From our headquarters in Boston, we operate on a global scale with some of the world’s largest companies as clients. As of today, this has taken our consultants on the ground in over 85 countries (and counting), including extensive work in Asia, Africa and Latin America.


    What makes us unique compared to traditional large management consulting firms is:

    1. our scientific approach to problem solving;
    2. our passion for complex projects that require creative minds; and
    3. our one-world mindset.

    We are hiring a Senior Business Analyst (SBA) for our consulting group. SBAs work closely with Canback leadership and with client leadership to evaluate business problems, assemble recommendations, and communicate information and ideas clearly throughout projects.

As we are a small firm, SBAs will be exposed to all aspects of our business and will likely travel extensively internationally.  The SBA is a client-facing role, working on projects under the direction of a Project Manager.
