Thought Machine’s mission is bold – to properly and permanently rid the world’s banks of legacy technology. To achieve this, we have developed the foundations of modern banking and built core and payments technology which runs natively in the cloud. What we are attempting is hard and means we need great people working together to build great technology.
We have grown rapidly in the past few years – growing our team to more than 550 individuals across offices in London, New York, Singapore and Sydney. We have raised more than $500m in funding and are now valued at $2.7bn. Our investors include Molten Ventures, Eurazeo, Intesa Sanpaolo, Temasek, Nyca Partners, JPMorgan Chase, Standard Chartered, and more. 
We have created a culture enabling our team to produce the best work in the industry, ensuring we have fun along the way. We're regularly cited as having a fantastic workplace culture and have been recognised by Sifted magazine as having one of the highest Glassdoor ratings for a UK fintech company and the most generous employee share package in the industry. We've been named AltFi's B2B Fintech of the Year, placed in the FinTech50, and named one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies by the Financial Times in 2023.
We want to establish and build our Consulting practice across our major EMEA, APAC and AMER hubs. The successful candidate will be responsible for setting up, leading & driving the direction and outcomes of the consulting practice, aligned with the company's strategic roadmap. 
As the Global Consulting Lead, you will regularly engage with diverse stakeholder groups, including executives of large enterprises, fintech founders and a cross-functional and geographically dispersed team. A successful Consulting Lead utilises their relationship management skills and technical credibility to communicate effectively at all levels within the organisation and become a trusted advisor to our clients.
