Our client work will throw a variety of challenges at you, ranging from analyzing the chemical backings of pharmaceutical drugs, to optimizing the global supply chains of consumer product companies, to helping banks turn fraud detection into improved consumer experiences.

You will be assigned to a client location and work as a member of a globally distributed Mu Sigma team, one that bridges the client location and our India center. You will be asked to:

Engage with clients to understand their business challenges

Gather client requirements and provide context to the offshore teams based out of Bangalore, India

Work alongside offshore teams to solve data-intensive problems using Mu Sigma’s analytical frameworks and tools

Present the results of the work to the client’s senior management, offering actionable insights and recommendations that lead to measurable business impact

Build relationships with clients, helping them improve their consumption of analytics to drive their business operations and decision-making

While other analytics firms operate on a project-to-project basis, we’re different. We operate problem-to-problem, helping our clients make better decisions in a world of muddy, inter-connected business challenges. In parallel, we also help our clients adopt a fundamentally new approach to decision making – a new art of problem solving. As a team member, you will be part of that client transformation.

At Mu Sigma you’ll hear the phrase “Learning over Knowing.” It’s one of our guiding principles, and we expect every Mu Sigma associate to demonstrate a passion for learning. In addition we look for:

A problem-solving mindset. You should have an analytical mind that would help you understand the client’s problems such that you are able to communicate the same in a lucid manner to your teammates in India and collaborate with them to solve the problem in the best possible manner. We use a ground-up, first principles approach that focuses on fundamentals.

A critical eye. We want someone who asks questions, always probing for “Why?” or “So what?” We value contrarian thinking

Interpersonal skills. The work primarily involves interacting with multiple stakeholders including clients. Clients have to like and respect you, even when you tell them they’re wrong.

Another guiding principle in Mu Sigma is placing a premium on interdisciplinary perspectives. This is practiced in how we approach our work and who we hire. To that end, we hire across all disciplines: Bachelors or Masters in Arts / Science / Business as long as you’re graduating December 2016 - May 2017.

Autonomy. We’ll encourage you to be an entrepreneur, pioneer, and problem solver with irreverence towards the status quo. You’ll participate in experiential learning environments, helping top global brands solve tough problems.

Mastery. We’ll invest in building your interdisciplinary skills in the white hot field of analytics and decision sciences. Engaging with and rotating across our cross-industry client base will broaden your perspectives even more.

Purpose. We’ll help you participate in something bigger than just you. That purpose being to create a new art of problem solving in our clients.

As with life, we’re filled with paradoxes. Our vibe is methodical, yet vibrant. We’re irreverent, yet humble. And we’re geeky, yet cool.

In the 15th century, Columbus set out for India seeking a key economic gateway in the spice trade. Fast forward to the 21st century, and you’ll find that India is much more than a gateway. The country has transformed into a rich source of talent, ideas, and innovation, and it’s our hub for innovation, scale, and automation.
So we established the Columbus Program as part of Mu Sigma University, bringing new hires to Bangalore for up to 9 months with the company. The curriculum combines immersive, workshop-based learning with on-the-job mentoring, and both educates new associates and inculcates them in the ways of Mu Sigma.
