High-quality data is critical to the success of our products and the newly created Data Management Office will be accountable for the company's data quality.

We seek a data steward with great attention to detail. We are looking for individuals who like solving problems and are interested in learning about our diverse business units. We seek a data steward who can learn processes quickly and is keen to identify opportunities for improvement.

• Collaborate with the Product Management team and business users to ensure that data related business requirements for protecting sensitive data are clearly defined, communicated, understood and followed

• Collaborate with product managers and product owners in business units to rationalize data needs and define authoritative sources of data
• Help embed a data-driven mindset across the organization (e.g., mentor and educate data users on the data management processes and policies)
• Collaborate with other data stewards for sharing/ learning best practices on data governance
