Who You'll Work With

You will be based in one of our North America offices and will work with our Financial Services Lab Solution team to develop leading edge analytics software for the banking industry. 

Financial Services Lab is part of McKinsey’s New Ventures. Our work encompasses overall strategies and specific solutions for consumer banking and wholesale business; advanced analytics and client segments; organizational issues; performance improvement; and mergers and alliances. 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.
As one of the fastest-growing parts of our firm, New Ventures has more than 1,000 dedicated professionals (including more than 800 data scientists and technologists) and we’re hiring more mathematicians, data scientists, designers, software engineers, designers, product managers, client development managers and general managers.

What You'll Do

You will design and build the web platform that transforms and aggregates the advanced analytics performed by our data scientists into concise, accurate, and focused software tools.

You will help us design our stack, and you will help us make it successful. You will help us select and design our architecture, our languages, and our tools. Then, you and your team 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.

You will ship infrastructure and software covering customer acquisition and retention, pricing, fraud detection, customer service, and more for forward-thinking financial services. You will solve hard problems as efficiently and cleverly as a startup would, and “wow” people with our solutions. You will bring the best of user experience and design from the consumer software world to the enterprise.
