Who You'll Work With

You will be based in our Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong or Taipei office as part of McKinsey Digital in Greater China region. This group brings together the best of McKinsey’s capabilities to help our clients use technology to transform and build new businesses.
McKinsey Digital is a global team of thousands of developers, designers, agile coaches, and business-technology consultants. Using our trusted build-operate-transfer approach, we help large organizations reinvent their core with pioneering, new digital products, services, and even fully-fledged attacker brands. We call this digital business building. We combine our advisory services and deep industry knowledge with a proven track record in digital business building. It’s a distinctive offer: an unparalleled combination of the old world and the new. Our value proposition spans the full product life cycle, ranging from data diagnostic to pilot, strategy, solution implementation and ongoing operation.
Depending on client needs, we either create a new digital unit for an existing business or we incubate, and ultimately scale, a new stand-alone business. In both contexts, we start with a strong mandate for innovation and seed teams with McKinsey product owners, user-centric designers, engineers, agile experts and more—and a strong interim leadership team to operate the new entity. Together we create a vision and road map. The new digital unit will be the centre of innovation, helping to architect the future path of the enterprise.
LEAP by McKinsey works with established organizations to imagine, build, and scale new businesses and develop the capabilities needed to do it again and again. Our business-building methodology brings together the flexibility of a start-up with the resources and experience of a corporation. We build with clients, not for them, as one integrated team. By focusing on capabilities, we create businesses that continue to thrive after we’ve gone. LEAP offers you the chance to build your own start-up inside an incumbent/incubator environment. 
Our firm’s culture is casual, fun and social, with an emphasis on education and innovation. We have the freedom to try new ideas, experiment and are expected to be constantly learning and growing. There is also a strong emphasis on mentoring other technology practitioner colleagues, enabling them to grow and learn.

What You'll Do

You will help build disruptive digital capabilities for large organizations, driving lasting innovation and breakthrough engagement.
Depending on client needs, you will help create a new digital unit for an existing business or help incubate and ultimately scale a new stand-alone business. In both contexts, you will start with a strong mandate for innovation and seed teams both from our clients and with McKinsey practitioners — product owners, user-centric designers, engineers, agile experts and more — and a strong interim leadership team to operate the new entity. 
You will partner with clients to transform their digital capabilities using our build-operate-transfer approach. You’ll leverage your experience in defining and leading tech-enabled transformations. You will work daily alongside colleagues from varying backgrounds on client needs, helping create a vision and road map for their new business, products or service lines. You will architect the future of these enterprises and be at the centre of innovation for clients as you help expand their business and establish a functioning organization 
Your role will be a mix of venture leader, entrepreneur in residence as well as C-suite type leadership for the businesses you help create. You will lead multiple cross-functional teams of both digital and non-digital professionals with the view to build a sustainable business you can hand over to our clients.
