Who You'll Work With
You'll join our Operations practice in Prague and will work with internal and external technical teams.
McKinsey's cost engineering experience is provided via an easy-to-use target cost calculation software called Cleansheet Solution.
Whether they make aircraft seats, optical switches, pizzas, or diapers companies in almost any industry can benefit from Design-
to-Value (DtV) and cost modeling. With the focus on the cost-benefit ratio, DtV strengthens customer value while helping cut time to market in some cases, by up to 50 percent and dramatically reducing product costs.
Cleansheet Solution makes it easier to establish cost transparency, analyze the cost drivers, calculate the target cost, and reap these benefits.
Cleansheet Solution is a set of tools, databases, a hotline and overall advisory support for target costing. The core element of the tool's infrastructure is a standardized costing application linked to repositories of cost data and supporting applications, which assist in performing subtasks that can simplify costing calculations.
The tool contains McKinsey’s regularly updated database on costs for materials, equipment, and labor, and the database leverages our insights into different industries and the knowledge of distinctive institutions, such as the global McKinsey Sourcing Centers, to provide the information required for calculating a wide range of Cleansheets.
What You'll Do
You will lead software development projects as well as oversee the technical aspects of design and development of multiple Operations solutions, with a primary focus on Cleansheet Solution.
You will act as a thought leader to the technical teams, and a thought partner to the consulting teams. Your responsibilities will range from shaping and implementing strategic products to ensuring that McKinsey’s craft stays on the leading edge of technology.
In this role you will create both rapid prototypes as well as full-scale applications, by working collaboratively and interactively through design and development to deliver fully functioning web-
based and mobile applications that meet business goals. You will contribute to the development across the technology stack, from database to native apps.
You will employ agile methodologies to create solutions and combine the latest open source technologies together with traditional enterprise software products.
