Who You'll Work With

You'll work with our Energy Insights team in Houston. McKinsey 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 spend most of your time developing proprietary 'big data' analytics and tools to help us serve our clients.

This includes contributing to daily problem solving, structuring, modeling and analytic support for our core industry assessment tools and analysis. You will be responsible for gathering the information necessary to develop tools and then developing them on standard platforms, such as MATLAB. You will also support Energy Insights colleagues in improving and deploying existing tools.

You will be responsible for creating and maintaining the databases that underpin our models and tools. You will also help further automate our databases and tools to make them more efficient by writing simple scripts and macros to do the same.

You'll have the opportunity to gain new skills and build on the strengths you bring to the firm. You will receive exceptional training as well as frequent coaching and mentoring from colleagues on your teams
