Principal Process Manager, Digital Accessibility

The Digital Accessibility Team’s mission is to establish digital accessibility as a fundamental part of the way we do business by empowering others to prioritize and deliver inclusive experiences (and have fun while doing it). We are looking for critical thinkers who are ready to aggressively challenge conventional approaches to software design, development, delivery, and maintenance. If searching for better ways to manage accessibility risks throughout the SDLC while partnering with a broad stakeholder group from ideation to market sounds exciting, we want to talk with you.

Have a passion for human centered design with a natural empathy for consumers with disabilities

Performing manual and automated testing of all applicable digital properties against accessibility requirements

Leveraging prior experience to constantly evaluate and recommend improvements to the accessibility processes and the suite of tools and training materials

You will play a major role in our ongoing enterprise program delivery as well as pre-release integration, production monitoring, and self-service imperatives.
