Competitive business today is all about making intelligent, informed decisions. As a consultant within EY Parthenon you will help to make that happen. EY Parthenon is a leading advisory organization focused on strategy consulting. We are committed to combining our unconventional thinking with our clients’ smarts to deliver actionable strategies. The Software Strategy Group (SSG) is a specialized software advisory practice within EY Parthenon serving private equity and corporate clients from diligence through to strategy and execution.

The opportunity

SSG provides investment and acquisition guidance (including commercial, product, and technology diligence), as well as strategy and value creation services to companies and investors in the software economy. EY Parthenon SSG teams have completed hundreds of successful projects and provide a unique capability to help companies make critical decisions and complete successful transactions.

Our SSG practice is working as a unified virtual team across Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Europe (as well as our US practice). You’ll have a great opportunity to help us to continue to build on the already strong team in an entrepreneurial environment.

Your key responsibilities

Our Senior Consultants/Managers are responsible for leading workstreams and engagements, translating client needs into project tasks, deliverables, and lasting impact. They manage day-to-day problem solving, lead analytical activities, and serve as key liaisons among consulting team members and our clients.

As a Senior Consultant/Manager you will lead teams through a variety of client issues, ranging from diligence to strategy assignments. You will manage several workstreams and motivate teams with diverse skills and backgrounds. Our team members are our greatest asset, so you will also have a great responsibility for developing and mentoring junior team members.

Example diligence projects

  • Product and technology diligence SSG provides market-leading product and technology diligence of companies in the Software Economy. This entails an ‘inside-out’ assessment of product capabilities, product road maps, software architecture, technical debt, and both the organization and processes associated with a software organization.

  • Integrated diligence EY Parthenon teams combine product and technology diligence with leading commercial due diligence ‘outside-in’ capabilities. We provide clients with a cohesive view of their target investment from both a market and an operational perspective.

Example strategy projects

  • Software development effectiveness EY Parthenon teams assess a company’s software development organization for capacity, talent and process. The team provides actionable recommendations to improve productivity, timeliness, predictability, quality and overall alignment with the corporate strategy.

  • Technology strategy and road map By evaluating a clients’ technology road map and potential alternatives, as well as assessing cost, risk and alignment with strategic objectives, we help companies identify and form a suitable technology strategy and architecture road map — sometimes building on internal efforts and sometimes on brand-new ideas.

  • Product strategy and road map EY Parthenon teams analyze a company’s product road map and provide recommendations for improvement in product strategy and develop a road map based on market and competitive research, team capabilities, development cost and risk and technology underpinnings.

To qualify for the role you must have

  • A Master’s degree with outstanding academic performance and several years of practical software-related work experience (strategy consulting work experience is a plus)

  • Experience managing business strategy and/or M&A strategic diligence projects in complex environments

  • Strong analytical ability in order to draw conclusions and triangulate from large amounts of unstructured information types and sources
