Applicants should be excited at the prospect of battling FOIA officers, scraping poorly formed websites and learning to write computer code that ferrets out fraud.
You should have experience analyzing and visualizing data with Excel, SQL, R, Python or similar tools, and also have an understanding of scripting with Python or other languages to scrape and mold unstructured data from websites.
