The Role

Senior associates dive into every detail of the business, work with everyone in the firm, and are encouraged to cultivate their own analytical and creative approaches. On any given project, you’ll interact with Partners, Engagement Managers, Associates, and specialists, working to gain an understanding of our clients, their customers, and what makes them tick. Senior Associates typically manage the day-to-day activities of Associate consultants; and, based on exceptional performance, will be offered opportunities to lead client engagements.

While every day will be different, you can expect to…

  • Collaborate with multidisciplinary teams to lead hypothesis development, conduct and manage research & analysis, and formulate insightful and actionable recommendations for our clients
  • Gain deep understanding of our client’s customers through cutting edge qualitative & quantitative research methods
  • Research and identify relevant digital trends that can inform and impact disruptive transformations within a company or industry
  • Develop & create client experiences, such as physical or digital Safaris, Hackathons, and workshops in order to achieve impact and demonstrate Prophet’s signature and collaborative way of working.
  • Create personas and map user journeys to help uncover behaviors and opportunities across all elements of the customer experience, e.g.: web, social, mobile, in person/in store
  • Lead problem-solving sessions with a broad team of consultants and specialists, using both analytical and creative techniques to reach compelling results and create solutions
  • Present findings to clients, share your points of view, and lead team discussions
  • Manage, coach, and teach more junior consultants on topics such as marketing strategy, growth strategy, research and analytical techniques
  • Contribute to, and participate in, internal initiatives within the firm including IP development, marketing, training, and ongoing educational sessions
  • Contribute to the growth and success of non-profit clients through our Prophet 4 Non-Profit program, leading group discussions and in-field volunteer experiences
  • Support new business initiatives by designing recommended approaches and developing POVs supporting Prophet’s value proposition
  • Help drive Prophet culture at the local office level through events such as: class gatherings, office-wide social outings, and holiday celebrations

What You Need to Bring:

  • A great education: MBA from a top business school is preferred; a BA or BS degree with demonstrated academic performance
  • Relevant experience: 5 or more years of work experience, ideally with a leading business, brand, or digital strategy firm
  • Confusion tolerance: comfort with ambiguity and the ability to adapt, flex, and change directions given client, project, and team circumstances, understanding the ever-changing business world

What We Look For:

  • Well-developed research and analytical capabilities, problem-solving skills, and creative thinking
  • Superior communication skills, both verbal and written
  • Knowledge of, and passion for, brand, digital, and marketing strategy; and, how they impact business outcomes
  • Experience developing a strategy as well as executing the tactical implications of that strategy
  • Understanding of agile or other test-and-learn or design-thinking methodologies to co-create with audiences and quickly develop testable materials
  • Knowledge of, or experience with, digital analytics tools – both native and 3rd party: Google, Adobe, Social (Brandwatch, Sprinklr, Facebook, etc.)
  • A curious mind with an unrelenting commitment to get to the answer, to test new approaches, learn new skills, and push others’ assumptions
  • The ability to work independently in a fast-paced and dynamic environment with limited supervision
  • A team player who is adept at enhancing team success through active participation in internal and external client project teams
