- Job description

Join Accenture and help transform leading organizations and communities around the world. The sheer scale of our capabilities and client engagements and the way we collaborate, operate and deliver value provides an unparalleled opportunity to grow and advance. Choose Accenture, and make delivering innovative work part of your extraordinary career.

People in our Client Delivery & Operations career track drive delivery and capability excellence through the design, development and/or delivery of a solution, service, capability or offering. They grow into delivery-focused roles, and can progress within their current role, laterally or upward.

Engineering Services professionals advise on and design and build structures, machines, devices, systems and processes for our clients by applying scientific, socio-economic and technical knowledge, as well as practical experience. Practice specialized engineering disciplines and hold the formal professional engineering credentials and certifications defined by their home countries.

Accenture has acquired Altitude, a human centered design and innovation firm based in Boston that uses its expertise in consumer insight, design and product engineering to help companies innovate and develop new physical products and services.

A bold innovative concept is meaningless if it can’t be realized. Our engineers have the expertise and experience to break down our clients most complex problems into discrete technical challenges and generate targeted solutions. We look for engineers who have fluency beyond technical issues, as we strive to integrate ourselves with client teams, and effectively frame trade-offs empowering them to socialize critical decisions throughout their organization. We aim to be trusted development partners, helping our clients bring the right solutions to market, regardless of where they are in the process.

At Altitude, we expect our senior engineers to enthusiastically lead any project that is thrown their way. You may be asked to figure out how to build an automated ice cream sphere manufacturing machine from the ground up, or create a production ready database for a high volume consumer appliance. We are strong believers in the build and test methodology and often find ourselves in the shop trying to validate a theory or solution as swiftly as possible. Quickly filtering what’s important versus what’s interesting is critical, as we seek to share learning’s with our clients in the moment. Our team embraces those that challenge convention, not just within projects, but with our process as well.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Minimum of 5 years’ of experience bringing a product (hardware & software) to market
  • Minimum of 3 years’ experience leading projects and project teams (manage quality of deliverable & scope, stay on-schedule & on-budget)
