Are you a problem solver, explorer, and knowledge seeker – always asking, “What if?” 


If so, then you may be the new team member we’re looking for. Because at SAS, your curiosity matters – whether you’re developing algorithms, creating customer experiences, or answering critical questions. Curiosity is our code, and the opportunities here are endless. 


What we do  

We’re the leader in analytics. Through our software and services, we inspire customers around the world to transform data into intelligence. Our curiosity fuels innovation, pushing boundaries, challenging the status quo and changing the way we live.

Our work spans numerous domains, including Law Enforcement, Intelligence and Investigation Management, Child Protection, Fraud and Security Intelligence, Data Management, IOT, Enterprise Decisioning, and Financial Risk.

Our focus is on making a real-world impact, whether that be by helping users make better sense of their data; by allowing analytics to be used by more and more people; by detecting fraud and risk for our customers; by uncovering insights on edge devices and sensors; or much more.
