What You May Find Important

Data Science Automation is the premier adaptive automation systems integrator, leveraging COTS products in the design & implementation of custom-engineered solutions spanning mechanical, electrical, controls & software engineering disciplines.  DSA is an award-winning, fast-growth, technology consulting and systems engineering firm. We provide our regional, national and international clients with best-of-breed laboratory, test and industrial automation solutions applied to diverse industries and government agencies.

Our clients often comment favorably about our people, personalities, process and performance.

  • “You’d be really lucky to work for DSA.” — Lawson Mardon Wheaton
  • “DSA does a really good job of hiring.” — Bechtel Bettis
  • “The most enjoyment I get from my job is when DSA is on-site.” — General Electric

Why work for one company in one industry, when you can have the best of all worlds. Work at DSA on projects for an extensive client base including a who’s who in their respective industries: GE, ExxonMobil, National Instruments, US Govt Agencies, GlaxoSmithKline, Alcoa, Northrop Grumman, Mack Trucks, General Dynamics, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Novartis, Philips, Siemens, Medrad, etc.

By its nature, the business of Data Science Automation is difficult; we are outsiders — guns for hire — that must demonstrate constant value, juggling multiple clients, while occasionally under intense scrutiny to perform under adverse conditions. If you are seeking an easy, lucrative career, this is not a good choice. However, if you offer exceptional, relevant skills, and prefer employment with a stable and revered company, DSA offers unprecedented growth & learning potential with diverse assignments at hundreds of the best client companies.

What DSA Does Find Important

As a small business providing complex services to the most demanding clients, we are extremely selective in our recruiting practices.  We offer diverse, challenging, rewarding and collaborative experiences to talented team players that can handle the daily responsibility of having a direct and measurable impact on a company’s performance.

Candidates should be prepared to endure an extended and thorough recruiting process based on advanced Topgrading principles. We require all of our A-Players to contribute clearly & openly in a flexible work environment, to grow professionally given measured accountability, and to perform assigned duties masterfully with an organization based on integrity and managed for growth.

Candidates must be hardworking, self-starting, confident, and highly motivated. They must have the demonstrated ability to thrive in a dynamic environment offering diverse industry exposure & extreme project variety, and to assume broad responsibilities and overcome significant technical challenges.


Although we would like to encourage all enterprising and talented candidates to apply, we are unable to consider your employment if any of the following are true:
• You are not a US Citizen (DSA does not provide sponsorship)
• You did not graduate from college with at least 3.25/4.0 (DSA only hires dedicated achievers)
• You cannot work from our Pittsburgh headquarters for the first 6 months (DSA orientation takes at least this long)

Thank you for your interest in our company and the great work we do.  We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to learn about the opportunities available with us.
