We also undertake work on client issues in marketing, risk management, branding and customer relationship management.
McKinsey helps a broad range of banking and consumer finance firms navigate a dynamically changing environment, in which regulatory constraints, consumer de-leveraging and evolving channel dynamics present significant obstacles to profitability. Our approach to supporting clients is customized and collaborative, and combines deep industry expertise and experience with proprietary quantitative analytics and research. We help banks build the capabilities they need to succeed in the long term.
New Ventures fosters innovation driven by analytics, design thinking, mobile and social by developing new products/services and integrating them into our client work. It is helping to shift our model toward asset-based consulting and is a foundation for –and expands our investment in –our entrepreneurial culture. Through innovative software as a service solutions, strategic acquisitions, and a vibrant ecosystem of alliances, we are redefining what it means to work with McKinsey.

What You'll Do
You will design and build the web platform that aggregate, present, and transform advanced analytics performed by our data scientists.
You will make custom software tools that will be implemented directly within our client organizations. You will help us design our stack, and make it successful. You will also help design our back-end, front-end, and visualization tools and together with a team, you will make them come alive.
This is a unique opportunity for you to exercise your creativity and technical skills whilst growing into a thought leader in the financial services space and a technology leader at our firm.
The team’s software must cover customer acquisition and retention, pricing, fraud detection, customer service, and more for forward-thinking financial services; but it must do so with a flair. You will bring the best of user experience and design from the consumer software world to the enterprise.
