The mission of the role is to provide high-level design solutions and support cross-disciplinary teams with product design.

  • Leverage recognized domain expertise, business acumen, and experience to influence decisions of executive business leadership, outsourced development partners, and industry standards groups.
  • Integrate suggestions, updates, and innovations into overall architecture and lead the platform architecture process across the business.


As a Product Architect, your qualifications should ideally be:
