About the Team
PwC work with some of the largest UK and international organisations. As these organisations are collecting and using more data than ever before, the use of technology plays an integral role in driving their business and serving their customers. Working in a team of more than 65 technologists spread across the UK, we design, build and deliver solutions using a number of cutting edge tools to improve our client's businesses and solve commercial challenges.
We look to harness workflow and case management systems, design process automation mechanisms (which include artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning) to assist our clients.
