Job Description
The Emerging Technology (ET) group collaborates across all geographies, verticals, and sectors to investigate, educate, define, and prototype new emerging technologies. Our mission is to help PwC and our clients understand how to leverage emerging technologies to improve their business. We do not invent, we research, build, assemble, test, and share the knowledge we gain to have an impact on our clients.

Our team is comprised of 3 groups: Research, ET Lab, and Execution. Our Research team investigates emerging technologies, monitors trends, and identifies how these disruptors could impact our clients and industries. Our ET Lab builds and prototypes new technologies to demonstrate the potential of emerging technologies. Our Execution team partners with client delivery teams to support their efforts when using or promoting emerging technologies for their clients.

We share our findings via thought leadership, demos, training, and other methods to support our consultants and clients.

The Emerging Technology Lab is a group of technologists with expertise in product development, rapid prototyping, and user experience design. We help our clients understand how emerging technologies can improve their business.

We partner with client delivery teams across sectors, verticals, and competencies to develop functional prototypes that demonstrate the potential of emerging technologies.
