  • Orchestrate service experiences and make workflows that span across all touch points (physical, digital and human)
  • Serve as a strategic partner to senior clients and internal teams
  • Collaborate with program management and team leads to define/refine scopes, briefs and approaches to the projects

Requirements:
  • 6-8 years of experience in service design and/or strategy consulting

  • Solid analytical skills with an ability to gather, analyze, and quickly synthesize key information to objectively craft and support recommendations
  • Love for collaboration, with a readiness guide brainstorms and conversations with clients/internal teams with sometimes conflicting viewpoints
  • Willing to put the good of the project outcome before personal interests
  • Organized, self-motivated, and detail-oriented, with the ability to work autonomously and be a self-starter in a demanding environment
  • Familiarity with Keynote
  • Bachelor’ s degree
  • Willingness to travel internationally up to 20%
