX (Regular Expression). All our servers and VMs run on a linux OS. Candidate will be required to navigate through and troubleshoot dataflow and file issues. Regex will be used in that process as well as configuring some processors in Niagarafiles.
  • Experience with the IC repositories, querying them, and understanding what is presented back is a must.

Additional Experience:

  • Experience with applications like TURNWEALTHY, XKEYSCORE, METTLESOME, SSDM & KEYCARD is not required but is a plus.
