Position Overview

Exact Science's Customer Experience (CX) team is responsible for defining, driving, and delivering innovative, immersive, memorable customer-centric journeys for all our customers, across all channels (digital and physical). These journeys are grouped by Customer Types (e.g., Patient, Provider) and further categorized into a set of Value Streams (e.g., Onboarding, Motivate & Complete Screening, Result & Follow-up). Each Value Stream has a set of specific, measurable Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) that the overall team is accountable to fulfill.

This position is responsible for defining the roadmap and driving delivery of 1-2 journeys within a given Experience.
