  • Establish strategic product roadmaps and an agile delivery operational structure in partnership with Tech that is efficient, transparent, and flexible.
  • Manage a broad set of senior stakeholders across the enterprise who manage the downstream processes, technology, controls, and customer-facing experiences that depend on the capabilities and performance of Core platforms.


As a Product Manager you will work with technology architects, data scientists, service designers, process engineers and developers to translate human insights, downstream user feedback, and technology capabilities into scalable, resilient, and efficient consumer-centric services. You will develop technology solutions to help us better serve Card customers.

General areas of responsibility:
  • You will be involved in shaping and contributing to the overall customer experience by applying insights, moving from concepts to prototypes and prototypes to scalable solutions.

  • Leadership: You are able to get people of different disciplines to pull together in the same direction against an understood goal. You are also able to coach others and be a mentor in product development.
  • Open-minded: You have your own perspective and methodology. But this does not prevent you from trying new things. Ultimately you are curious and believe in continual learning and evolution.
  • Action-Oriented: You have an urgency to progress, you try things, and sometimes you fail. But you apply those learning to move forward
  • Fearless: Big, undefined problems don't frighten you. You can work at a tiny crack until you've broken open the whole nut

  • Ability to collaborate closely with designers and engineers to create platform products
  • Applying Agile development philosophy and practice
  • Passion for holistic experience design that incorporates usability and utility
  • Effective communication skills throughout the process: driving a project forward, evangelizing value, executive summaries
