You have a track record of successfully delivering complex projects with analytical rigor, thought-leadership and executive-level narration. You are comfortable managing multiple – and competing – projects at the same time, adjusting your priorities on the fly. You know when to sweat the details and when to back off and look at the bigger picture. Long-term you are motivated by business, strategic and consumer impact, so you seek to see over the horizon and tackle new challenges.

  • Frame questions, analysis and strategic considerations for executives / key stakeholders to make the best, most informed decisions
  • Be a subject matter expert on our industry, adjacent spaces and relevant other companies
  • Work closely with cross-functional teams and leadership to drive recommendations

What We Look For

  • 3-5 years of experience at a top-tier management consulting firm or investment bank, preferably with focus on fintech, payments, financial services or related sectors
  • 3-5 years of experience in a strategy or corporate development role at a leading fintech, payments or financial services company
  • Ability to think creatively and critically and thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic, and often ambiguous work environment
  • Excellent analytical skills combined with a practical, quantifiable and structured approach to problem solving
  • Ability to context switch and ramp up quickly on new topics
  • Attentive to details and highly organized, with strong independent planning and process management skills
