Join our team

Welcome to Luminary Labs

Who we are

We’re a team of thinkers and doers who are energized by big, messy problems.

We have different backgrounds and come from different places — including organizations like McKinsey, L’Oréal, Goldman Sachs, Siegel+Gale, iCrossing, and Pentagram — but we all share a passion for working on problems that matter. We are strategists, analysts, designers, and editors who bring agility and flexibility to projects focused on stemming chronic disease, closing the skills gap, rethinking the future of work, supporting digital transformations, using data to make smart cities safer, developing sustainable business models, and making moonshot investments.

What we do

We help companies thrive in the face of change.

Our clients are “innovation mavericks” — leaders inside global corporations, nonprofits, and federal agencies who are tasked with helping their organizations adapt to the technological, economic, political, and social norms of the 21st century. We’re the strategy and innovation consultants they call when there’s no playbook for the problem they’re trying to solve.

We have an equal appreciation for strategy and execution. We offer our clients the upfront thinking that goes into careful strategy development, and can become partners in execution to ensure those strategies are implemented.

What it’s like to work here

Be part of a high-performing team and still have a life.

We believe that career choices are not binary; you can have a challenging and rewarding career while also living your life. Our clients appreciate that we bring the highest level of excellence to everything we do; staff appreciates that we are extraordinarily efficient so that you aren’t expected to be online later.
