Who You’ll Work With
You’ll work with our Data Science and Analytics group in Waltham, Massachusetts at our Knowledge Center. As a member of this team, you’ll work with McKinsey consulting teams to build NLP models, creating a foundation for sound recommendations for client studies and internal projects.
What You’ll Do
You will analyze and evaluate both structured and unstructured data, and build NLP models, while effectively balancing quality, availability, timeliness and cost factors.
Leveraging your advanced data analysis skills, you will create innovative approaches to answer our clients’ most relevant questions. You will apply cutting-edge NLP approaches to an enormous variety of problems across several industries.
You will work with consultants, clients and internal teams to prepare complex data analyses and models that help solve client problems and deliver significant measurable impact. Your work will be project-oriented and you will often be responsible for the entire analytical process – from outlining the type of solution through implementation, interpretation of results and transferring capabilities to the client or colleagues. You will constructively discuss your findings in dialog with consultants and clients while always looking for the best solution. Working on projects and exchanging experiences with your colleagues means you will face new intellectual challenges on a daily basis, while continuously building your methodological knowledge and skills.
