About Rightpoint

Rightpoint, a Genpact company (NYSE: G) is a global experience leader. Over 700 employees across 12 offices work with clients end-to-end, from defining and enabling vision, to ensuring ongoing market relevance.

Rightpoint has been recognized among the top customer experience consultancies in The Forrester Wave™: Customer Experience Strategy Consulting Practices, Q4 2020.

About the Role:

As a Lead Strategist, you will play an integral role in how teams’ approach and solve a range of complex business challenges – challenges such as helping companies launch new product ventures, helping a CIO to leverage their digital assets more effectively, improving the effectiveness of customer sales teams, and breaking down why a retail app might have a customer engagement problem.

Always working closely with other Rightpoint SMEs’ (including research, analytics, service design, UX/EX and product development), you will guide solutions and bring a focus on projects towards meeting client business growth goals and outcomes in a measurable way.

What You’ll Be Doing and the Impact You’ll Make:

  • Work hands-on within a project team and closely with clients to gather market, customer, and employee experience insights that can be combined and integrated into the broader solution
  • Applying strong consultative skills, articulate the overarching vision and story to support executive buy-in for recommended solutions, and integrating workstreams across design, technology and analytics
  • Conduct research and analytics (e.g. stakeholder interviews, process documentation, walkthroughs) to understand the client’s strategy, market environment, and organizational capabilities
  • Design and conduct quantitative analysis and modeling. Identify key performance indicators and metrics to measure success, and support recommendations and solutions
  • Advocate and have empathy for the people whose lives the product or service will affect, inclusive of all actors in the ecosystem
  • Design and present materials for client sessions, including (digitally) facilitating meetings and workshops
  • Support the growth of the Practice by refining or developing new processes, methodologies and industry thought leadership

What We’d Love to See:

  • 5+ years relevant consulting or agency experience. General experience shaping and executing complex, multi-disciplinary projects will also be considered
  • Proven track record of delivering clear, detailed and high-quality solutions to business leaders
  • Excellent presentation (written/verbal) and facilitation skills
  • Experience with Design Thinking methodology(s)
  • Strong analytical skills including quantitative approaches such as ROI modeling and prioritization frameworks
  • Experience with transformation initiatives that involve process and technology implementation
  • Demonstrated collaboration skills
  • Bachelor’s Degree

  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion: We care about making Rightpoint a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization to bring about meaningful and measurable changes to representation, team member experience, and client engagement. Here's how:
  • Employee Resource Groups (ERG): Our ERGs are created and run by team members who share a common community, identity, or allyship. Right now, our ERGs include Parents, Pride, POC, and Womxn. These groups play a vital role in contributing to Rightpoint’s inclusive environment where all are valued and empowered to succeed.
  • Partnerships: Out-in-Tech, POINT Foundation, WomenHack, Girls Inc., and more!
  • Mentorship Program


  • Our teams are working 100% remote for the foreseeable future, but typically our teams travel as needed and operate flexibly from home, or at Rightpoint offices in: Atlanta; Boston; Chicago HQ; Dallas; Denver; Detroit; Jaipur; London; Los Angeles; New York; Oakland; or Sydney. Our future vision for working includes a range of hybrid models that support our employee needs.
  • When business travel resumes, wherever possible, the actual travel, especially air travel will be limited to what is required – however, most assignments require some travel for user research, client meetings and workshops – mostly on-site at client’s places of work. Our global client base can lead us to consulting engagements that include international stakeholders and field research.
