Who You'll Work With

Based in Melbourne Sydney or Perth as part of McKinsey & Company and QuantumBlack, you'll join a highly collaborative team of exceptionally talented Data Scientists, Data Architects, and Engineers.

QuantumBlack helps companies use data to drive decisions. We combine business experience, expertise in large-scale data analysis and visualization, and advanced software engineering know- how to deliver results. From aerospace to finance to Formula One, we help companies prototype, develop, and deploy bespoke data science and data visualisation solutions to make better decisions.

What You'll Do

You will leverage your software engineering skills and knowledge of Analytics and Data Science to engineer beautiful code in Scala, Spark, Python and/or R.
