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. We support our clients’ total digital transformation through technology, design, cybersecurity, and risk management & financial engineering capabilities. And together with BCG, BCG Platinion’s interdisciplinary team of technical experts enable customized technical solutions and accelerate delivery value through new business platforms, application consolidations, and major system implementations.

What You'll Do

We need you - a talented Software Engineer across several disciplines – to join us in building transformative digital solutions for our clients using the latest emerging technology. You’ll lead the design, development, and implementation of Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) , data pipelines, and full-stack customer journeys.

As a Software Engineer, you will work closely with case team members to assess our clients' digital teams, contribute to technical strategies, architecture & engineering solutions and apply your technical know-how and understanding of business contexts. You will conduct research into emerging technologies, build proof of concepts as well as build digital apps, APIs and data solutions to drive digital transformation projects. As you acquire experience, you will be responsible for owning the delivery of specific software modules and help architect technical solutions. 

As part of our BCG Platinion consulting team, you will work on a variety of technology topics, collaborating closely with other Platinion disciplines, particularly with our Design and Architecture teams, applying your engineering consulting skills to strategic technology challenges.  You’ll be supported by an extensive training curriculum (the same programme as all BCG consultants), plus technology-specific training and mentoring to build your skills.

What You'll Bring (Experience & Qualifications)


  • Iterating: You are excited to prototype at all levels of fidelity—and have the humility to walk away from ideas when they fail.
  • Collaborating: You have the ability and enthusiasm to work with researchers, engineers, business consultants, and other designers who will all challenge and support each other.
  • Working with ambiguity: You know projects and businesses move fast. That means the path forward isn’t always well-defined. You are comfortable and collaborative through our process.
