    How do you work?

    Discover all the professional possibilities based on how you think and work.

  • People & Influence

    People & Influence

    These people like to catalyze projects and drive innovation by orchestrating activities and teams, and by identifying and bringing together the resources necessary to make things happen—working as the master chefs in the tech kitchen. They tend to have a service-orientation in that they enjoy working collaboratively with both external stakeholders (customers, clients, suppliers) and/or internal stakeholders (employees, department managers) to identify their needs and use-cases, and to help define projects that will have high impact. They are also like highly participative work that involves collegial teamwork, brainstorming, and co-development.

    Job position:

    Digital Strategist & Transformation Director
    Innovation Manager
    Technology Consultant
    Tech Development Lead
    Lead UX Consultant
    Cybersecurity & Digital Risk Director
  • Analyzing & Explaining

    Analyzing & Explaining

    These people tend to approach challenges in a structured way, breaking down problems into pieces and then analyzing these pieces by reasoning, researching and collecting facts or data. They want to know “why”, “how” and “for what”. They like working with complex concepts or large amounts of information -- trying to find patterns, and to reduce and simplify as a way to reach conclusions or recommendations. They also like developing frameworks, data representations, and other ways to package information – and those who enjoy quantitative work often try to measure and model as a way to understand, explain, and optimize.

    Job position:

    Data Scientist
    AI & Machine Learning Modeler
    Digital Business Analyst
    Operations & Performance Analytics Lead
    IoT Integration Lead
    Cybersecurity Threat & Response Analyst
  • Creating & Developing

    Creating & Developing

    These people tend to enjoy the process of building – starting with some basic ingredients – or even a blank slate – and working to bring something new and innovative to life. For example, they might enjoy developing an app, uncovering a cool pattern in complex data, or inventing a tech-based solution to a challenging business problem. They also like activities that involve turning their big ideas into tangible outputs that can be used by others or implemented within an organization.

    Job position:

    AI Developer
    Bot Developer
    Virtual/Augmented/Mixed Reality Developer
    UX/UI Programmer
    App Developer
