DIEM analytics Ltd is a micro defence consultancy with a strong track record in delivering strategy and decision support to the Ministry of Defence. Specialising in developing visualisations of problems spaces to capture stakeholder experience and gain stakeholder buy in, these visualisations are often turned into decision support tools or models, to be used by policy decision makers or by operators on the frontline. Recent examples of work include AI based tools to automate aspects of naval warfare and a logistical support tool for planning the relief effort in natural disasters.

This is a new post for an enthusiastic computer scientist who is looking for a challenging, problem solving role. As the sole computer scientist in DIEM, your advice and expertise will be invaluable in designing software and implementing algorithms for decision support projects.

Personal development is high on DIEM’s agenda and training will be made available where required. Start date is flexible, suitable for recent graduates as well as 2018 graduates who have yet to complete their course.
