Managers provide oversight and ensure the successful delivery of engagements. They are expected to serve in a leadership and mentor role to all other consulting team members at DayBlink.

Our story:

Founded in 2013 with the goal of approaching consulting in a new and nimble manner, DayBlink was created to stand apart from competitors. We work differently through a hybrid model, which includes consulting, venture capital, and philanthropic service.  With this design, we encourage our team to approach problem solving with an entrepreneurial mindset to further enhance the core problem solving and critical thinking found in traditional consulting models.

As a small business, each member of the firm has a hand in fortifying the organization with his or her individual perspective and strengths, and the leaders of that charge are our Managers.  They tackle complex challenges inside and outside of the client engagement, lead and mentor junior staff, and continuously build a collaborative and inclusive work environment.

We are currently looking to add Managers to our team who are eager to build on their experience in management consulting with the freedom to unleash entrepreneurial ideas and solutions for our clients.

You are a leader who advocates for both your clients and colleagues.
