McKinsey Hires from Turing

Company: McKinsey & Company
Number of Turing grads hired: 15 since 2018

McKinsey & Company is a global consulting firm focused on helping organizations across the private, public, and social sectors turn ambition into reality by using technology to create sustainable change. Problem solving is the essence of everything McKinsey does. Their software engineers are constantly changing gears—working with new tech, new industries, and new providers. So when McKinsey & Company Executive Recruiter Karen Jimenez is hiring a junior developer, she looks for people who are excited to try different approaches to situations.

Being passionate about learning new things is a must, as is the ability to manage and thrive in ambiguous situations and the desire to work as part of Agile teams. In the technical realm, candidates must have experience with JavaScript, C# or Java; experience with Node.js, React and other frameworks; and experience with relational and non-relational databases. Turing grads come equipped with this experience.
