WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH

You will be based in our Amsterdam office as part of the McKinsey Digital team in Europe.

McKinsey Digital 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.

We bring a holistic approach to Digital consultancy; our teams are building new businesses, products and experiences. We are redefining entire industries. Our understanding of how technology can quickly deliver new value combined with the hands-on expertise of our consultants is helping global companies bring their strategies to life quickly so they can touch and see them in a real environment then adapt quickly.

You will work in an office where the 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 lead the execution of digital product development and transformation projects for leading industry players in Europe.

In this role, you will be a core member of the McKinsey consulting team with responsibilities that range from shaping product vision and strategic designs to managing and transforming agile product and leadership teams. You will engage in some of the most challenging business problems our clients are facing. These projects can range from rapid process re-inventions at leading financial institutions, ‘big data’ analytics at large scale retail organizations, to consumer-facing app development for traditional industries. In each situation, you will typically be at the center of problem solving, advising clients on how to successfully execute on their strategic vision with digital means.

You will be well versed in all aspects of the product, process and technology. You will be at the intersection of business strategy, client and implementation vendors and you'll be responsible for translating abstract visions into reality while managing client expectations as well as vendor efficiency. You will also be proficient in all aspects of the agile deliverables required for a technology team to build beautiful products. This includes hands-on development of wireframes, user stories, prioritization, product KPIs, monitoring/tracking and go-to-market strategies.
