In our team you will learn: 

  • To work with Product Owners, Technical Architects, Business Analysts, Designers, Researchers and Customer Leads

  • To lead and work positively and effectively within highly talented, constructive and experienced teams. This is very much a role that requires balance and flexibility between discipline and creativity and requires being adaptable and practical within fast-changing environments.


  • Work with global Fortune 500 clients on some of their most important innovation ideas and challenges

  • Work for a small, but high growth consulting business, within one of the world’s largest Professional Services firms.

  • Have ownership of your work, with responsibility, autonomy and accountability

  • Help clients evaluate and prioritize innovation initiatives

  • Help clients move from idea to growth, to cashflow and growth



  • Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent work experience

  • Experienced in any role that helped customers and had a revenue impact

  • Minimum of 2 years people management experience

  • Commercial experience in a technical / software and / or high growth company would be preferred

  • Excellent analysis, problem solving and decision-making skills

  • Excellent time and self-management through effective planning & prioritisation of tasks

  • A fluency in structured thinking, with second nature hypothesis forming, story telling while working with incomplete information

  • Excellent and critical understanding of Economics, Finance and Marketing, preferably demonstrated by real world experience rather than business school credentials (both are, of course, welcome)

  • English is required for this position as this role will regularly interact with stakeholders across Canada, US and other countries across our Global footprint where English is the common language. Due to the significant high volume of interactions with these English-speaking stakeholders, which is inherent to this position, it is not possible to reorganize the company's activities to avoid this requirement.

Bonus Points if: 

  • You enjoy having a non-consensus discussion with others; you view positive disagreement as a learning opportunity rather than a lack of alignment

  • You would prefer to be bold than align on mediocrity

  • You have a demonstrated passion or perseverance in any non-career related field for a time of over 2 years

  • You are genuinely humble, curious, and like to help others. You are happy to share your many failures, so that others may learn from them.

  • You can recall working within the “flow state” in a team environment. You can highlight a consistency in nurturing talent around you

  • You have a desire for Progress over Process and are comfortable and able to figure things out as they crop up to achieve an objective

  •  You have demonstrated a competitive edge and discipline for continuous improvement

  • That mundane summer job was character building, and introduced you to different people and experiences
