  • Successfully persuade decision makers at all levels of the organization to take aligned action on research findings – inspire them and help them internalize opportunities to delight customers and differentiate our service.
  • Translate insights into measurable customer experience outcomes aligned to business goals.
  • Work with design, product management, engineering, and marketing, partners to develop innovative end-to-end solutions that address top outcomes, and iteratively design and test these solutions until outcomes are achieved or hypotheses are proven wrong.

  • Experience in the utilization of behavioral data and the design and analysis of A-B tests a plus.
