McKinsey’s Digital Labs (MDL) combines unparalleled business knowledge with a world-class agile development process to offer distinctive support for enterprise IT enablement. As Senior Software Engineer at MDL, you will work in small teams in a highly collaborative way, use the latest technologies and enjoy seeing the direct impact from your work. We combine Agile software development with expertise in mobile, cloud, and big data. 

Detailed Description

About McKinsey Digital Labs:
McKinsey & Company is one of the world’s premiere management consulting firms with some 8,500 consultants across 89 locations in 50 countries. The Firm provides a full spectrum of consulting services primarily to large corporations but also to governments, international institutions, and non-profit organizations. These organizations include 100 of the top 150 global companies, touching every major industry.

McKinsey’s Digital Labs (MDL) combines unparalleled business knowledge with a world-class agile development process to offer distinctive support for enterprise IT enablement.  Our highly skilled system architects and development managers configure software packages and build custom applications, creating the foundation for rapid and cost-effective implementation of systems that maximize value from day one.

Despite being part of a large, multinational organization, MDL works more like a small startup company. Our development teams are small, flexible and employ agile methodologies to quickly provide our consultants with the solutions they need. We combine the latest open source technologies together with traditional Enterprise software products.

The Role:
We create both rapid prototypes, usually in 2 to 3 weeks, as well as full-scale applications typically within 2 to 3 months, by working collaboratively and iteratively through design and development to deliver fully functioning web-based and mobile applications that meet business goals. Our Software Engineers contribute to the architecture across the technology stack, from database to native apps.

Desired Skills & Mindset:
Innovation and excellence are at the heart of McKinsey Digital Labs; therefore, we need talented and ambitious people who inspire and deliver change. We're looking for people (not monkeys) who:

  • Have first-hand understanding of Agile development methodologies.
  • Have a strong command of English language (both verbal and written)
  • Are passionate about technology
  • Are sound problem-solvers who can quickly process complex information and present it clearly and simply
  • Consistently deliver exceptional results and great ideas
  • Want to unleash their inner self-starter and work in an environment that fosters entrepreneurial minds
  • Are curious, willing to push themselves and want to learn
  • Are willing to travel (1 week/month)
  • Play an active role in the community, i.e. speaking at conferences, blogging, contributing to open source projects, etc.

A history of development in any of the following technologies and products, and opinions on how to use them properly: C#, ASP.NET, HTML5/CSS3, Ruby on Rails, Erlang, F#, JavaScript, jQuery, WCF, XAML, Silverlight, SQL Server, MongoDB, etc would be nice to have as well.

Our Offer:
Our office 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.

You will have exciting career prospects within an international company that is still considered a start-up, yet was created by a trusted advisor of some of the most influential organizations in the world. You will work on challenging tasks in an innovative state-of-the-art technological environment in small teams of highly motivated colleagues with various cultural backgrounds.
