What You'll Do

BCG’s Data & Digital offering is closely aligned to our Technology Advantage practice were we work with our clients (often CIOs and CTOs), to position companies for the future. The rapid advance of technology has resulted in an explosion of data in business. The ability to decode this data can unlock a higher level of insight and drive a superior level of performance. That’s where we come in.

With experts in Big Data, Digital Business models, IT strategy, and IT efficiency/effectiveness, we leverage digital solutions to power transformations that stick. We believe transformations fail when companies focus too much on the finish line and not enough on the capabilities that must be built in order to get there and—most importantly—to stay there. Our teams work with client members from all levels of the organization in order to integrate our staff's strategy, operational, and industry experience with the client's individual situation, culture, and unique constraints.

Data and Digital Platform Experts help our clients improve performance through the use of data and technology. The extent to which a company has made the transition to a digital organization determines its ability to effectively field data, extrapolate useful information, and act on it in real-time. By combining digital and data analytics expertise with battle-tested transformation experience, you will empower companies to make that leap.

In this role, you will drive the vision for target technology platforms that deliver on client business objectives, and outline an achievable roadmap to implementation. You will set the high-level structure for the transformation effort, manage to tight timelines and client deliverables, provide hands-on training, and deliver the key enablers required to complete the project. Your team will include senior BCG leadership, teams of BCG Consultants, and both junior and senior client leaders working collaboratively to facilitate the transformation.

The Expert Consulting Track (ECT) is vital to BCG’s ability to successfully meet our clients’ demand for deep expertise and advanced technical capabilities. Experts deliver next-level impact for BCG's most complex and cutting-edge client challenges. Experts focus on developing BCG's thought leadership, commercial capabilities, and intellectual property assets; and their work is essential to our delivery model. Working as part of a multidisciplinary team to bring the ‘best of BCG’ to our clients, Experts come from diverse backgrounds, with expertise often gained outside of BCG in industry, academia, or specialized consulting.

As an Expert Associate Director, you will apply your deep expertise to generate value for our clients while building and contributing to BCG’s intellectual capital. Your role in projects can vary from team management to team advisor. You will leverage your expertise to add insight and drive clients toward recommendations and you will be viewed as a trusted advisor by senior clients. You will help scope and structure the work, onboard team members, and provide guidance throughout the project. Expert Principals contribute significantly to BCG’s intellectual capital, generate interest and excitement about their expertise area, and coach and mentor others.
