About the Role

  • Collaborate closely with the Global Affairs and GRC teams to ensure a seamless stakeholder experience.

  • Use your expertise in programming with Python and Javascript.

You’ll thrive in this role if you:

  • Built and/or delivered prototypes on top of our API platform.

  • Led complex technical projects and programs with many stakeholders.

  • Can proactively identify opportunities for maximizing our stakeholder value through leveraging the OpenAI API.
