One of the biggest and best public broadcasting companies in all this world is seeking a seriously gifted systems thinker to help it modernize and optimize its membership data practices.

You’ll place yourself between the top-notch design team and the top-notch tech team, and you’ll apply your familiarity with ecommerce best practices to the puzzle of how to build out a reliable, intuitive system to capture membership data, payment status and donation history in order to facilitate searches, create and track recurring payments and the like. You’ll also be laying the underlying tech groundwork for adopting the latest and greatest payment methods, the implementation of which is an important goal for the company.
You know this, or you’d have already stopped reading, but let’s state it anyway: A crucial part of the work will involve data hygiene, making sure that aliases and multiple addresses are linked to a single (correct) account. You’ll also strive to create UX and systems that map to very straightforward processes, so that users can understand them and intuit what they can do with them.
