Who You'll Work With

You’ll work with Digital McKinsey in one of our North America offices.  

Digital McKinsey brings together the best of McKinsey’s digital capabilities to help our clients use digital technology to transform their businesses. As part of this group, you’ll join a global team working on everything from IT modernization and strategy to agile, cloud, cybersecurity, and digital transformation. You’ll typically work on projects across all industries and functions and will be fully integrated with the rest of our global firm.

You’ll also work with colleagues from across McKinsey & Company to help our clients deliver breakthrough products, experiences, and businesses, both on technology and non-technology topics.

Our office culture is casual, fun and social, with an emphasis on education and innovation. We have the freedom to try new ideas, experiment and are expected to be constantly learning and growing. There is also a strong emphasis on mentoring others in the group, enabling them to grow and learn.

What You'll Do

You will coach clients on a variety of digital topics including product management, design thinking, engineering culture, and DevOps.

You'll leverage your strong communication skills to coach and mentor teams and leaders on Agile values and principles. Additionally, you’ll structure large-scale Agile transformations with uncertain or changing constraints. Lastly, you will engage with consulting teams as a “do-er” to actively problem solve, create content, and facilitate trainings to best serve our clients.
