Real Time Marketing (RTM) is a key enabler to our vision of one-to-one marketing and personalization at scale. Our approach to RTM is grounded on rapid experimentation, leverages data and technology, and is driven by self-sufficient multi-functional teams working in an Agile setting.
You will be driving Home segment growth and achieving operational eﬃciencies by delivering relevant and timely content and experiences, orchestrated across all channels and devices, along the entire customer journey.

Creating briefs that specify the customer journey and specific levers to be pulled in specific tests..
Lead sprint planning sessions in which tests are selected for execution, daily working sessions via which the team will execute the tasks needed to launch tests, and sprint review sessions to identify and lead appropriate responses to root causes for deviations between initial test briefs and what is launched in-market.
Own sprint planning sessions - selecting which test(s) to execute next, builds test definition briefs, leads test kickoff meetings, facilitates working sessions for the team, and sees tests through execution and launch.
Conduct sprint review sessions to capture how much and why launched tests differ from what is documented in original test briefs.
Ensure that the overall in-market consumer experience is documented, and that test levers are well understood.
