Financial Services Lab is part of McKinsey Solutions and McKinsey's New Ventures.

McKinsey's Financial Services Lab is a dynamic and quickly growing platform within the firm serving some of the top banks in the world.

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.

You will be responsible for developing strategic and operational plans to build a distinctive asset.

You will provide strategic input to the development of the product roadmap and work with our tech accelerator and engineering group to drive the execution.
