  • Create and evolve the go-to-market strategy for Home Lending across public and secure channels

Agile Journey Team Responsibilities

  • Write stories/epics to capture desired user experience/capabilities and business value
  • Maintain and prioritize a product roadmap and backlog to ensure work focuses on those opportunities with maximum customer/business value and align with product strategy
  • Take on responsibility for day-to-day activities of an Agile team under the direction of the Experience owner
  • Drive discovery through user research, user testing and multivariate testing
  • Partner with User Experience leads/practitioners to employ user-centered design best practices in every-day Agile work
  • Collaborate with Digital Marketing, Data Science, Content Strategy and SEO experts to maximize use of digital capabilities as they are rolled out
  • Help monitor the health of the team and take ownership in enhancing the connection, collaboration and trust across the team.

Day to Day Accountability

  • Engage and manage vendors via existing, new or expanded contracts where appropriate.

Basic Qualifications
