On the Innovation Team of Accenture Digital, we assist companies from all branches of industry to ready themselves for the future: We work with our clients to develop innovations for tangible profits – on the basis of pioneering technologies and with a constant focus on the people we are developing solutions for. We don’t see any conflict between empathy and strategy. We work creatively and analytically. We love making complicated things simple. Same?
Your duties Your path will take you into a very diverse team of entrepreneurial thinkers who work out of various locations in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. Our common denominator: a motivation to meet challenges – with focus, dedication, and lots of fun. For us, innovation is a culture, not a method.
