You will work with our data delivery team alongside data scientists, tool developers, consultants and clients on projects that use complex data and advanced modeling to solve client problems and deliver significant measurable impact.
As the solution is developed and brought to new clients, you will have exposure to the client leadership team serving defense and national security clients, senior McKinsey leaders and consultants.
In addition to the Defense Analytics Product team, you will work with our broader ecosystem of data and analytics experts within the Social, Healthcare and Public Entities (SHaPE) practice. This team has grown to 300+ colleagues globally over the last four years. It is a unique mix of public sector and healthcare experts, statisticians, engineers, data scientists and more.
We are redefining what it means for clients to work with McKinsey by driving innovation through advanced analytics, user experience design thinking, and new product development.

An Insider's view of McKinsey & Company

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The best part about coming to work is collaborating with people who are excited to be here. They push me to think about the mission and vision of my day-to-day work. We’re driven by big-picture motivations and everything we do has value. My work has meaning and purpose.


Senior Design User Research

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m working with the disaster recovery and business continuity group on a new project called Disaster Recovery as a Service. We’re building a failover process for many of our mission-critical applications. That way, during a disaster or emergency, we can limit downtime, bring systems back online, and keep business moving.


Director of Cloud Security

How does the company support your career growth?

McKinsey is the first place I’ve encountered that truly enables employees to work cross functionally . We have a 20% rule, meaning I spend about 80% of my time contributing to my main team, and the other 20% contributing to other development projects. I’m learning new industries and skills, while maintaining a manageable workload.


Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity happens when you have an environment that is inclusive and diverse, promotes psychological safety, rewards bold thinking, supports with the best tools and has a clear north star and strategic vision everyone can relate to. As a leader, I try my best to set such a tone and create these conditions.


Senior Partner, McKinsey Tech

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Maintaining a work-life balance is critical for our well-being. For me, that starts with leaders and a work environment that support flexibility. I was drawn to McKinsey’s culture of encouragement, support, and empowerment in caring for people. I have a very supportive and empathetic leader who inspires me to bring out my best at work.
