Job Description
Our Strategy consultants help clients optimize their business.

This high performing team helps with strategy growth and development, strategy transformation, analytics and strategic decision making, M&A strategy, and commercial and market due diligence.

The business world constantly changes, that’s not new. However, what is new is that this time it’s affecting how consultants go to market. More data points and sources; more desire for hard facts and analytics in decision making; virtually unlimited computing power and storage; better tools and new approaches – all of these changes have created an unprecedented opportunity to deliver better insights and real value at lower costs than ever before.

In the Analytic Apps group our goal is to use those trends and changes to build offerings that help make our consultants look brilliant in front of clients. We integrate data, proprietary analytic algorithms and visualizations, with the consultant’s deep industry knowledge and experience to answer complex business problems that challenge our clients in several industries. By doing this, we differentiate PwC in the marketplace, win more work and deliver outstanding value to our customers. We’re looking for innovative, insightful, collaborative and truly high-quality people to help us deliver on this vision and to impact the way the firm delivers value to our customers.

The Infrastructure and Development Operations (DevOps) team will be responsible for building new automation to maintain and expand the Analytic Apps group infrastructure and developer tools on premise, establishing the necessary infrastructure in a public or hybrid cloud environment, to provide client facing managed services in support of existing and new offerings.
