Andrea

Client Lead

What does your typical day look like?

Days as a consultant are pretty dynamic — you could be preparing to lead a workshop, working on a product roadmap, sitting with research on customer interviews, mentoring team members, etc. A few things are constant every day, though: you get to solve interesting problems, be creative, and work with amazing people.

Michelle

Global Chief of Staff

How does the company support your career growth?

Our teams are structured to allow for support and learning. I’ve had different mentors and people leaders in my tenure with the firm, which means there’s always someone I can reach out to with questions or issues. I always feel fully supported.

Jamie

Technical Consultant

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

As a digital innovation firm, creativity is in our DNA. Employees self-organize around our R&D function, what we internally call Labs, solving problems with emerging technologies to show off to our clients. Many of these ideas have gone on to help our clients better understand their end-user.

Kelly

CEO

What projects are you most excited about?

I really enjoy working on cloud projects because part of modernization is showing our clients what we’re capable of with new emerging technologies, new frameworks and really showing them what their current system could be and what they should be reaching forward to.
