Overview

Stax Inc. is expanding our talented team of consultants. We are seeking seasoned consultants with 5+ years experience who enjoy learning fast and finding new ways to solve the challenging and complex business issues. As a Senior Consultant, you’ll have a highly visible role on your team and your work will directly impact the team’s success.

 

We recognize you are driven by the opportunity to learn by doing. Senior Consultants directly interact with clients and are expected to take initiative, leading to increased responsibility. Working across a wide spectrum of industries on short-term engagements, you will constantly be learning something new. For Senior Consultants, Stax creates an environment where you will have enormous potential for client exposure and career progression.

 

Life at Stax is unique - our goal is to empower and challenge employees, while supporting a reasonable work/life balance. No question: you’ll work hard. However, unlike other firms where a “willingness to travel” means uprooting your life for weeks or months at a time, we don’t uphold the label “road warrior” as a badge of honor. Our efficient and focused approach creates shorter, less frequent trips driving greater value for and appreciation from our clients. As such, you’ll have more time for professional and personal development, allowing great people and teams to grow as well as get involved in our communities.

 

Our success stems from our unique ability to quickly diagnose an issue, develop clear fact-based answers and provide practical next steps. We tackle engagements by debating with facts and analysis. Our consultants are empowered to call it like they see it, rather than deliver answers they think clients want to hear. Our entire staff is intelligent, innovative and - most importantly - willing to roll up their sleeves.

 

If you’re willing to dive in, work with talented team members and drive impact from day one, Stax is the perfect environment for you.
