Business Technology (BT) is a functional practice within McKinsey.

You will be a thought leader in the process of data transformation for our clients, providing expertise to our colleagues and clients.

This will include generating the overall business and investment case, the prioritization of business requirements, developing a next-generation data architecture, creating innovative data governance options, and supporting implementation through pilots and project management support.

You will assess and gain insights into business, IT and BI/analytics functions of leading companies from a top management perspective across sectors. Your role as an expert practitioner will enable you to apply your expertise across industries and a variety of functions and have a significant impact on our clients.

Additionally, you'll develop full-time McKinsey team members and clients to be effective frontline coaches, build their problem-solving capability and help to refine their coaching approaches.
