Practice Area Profile

BCG Platinion launched in Germany in 2000 to add deep technical expertise to the Boston Consulting Group’s existing capabilities. Today, our presence spans across the globe, with offices in Asia, Europe, and South and North America. Our New York-based North American team began in 2014 and in 2017 acquired MAYA Design, a Pittsburgh-based digital design and innovation lab, to grow our capabilities around technology and design.

Role Profile

Designers at BCG Platinion are:

  • Flexible and user-focused. They have the ability to design in multiple mediums and levels of interactivity, all while employing appropriate human-centered design methods.
  • Visual exceptional. They are highly skilled in creating and critiquing, because they believe that emotion and presentation matter equally as much as usability.
  • Iterative. They are excited to prototype at all levels of fidelity—and have the humility to walk away from ideas when they fail.
  • Collaborative. They have the ability and enthusiasm to work with researchers, engineers, business consultants, and other designers who will challenge and support one another.
  • Communicators. They have strong verbal, written, and presentation skills, and the ability to provide the rationale behind their design decisions to colleagues and clients.
  • Empathetic. They desire to truly understand humans and their behavior—and turn complex tasks into intuitive, easy-to-use solutions.
  • Architectural thinkers. They are not only able to understand and visualize complex systems, but work with engineers and systems architects to design solutions that will last.
  • Comfortable with ambiguity. They know projects and businesses move fast. That means the path forward isn’t always well-defined. They are comfortable and collaborative through our process.


You’re Good At:

  • Working with diverse sets of clients across domains and industries
  • Designing and prototyping digital products—websites, apps, and beyond—at all levels of fidelity
  • Collaborating with researchers, engineers, business consultants, and other designers to create world-class work
  • Participating in user research, communicate findings, translate insights into great new experiences
  • Envisioning new, novel experiences beyond what is expected—pushing the envelope beyond screens towards the edge of interaction and technology
  • Broadening your skill set beyond your core abilities—which might include project management, client relationship management, and/or technological skill development

Your Qualifications

You Bring:

  • 2+ years in an UI design role or relevant professional experience.
  • BS/BA or MS in design, interaction design, design planning, human-computer interaction, or other relevant field, or equivalent experience.
