Title:  Head of Web - Tangerine

 

Requisition ID: 71853

Tangerine is Canada’s leading direct bank. We offer flexible and accessible banking options, innovative products, and award-winning Client service. The reason why Tangerine employees come to work each day is to help Canadians live better lives. We focus on making a difference in our communities, and that includes our own internal community. It’s important to us that our employees feel empowered and enthusiastic about belonging to our Orange culture.

 

 

ROLE Purpose:

 

Tangerine is looking for a motivated and strategically-minded Head of Web to oversee and drive the development of our next generation banking experience for tangerine.ca.

 

Reporting to the VP of Digital + Innovation, you’ll lead a team of Digital Product Owners who will work with key stakeholders across the bank to gather, understand and prioritize Epics for new or existing digital products, and then communicate these to the agile delivery and development teams in a way which is clearly and easily understood. You’ll take responsibility for defining a ‘vision’ for the digital product that is Web and ensure that every member of the team keeps that vision clearly in mind as development progresses. You will own the digital product roadmap and outcomes for tangerine.ca, using your strategic insight, analytics and feedback from various sources to iteratively evolve features according to user and Client need.  You will work to optimize tangerine.ca to optimize outcomes around key strategic KPI’s.

 

The Head of Web acts as a bridge between various areas of the business and our development teams, keeping the business abreast of the channel status and presenting output on the one hand whilst also working to get answers to any questions the team might have, clarify priorities, or otherwise solve daily problems. Day by day you’ll work in close collaboration with Digital Product Owners, developers, UX and product designers, Client and product strategists, solutions architects, QA engineers and other experts to deliver high-quality software which is a pleasure to use.  You’ll work closely with the Head of Mobile + Innovation and the Head of Digital Service to develop and deliver a cohesive digital experience for Tangerine Customers.

 

Although we value self-organizing teams, the Head of Web will often find their natural leadership skills called upon as they take responsibility for ensuring that software is delivered on time, on budget - and in a way, that meets the business expectations.
