Steve Davis is a founding partner of Signafire and has led the concept and architecture of Signafire’s unique approach to big data analytics. Prior to Signafire, Steve worked at a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) and directly supported an elite U.S. Special Operations Command innovation and fusion cell. In this capacity, Steve worked directly with all-source, human terrain, geospatial, and other specialized intelligence analysts to rapidly develop tools and techniques to integrate and exploit large volumes of data. Steve’s hallmark in this role was the ability to flexibly develop new technologies to support warfighters in extreme circumstances, deploying new technologies on a vastly accelerated time schedule. During his time with Special Operations, Steve deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and received awards from the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency for his efforts to integrate systems, implement novel solutions, and support deployed forces. Steve received a BS with highest distinction in Systems and Information Engineering, and a Master of Science (MS) in Systems and Information Engineering at the University of Virginia.
