  • Address complicated challenges as they arise, with foresight which anticipates and mitigates future issues and/or adverse impacts.

  • Influence and/or make space for others’ voices across teams with shared objectives to align resources and direction for outcomes in the best interest of Affinipay, and/or users (such as: enterprise, smb, global users, marginalized users).
  • Formally or informally lead and mentor talent to ensure diverse and representative perspectives are present.
  • Align goals and objectives to the larger product or program initiative for multiple adjacent design efforts.
