Your chance to shape the future of IT strategy

Digital technologies are disrupting the fundamentals of business within every industry. These advances promise great benefits to the companies that get it right. With a technical background or a passion for IT, you will bring exactly the right mix to support our clients in their digital transformations.

Your working environment

The digital group in Zurich is a small, close-knit community of consultants who are a part of a broader European network. Examples of their projects and topics of interest include cybersecurity, cloud computing, digitization of the customer journey in various industries, the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0, and agile or scrum at scale.

Your profile

We have a growing need for candidates who have a technical—ideally computer science—background and a strong interest in IT and its role in a company. Therefore, most digital consultants are computer scientists, natural scientists, or engineers. Your enthusiasm for IT may be reflected by internships or entrepreneurial experience. Hardly any of our consultants see themselves as technical purists, instead, we work on diverse projects that require skills in other areas besides IT.

Many routes to McKinsey

I wanted to work on broad computer science topics, beyond just coding.
