Description

Luxoft has an immediate newly created opportunity internally for a Digital Consulting Lead for North America to be out of our NYC location.

**Someone with strong digital transformation experience within Financial Services is mandatory**

Practice overview
The Digital Consulting Practice is focused on accelerating the transformation of the FS industry into the digital age. We assist our clients at all stages of their digital transformation journey, from strategy and disruption to building digital solutions and finally scaling their digital transformation programs through Digital Engineering Centers. We engage with clients to help them understand and leverage disruptive technologies such as Blockchain, AI / Machine Learning and Cloud, which we believe will shape the future of the industry. It is our belief that banks will move towards being data-centric, distribution and productivity focused organizations with a thin technology layer. We fill a niche in the market as a digital and innovative consultancy focused on complex problems, which can scale better than small niche consultancies and can deal better with complex FS-specific problems than commodity technology players. We work with clients around the globe, using New York, Toronto, London, Singapore and Sydney as bases for our onshore consulting staff and delivering projects with teams in Eastern Europe.


We are very much a start-up environment within a large company, moving at fast pace and always looking to push the boundaries of innovation.
