World Class Technology Function is a priority topic within BCG's Technology and Digital Advantage Practice, which is at the heart of the strategic impact we have with our clients.


As a Knowledge Team member, you will serve as thought partner and content expert to project teams and topic leaders (who are typically among BCG senior leadership), supporting them in their daily work and helping to solve complex issues. Most weeks you will support many different project teams work through their client's technology transformation challenges, other weeks you will go deeper at a single client, including working directly with client counterparts.

For a strong performing Senior Knowledge Analyst, there is also the option to transfer into our Client Focus career path later-on, which would bring opportunities to work even more on consulting projects with direct client interactions.

As a Senior Knowledge Analyst on the Topic Activation track at BCG, you will also drive development of intellectual property and knowledge assets to support our Technology and Digital business. You will actively support the commercialization of Technology Function related topics through working with business leaders to drive proposals and go-to-market efforts. Additionally, you will assist with on-boarding, training, and guiding junior colleagues - also sharing best practices within the team.
