Practice Area Profile

What You'll Do

We're bringing design to the front line of business challenges and creating work that solves problems in novel, feasible, and desirable ways. We are looking for someone passionate about supporting the research and/or design of digital products, a curious individual who is passionate about advocating for user needs, and thinks in terms of design systems.

Designers at BCG are:

  • Flexible and user-focused. They have the ability to design in multiple mediums and levels of interactivity, all while employing appropriate human-centered design methods.
  • Visual exceptional. They are highly skilled in creating and critiquing, because they believe that emotion and presentation matter equally as much as usability.
  • Iterative. They are excited to prototype at all levels of fidelity—and have the humility to walk away from ideas when they fail.
  • Collaborative. They have the ability and enthusiasm to work alongside engineers, business consultants, and other designers who will challenge and support one another.
  • Communicators. They have strong verbal, written, and presentation skills, and the ability to provide the rationale behind their design decisions to colleagues and clients.
  • Empathetic. They desire to truly understand humans and their behavior—and turn complex tasks into intuitive, easy-to-use solutions.
  • Architectural thinkers. They are not only able to understand and visualize complex systems, but work with engineers and systems architects to design solutions that will last.
  • Comfortable with ambiguity. They know projects and businesses move fast. That means the path forward isn’t always well-defined. They are comfortable and collaborative through our process.

What You'll Bring (Experience & Qualifications)

You're good at:

  • Supporting diverse sets of clients across domains and industries
  • Designing and prototyping digital products—websites, apps, and beyond—at all levels of fidelity
  • Collaborating with researchers, engineers, business consultants, and other designers to create world-class work
  • Supporting the facilitation of workshops with diverse stakeholders, from client teams to community partners, to collaboratively explore domains and challenges, synthesize data, generate concepts, and present work.
  • Participating in user research, communicating findings, translating insights into great new experiences
  • Envisioning new, novel experiences beyond what is expected—pushing the envelope beyond screens towards the edge of interaction and technology
  • Broadening your skill set beyond your core abilities—which might include project management, client relationship management, and/or technological skill development

Your Qualifications:

  • Pursuing a Masters in design, interaction design, design planning, human-computer interaction, or other relevant field
  • Graduating between December 2024 and June 2025
