Company Overview

Bain & Company is one of the world's leading strategy consulting firms, where bold thinking, inspired people and a passion for results come together for extraordinary impact. Our digital expert teams with capabilities in design, innovation, product management and software development are a key aspect to achieve our mission. Together, we help our clients solve their toughest business problems and provide strategic advantage fueled by design, technology and analytics.


Our Lead Strategic Designers are emerging design leaders and the backbone of our strategic design capability. In this role you will work in an integrated team with strategy consultants, innovation experts, product managers, data scientists and software developers and use a human-centred design approach to transform customer insights into impactful business opportunities that drive substantial growth for our clients.

You will lead the full strategic design process hands on:

  • Lead qualitative research, market and trend analysis, and synthesize data into actionable insights and tangible artefacts (e.g. personas, customer journey maps, opportunity maps)
  • Facilitate co-ideation workshops and creative sessions
  • Envision and conceptualize new business ideas and services with game changing potential and bring them to life through creative storytelling
  • Iteratively design and refine solutions through low- to high-fidelity prototyping
  • Stand up experiments and pilots to validate/evaluate new products, services or businesses
  • Additionally, you will advocate for the power of design and collaborate closely with a variety of client stakeholders to ensure capability transfer.

    As a core member to the team you will also help to bring Bain to the next level as a business. This includes supporting the recruitment of new design talent, coaching junior team members, developing thought leadership and evangelizing our capabilities.

    We are looking for a highly collaborative, pragmatic, intelligent, ambitious individual with exceptional problem-solving and communication skills. You’re comfortable with ambiguity and change, and have a passion for making an impact in high stake business environments.

    What we offer

    Since day one, our formula for success has been simple—create a high-impact, supportive culture where immensely talented people are encouraged to be brilliant at what they do. We strive to make a difference and the accelerated learning process at Bain & Company is unparalleled:

  • Work with some of the best minds in business
  • Experience the steepest learning curve of your career
  • Attend comprehensive training to ensure you have what you need to succeed at Bain and beyond
  • Receive an unbeatable compensation package
  • Travel all around Europe
  • Unlike any other company in the world, Bain has been among the global top 4 in Glassdoor’s “Best Places to Work” list every single year for the past decade taking 1st place in 2019 and 2nd place in 2020.

    Diversity is key to our mission of building extraordinary teams that deliver unparalleled results. We recruit people with exceptional talent – and celebrate their differences. Our affinity groups (Women at Bain, Asians at Bain, Blacks at Bain, Latinos at Bain, BGLAD - The GLBTQ Network) are all active networks that offer coaching, mentoring and professional development.


    Success in this role will require:

  • Master’s degree in Design, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Strategy (or any other relevant field)
  • Several years (minimum 5, preferred 8+) of hands on experience in shaping digital products, services or new ventures (or equivalent experience)
  • Commercial acumen and understanding of business models
  • Fluency in working with state of the art prototyping tools (e.g. Sketch, Figma)
  • Excellent communication, presentation, facilitation and collaboration skills
  • A highly ambitious and entrepreneurial spirit with the ability to thrive in a hypothesis-driven, dynamic and fast-paced environment 
  • This role requires approximately 40-60% (European-wide) travelling to clients as needed. Your home base will be Copenhagen.
