IDEO is seeking a strategic leader who has created and implemented organization-wide solutions to foster growth and innovation. This role requires a track record of putting prevailing theories related to organizational change and design into practice, a passion and aptitude for stewarding leaders through transformation journeys, and the willingness to push the edge of the craft of organizational design at IDEO.
You will lead and guide IDEO’s interdisciplinary project teams to help our clients achieve bold and meaningful change by testing and evolving strategies and solutions that build creative capabilities within an organization. You will help clients and teams navigate ambiguity, adapt with agility, and unlock meaningful progress towards their goals touching all stages of client relationships — from finding and establishing new relationships, to guiding project teams towards content excellence, to shaping and scoping subsequent work.
We believe that sustainable organizational transformation happens when people feel part of the process — more movement than mandate — and above all else, we need you to roll up your sleeves and inspire action throughout our clients’ iterative change journeys.

It’s a place where you can solve diverse, complex challenges for our clients or the organization, alongside thoughtful, intelligent individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. We work hard, but we also intentionally craft moments that allow our community to pause, create, and connect. We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work, respect the need for work-life balance, and allow for autonomy in the design process and your career.
