You’ll do more than
the expected. You’ll do the unexpected.

At American
Express we place an enormous emphasis on users and usability. We sit at the
intersection of commerce and experiences and are rare in our business model
where we are one of only a few companies in the world that lead a user's end to
end commerce experience.

With our mix
of assets like rewards, benefits, members only perks, we are re-imagining how
commerce and experiences converge in a more modern, digital and connected
world. As we change the way merchants and their consumers interact with each
other, we are looking for talented leaders to define and execute against a very
bold vision.

You'll work
among high performing engineering, design and product teams. Among some of the
traits we are looking for: deep technical knowledge, set technical goals,
contribute to product strategy, stubbornness against settling, bold
decision-making, drive architecture decisions, and design internet-scale
solutions.

*

Know what it
takes to launch products regularly.

*

Own your own
time, and work well both independently and as part of a team.

*

Launch,
iterate and make a difference. Provide front-end coding expertise and be ready
to make our products better for our users.

Your
performance is measured by the impact of the quality and engineering of the
products you launch and by your ability to be a part of a high-performing
multi-functional team that includes Product, Engineering, Design, Data,
Finance, Business Development, and Operations.
