Additionally, you have experience with Customer Data Platforms (CDPs), and are able to lead a team in building a journey orchestration platform for collecting, unifying, and connecting customer data with applications. You can build products and capabilities (e.g., for personalization, segmentation, data privacy management) that allow business and technical partners to easily integrate with the journey orchestration platform and help them use customer data to build remarkable solutions.
