Responsibilities include:

  • Creating a new test and learn programme and roadmap for the Global Web ‘Guest’ Experience team – in conjunction with the relevant Product Owners and Analytics teams
  • Understand vendor technology platforms leveraged at Amex and build relationships with these vendors and agencies to drive the Test and Learn programme
  • Working closely with Technologies, UX Design and Product Owners to support an agile approach
  • Developing good relationships with market contacts to create a test and learn culture and influence without authority
  • Consolidate and socialise Customer Optimisation best practice and learnings
  • Monitor digital trends and technologies to plan the next generation of T&L tools and inform testing strategy
  • Reviewing standard market reporting to spot opportunities for ongoing optimisations


This role may be subject to additional background verification checks.
