Who You'll Work With

You'll work with our Energy Insights team in Warsaw. Energy Insights is part of McKinsey Solutions and McKinsey's New Ventures.

Energy Insights, a specialist data and analytics unit, provides distinctive analysis, insights, and support to energy players. We offer services along the oil and gas value chain, including exploration and production, refining and marketing, natural gas, trading and oil field services, and equipment. Energy Insights' dedicated specialists apply proprietary tools and methodologies and a data-driven approach. With our strong ties with McKinsey's oil and gas consulting practice and access to the expertise of the wider McKinsey network, our research and analysis yield knowledge available nowhere else.

McKinsey 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 1,500 dedicated professionals (including more than 800 analysts and data scientists) and we're hiring more mathematicians, data scientists, designers, software engineers, product managers, client development managers and general managers.

What You'll Do

You will help shape McKinsey Energy Insights' perspective on global energy demand through our proprietary energy demand projection model.

You will focus on one or more specific modules (e.g., buildings, transport, industry, power) and will work closely with experts from our Oil & Gas, Electric Power and Sustainability & Resource Productivity practices. This will involve coordinating macroeconomic, technological and policy trends with McKinsey's insights on industry level- and overall energy system development.

Daily problem solving will be an important part of your job – you'll do this in partnership with your manager, the leadership of Energy Insights, and a range of colleagues within the wider firm. Over time, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the strategic direction of your area and help develop new and more detailed projections. You will deepen your global energy markets expertise and based on your knowledge, you will increasingly become the person-to-go-to in your content area, available for questions from colleagues as well as clients. This can potentially also include longer-term staffing on client-serving projects.

As we work with colleagues on multiple locations, your role will involve travel on a regular (~monthly) basis, particularly to Amsterdam and London. Moreover, as the team works in a start-up environment and is growing rapidly, your role will involve contributions to the further development of our product and team. Examples include involvement in product development (e.g., the web application), recruitment activities, presentations at external events, and – over time – coaching of more junior team members and interns.
