You will participate in design thinking lab sessions with Product Owners, startups, and clients.


You will research and train on new technologies and some of the most important technology platforms in the market today, sharing back your insights with DSpace teams as a subject matter expert and providing input for future projects. You will also have the opportunity to support the presentation of digital prototypes in client engagements and make contributions to Deloitte’s global technology knowledge base.


You are an entrepreneurial-minded software developer who works collaboratively with stakeholders to create digital solutions that are engaging, inspiring, and differential. You are nimble minded and naturally curious. You are comfortable juggling responsibilities and pivoting a team based on feedback. You are passionate about your work and the accomplishments of your team. If this sounds like you, read on!
