We ensure these products and experiences meet clear user needs; align with the overall business vision for American Express; and adapt appropriately to the mobile channel.

We’re looking for a talented and passionate Product Analyst to join our Mobile Platforms team in Phoenix.

If you are interested in working on customer experience, mobile product development, and strategy for a market-leading app, we would love to hear from you.

The Product Analyst — Mobile Platforms will:

  • Assist in developing a product-level strategy and roadmap that aligns with American Express’ strategic objectives
  • Support the Product Operations & Native App Capabilities Product Manager in solving common mobile problems by developing components and capabilities that scale globally and across use cases
  • Evangelize internally for the needs of Amex mobile products, and help partner teams design scalable platforms and services that power Amex mobile experiences
  • Help measure the effectiveness and success of product platform solutions
  • Research and identify new platform capabilities by assessing the competitive landscape, user behavior, and internal Amex systems

Minimum Qualifications

Types of people we need:

  • Product owners — appreciate the difference between creating and iterating on a valuable product and completing a project, with experience managing or building digital products.
  • Technologists — understand (or have an aptitude to learn!) how the modern web works; how websites differ from mobile apps; how systems communicate with each other
  • Mobile and Fintech enthusiasts — excitement and knowledge about the mobile product space and our competitive environment
  • Collaborators — our role is largely partnership driven; working with capability owners and technology partners is vital
  • Technical writers — our team must convincingly communicate best practices and guidelines and clearly document Native Application Platform capabilities
  • Strategic thinkers — ability to balance both short- and long-term decision-making and execution; use short feedback cycles to produce excellent products at scale
  • Astute analysts — Amex mobile apps are used by millions of Card Members, around the globe, to interact with many Amex lines of business; therefore successful mobile platform capabilities will emerge only after large sets of current and future use cases are carefully boiled down to common needs
  • Teammates — we’re looking for an affable contributor to our strong team culture of cooperation, empathy, and a passion for excellent digital products
