Executive VP and Chief Technical Officer, Innovation
The Innovation Software Engineer will work in the Innovation group. This person will develop and test prototype concepts that will range in scope and scale. The objective of the development effort is to validate the technical feasibility of new, innovative concepts. As part of the technical validation, the development efforts will also test and plan for global deployment and a scalable user base.
