In this role, you’ll work closely with your teammates to help design, build, and continuously improve experiences that guide our users to become, and remain, subscribers.  In addition to streamlining the meter and payment experiences, it may also include guidance to our users to take advantage of news features they may not have otherwise known. Due to the nature of the work, you will gain a broad exposure to the technology and products of the New York Times.  Depending on your experience level, there is room for responsibilities to expand to other parts of the tech stack as well as involvement in broader architectural decisions for the team as a whole.
