You will leverage Science and Tools produced by the Device Economics team such as conjoint demand models to produce these recommendations. As part of the stakeholder-facing arm of the team, you will own relationships with decision makers to help improve the customer experience by making the decisions that impact them more data and Science-driven. In parallel, you will work with Scientists, Economists, Product Managers, and Software Developers to provide meaningful feedback about stakeholder problems to inform business solutions and increase the velocity, quality, and scope behind our recommendations.
