Deloitte New Product Strategist NBI_US in Boston, Massachusetts

New Product Strategist

Deloitte is looking for entrepreneurs with a passion for solving the world's most pressing Life Sciences and Health Care-related problems to join our Catalyst Innovation Hub.

Position summary

As an entrepreneur in our Catalyst Innovation Hub, you will be focused on identifying and incubating ideas that have the best opportunity to become high-growth technology businesses within Deloitte. You will be involved with the entire "pre-seed" business invention process: Market opportunity analysis, problem statement definition, customer research, solution design, prototyping & validation, business model design, and business case development for firm investment.

We are looking for creative, entrepreneurially minded, self-starters. Ideal candidates likely possess early-stage startup or product strategy experience and/or Founder experience. Top candidates will be customer-obsessed and have a unique blend of strategy, creativity, and technology experience. Life sciences or health care experience is preferred but not required - we value outside industry perspectives.

The Team: Deloitte Catalyst sits at the heart of Deloitte's product innovation ambitions. You'll work alongside other innovators who are passionate about building and launching new products and businesses. It is our mission to transform Deloitte from a traditional management consulting firm into a technology-based solutions provider that helps our clients disrupt their industries. The teams within our hubs are industry-aligned and we work with the broader consulting practice to uncover big problems for our clients and build new products and services to solve them. As part of this team, you will have unlimited access to the brain trust of Deloitte practitioners with expertise in nearly every industry and business topic. Hubs are made up of strategists, researchers, designers, and dev teams who work with Industry consulting leaders to further their innovation agendas in the marketplace and we bring an outside-in perspective on un-met client needs.

Activities: As a Catalyst entrepreneur, you and your team will own the incubation process end-to-end and will conduct customer discovery and market research required to validate product/market fit for your business ideas. Activities will include secondary market research, developing a deep understanding of users/buyers via primary research, concepting and prototyping, business model definition, financial analysis, feature definition and road mapping, leading build teams, and collaborating with internal/external SMEs.
