  • Plan the pipeline and make sure wherever possible, tech and design patterns are reused
  • Lead, organise, inspire and unblock designers, developers, data scientists and others within the multidisciplinary team with sharp analysis and well-communicated decisions
  • Consider, define and track the cost and benefits of products that are worked on to ensure that our benefits are properly tracked and realised
