Job Description

Don’t just work for a market leading global company. Help grow one. 

Member Get Member is American Express’s global acquisition referral programme that taps into the passion our Cardmembers have for the brand and turns it into an acquisition opportunity. Through MGM, consumers and small businesses can recommend their friends, family and colleagues – the programme engages our Cardmembers, allowing them to unlock true value for their friends with unique enriched offers, while earning rewards for themselves.


At the heart of our referral programme, is a personalised referral link, which is unique to each Cardmember. It is integrated into the Refer a Friend microsite, the American Express Mobile App and other Customer touchpoints, enabling Cardmembers to share the referral link seamlessly through a variety of options. MGM is the fastest growing card acquisition channel for American Express globally and will continue the growth trajectory in 2018, given the strong underlying economics, relative underpenetration of the Cardmember base  and significant appetite for investment.


This position will report into the Director, Member-get-Member within Enterprise Digital and Analytics (EDA) and is critical to MGM’s ambitions of accelerating growth by evolving the MGM API and taking ownership of channel development by integrating MGM into multiple internal and external channels such as Partner Platforms, Loyalty Platforms, Social Channels, etc.



  • Lead development of roadmap to integrate MGM with new channels
  • Provide thought leadership on evolution of the MGM API and streamlining of content management
  • Partner with Technology teams in an agile environment to translate business objectives and ensure product delivery per roadmap
  • Partner with digital acquisition leads across markets to support and ensure prioritization of MGM deployment
  • Define and develop user stories to support new product capabilities and attend agile planning ceremonies.
