What You'll Do

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will work closely with case team members to assess and coach our clients' digital teams, define 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. You will be responsible for owning the delivery of specific software modules and help develop architect technical solutions. You will integrate front-end and back-end technologies and understand how your team’s output fits within the overall client  environment. You will collaborate closely with other Platinion disciplines (design, product and architecture) as well as coach other project members and help lead other consultants in their own work stream when possible. 

As part of our BCG Platinion consulting team, you will work on a variety of technology topics, 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.

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.
