  • Support innovation and continuous improvement initiatives that will positively improve the user experience and/or team's performance
  • Gain a deep understanding of customer experience, identify and fill product gaps and generate new ideas that grow market share, improve customer experience and drive growth
  • Work closely with engineering teams to deliver with quick time-to-market and optimal resources
