What You Will Bring: 

  • 2+ years in management consulting, startup operations, or equivalent experience

  • Exceptional problem-solving skills, with the ability to synthesis ambiguous information into actionable insights and recommendations; strong results orientation 
  • Strong analytical capabilities; fluency in Excel for financial models, market analyses, etc. 
  • Ability to communicate clearly, compellingly, and effectively across written and presentation formats
