  • Lead projects for various new initiatives, both internal and external, using project managing best practices and skills.

  • Work collaboratively with key business partners (e.g., Account Executives, Marketing, Global Product, Pricing, Legal, SMEs, regional chip teams), will be highly reliant on strong influence management skills and the ability to build and maintain internal and external relationships.
  • Build and enhance positive working relationships with internal and external stakeholders (e.g., acquirers, processors, vendors, merchants, third-party service providers, etc.).
  • Provide L3 testing SME support to acquirers, processors, vendors, merchants, third-party service providers, etc.
  • Communicate L3 testing updates internally and externally.
  • Write and maintain L3 testing related documentation.
