You will carefully consider the requirements and balance those with the customers needs to design best-in-class decisioning strategies. You will write and groom user stories, establish business rules, frameworks and data architecture to support the design and configuration of decisioning logic algorithms. You will lead ongoing strategy enhancement and optimization efforts, craft A/B/C test plans, mentor teammates, and guide decision logic projects to completion. You will be responsible for evolving the backend decisioning logic framework which needs to integrate and execute seamlessly with a complex ecosystem, consisting of multiple technology stacks and applications. This framework will need to be scalable and future proof to accommodate changing business and technological needs. At Verizon, we currently use Pegas Customer Decisioning Hub (CDH) as our decisioning engine tool. Leveraging data to make informed decisions is at the center of everything we do.
