Who You'll Work With

You'll be based in our office in Lisbon, and will be working with our Strategy & Corporate Finance practice.
McKinsey fosters innovation driven by analytics, design thinking, mobile and social by developing new products/services and integrating them into our client work. Our Corporate Performance Analytics team is helping to shift our model toward asset based consulting and is foundational to our entrepreneurial culture. Through innovative software as a service solutions, strategic acquisitions, and a vibrant ecosystem of alliances, we are redefining what it means to work with McKinsey.
Our Corporate Performance Analytics team (CPAnalytics) covers the entire corporate value chain to enable clients to analyze and manage the true sources of company value. Many client leaders struggle to measure, interpret, and manage their company’s true source of value.
Corporate Performance Analytics is an integrated financial analytics solution which delivers strategy planning, performance management, and capability building tools. It combines a comprehensive database with McKinsey’s corporate finance valuation framework to help clients zoom in on the dimensions that create value for shareholders and the levers that drive their operating performance.

What You'll Do

You will work with in-house and external partner development teams to build products with strong user value, impressive usability and enterprise grade quality standards.
You'll have the opportunity to partner with solution leaders, software engineers and product design team members to deliver software products with high levels of value, usability, quality and predictability.
You will also build strong partnerships with subject matter experts and client facing colleagues to understand the value of planned products. You will develop user personas and user journeys to create user empathy and understanding within the team, and you'll leverage your understanding of key agile engineering methodology and modern software development best practices.
Additionally, you'll participate in and lead concept sprints to build a product roadmap, define MVP functionality and collect user feedback. You will build understanding and appreciation for the practice of product management among your team members and colleagues, and you'll guide solution teams through the process of building and launching truly great products.
Furthermore, you'll be busy identifying and escalating product delivery barriers, dependencies or risks, ensuring the value of the user stories and negotiating with stakeholders and engineer to deliver the most value within tight timelines and budgets. You'll manage yourself day to day with regards to priorities, time and commitments within your team setting and ensuring that product management standards and best practices are exercised.
