Job Description

To achieve this mission, we have launched Agile product team based constructs that enable a truly cross-functional environment to continuously design, deliver and validate new functionality. We favor rapid, iterative design to “once and done” project work; all in a way that allows us to “plug and play” instead of depending on outdated technology builds.

Successful transformation at this scale requires diverse and talented people who are equipped with the right end-to-end knowledge, skills, passion about customers, and excitement about being at the forefront of change and innovation.

We are actively looking for the best talent to help us reach our One Chase North Star! Are you someone who thinks and puts the customer at the center of everything you do?

You will lead cross-functional teams comprising of product analysts, technologists, data scientists and analytics members. You are the sole person setting the priority, maximizing the value of the product and the work of the modeling and development team.

Your key objective as a change agent will be to work across the organization to engage key partners, establish interdependencies, gather feedback from business and establish a successful North Star.
