Senior Technical Analyst
College Park, MD

Security Clearance:
  • A current government clearance, background investigation, and polygraph are required.
OPS Consulting is seeking an experienced professional to be the bridge between systems engineers trenched in program offices and the estimators responsible for determining and defending the cost of the program life cycle.  The candidate STA has strong communications skills, conversant in systems engineering concepts, activities, and products, preferably in the government environment.  (Actual development experience is a plus, but not required.)  It is the STA’s responsibility to translate software requirements into a fully traceable format, such as function points, source lines of code (SLOC), or objects, for instance.  This is traditionally known as the “software size.”  Additionally, it is within the STA’s purview to collect and maintain information pertinent to the producing the estimate, such as (but not limited to) development and acquisition methods; technical and performance parameters, and policy constraints.  The STA works closely with cost analysts to produce the software estimate, which is often the most influential driver of the lifecycle cost estimate. 
Required Experience:
  • Training and experience in software estimation tools (i.e. COCOMO, SEER, PRICE, SLIM). 
  • Expertise in software measurement (familiarity with IFPUG, analysis of source code, COTS/glue code integration, for instance).
