This is a unique opportunity to play a key role in the Digital Experiences group within Accenture Technology Labs in San Francisco – The group is part of Accenture’s network of over 200 applied R&D experts at seven locations worldwide.
The Digital Experiences group focuses on how emerging technologies, such as immersive technology, social media, crowdsourcing, additive manufacturing, Internet of Things, and robotics can allow individuals and organizations to reimagine how they work and live: New ways to interact with computers, and to use computers to interact with each other, to experience the world, and to be more productive, engaged, fulfilled. As a technology researcher within Accenture, you’ll have the opportunity to apply innovative research across a wide range of contexts and industries. We incubate the technology for new practices and offerings for Accenture and see it through to pilots within Accenture and our clients, allowing you to see an idea from inception to experimentation, maturation, and commercial impact.
How we work
We collaborate very actively with partners in the academic, start-up and technology eco-systems. We develop provocative visions of how the world is going to change, and build cool, new systems to put our ideas to the test. We publish, we patent and we blog. We see our concepts soar to find uses across the many industries Accenture supports (healthcare, manufacturing, retail, travel and numerous others). Are you ready to join us and help imagine how technologies like natural language processing, machine learning, and knowledge representation and reasoning systems can enhance the work and lives of millions?
As a research scientist, you will lead the key activities throughout your projects:
- spotting the opportunities created by breakthrough technologies to transform business, the workforce or consumer experience;
- working closely with teammates and industry experts to design and implement an approach that demonstrates the potential of your idea;
- proving the real-world impact of your concepts through pilots with early adopter clients.
You are an expert in one or more areas relevant to Digital Experience, such as human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, collaboration, cognition. You love learning. You think differently and communicate clearly. You can maximize the opportunities that working in a fast-paced, highly collaborative and influential team offers you.
