The impact of your work is normally realized in a very short span of study duration. You'll also focus on learning new technologies and you'll contribute to knowledge sharing, usually through blogs or conferences.

This would be a hybrid client-facing/technical role using state of the art technologies, whilst also being able to communicate complex intractable ideas to non-technical audiences. Collecting clear requirements is a key part of this role and will define the technical strategy the team employs on the study.

You will influence many of the recommendations our clients need to positively change their businesses and enhance performance.
