Descrição da Vaga

Senior Data Scientist - Advanced Analytics

Who You'll Work With

You’ll work with our Analytics group in São Paulo, Brazil.

As a member of McKinsey Analytics, you will be responsible for blending strategic thinking with the latest tools and technologies, advising on developing and defining strategies and solutions to help our clients around Latin America to solve their most critical problems. By applying advanced analytics to address challenges across different areas, we help our clients gain significant, sustained improvements in performance. We work with clients to identify where to focus, convert data and models into actionable insights, and develop institutional skills and structures to sustain impact. We use advanced analytics not only to improve the design of physical systems but also to address management infrastructures and employees’ attitudes and behaviors so that clients are able to lead change independently.

You'll focus on three broad areas of responsibility, including analytics, client service support and development, and knowledge transfer and practice development.

You'll create valuable, transformative business strategies through the measurement, manipulation, reporting and dissemination of broad sets of data. You'll also apply and advise on state-of-the-art advanced analytic and quantitative tools and modeling techniques in order to derive business insights, solve complex business problems and improve decisions. You'll review, support and advise on the day-to-day analytics requirements of clients’ key operational processes while continually improving the impact of these processes, and you'll continually explore innovative analytical techniques, processes, tools, etc. to better serve clients and to be a thought leader in the industry.

As a core member of the consulting team, you'll conduct deep analytics on a broad set of client and external data and you'll have a lead role in team problem solving through findings and insights from analysis. You'll create value for clients by understanding their needs and translating them into optimal desired analytical services and you'll be a leader in overseeing analytics process and data integration between clients and McKinsey.

Furthermore, you'll lead and support the development of knowledge for our firm's analytic group. You'll create a roadmap for a greater understanding of analytics and its impact in the consulting population and you'll partner with Data Engineers to ensure timely and effective methods of the extraction, assembly and transfer of broad, complex sets of data.

Recomendam a empresa a um amigo

  • Há 3 meses

    Lugar excelente por um período de tempo


    São Paulo, SP

    Prós: Aprendizado formal e in the job Oportunidades de ter experiência em diferentes indústrias e funções Exposição a top management de diversas empresas

    Contras: Lifestyle: horas longas e por vezes imprevisíveis. Uma semana típica de trabalho envolve facilmente 65-75h e regularmente envolve viagens. Difícil conciliar com família e filhos.

    Conselhos para presidência: Estimular de forma ainda mais forte que sócios e equivalentes se importem com lifestyle

    Recomenda a empresa: Sim

  • Há aproximadamente 2 meses

    Uma escola


    São Paulo, SP

    Prós: Curva de aprendizado absurda; exposição a pessoas muito seniores e problemas relevantes para grandes executivos. Também, a firma se preocupa a todo momento com seu desenvolvimento.

    Contras: Muito difícil ter work-life balance, a pressão é sempre alta e muitas vezes demanda deixar coisas importantes na nossa vida de lado. Porém a firma está mudando o mindset aos poucos.

    Recomenda a empresa: Sim
