The focus of the role is on developing Citi's newly launched business called Digital Consumer Payments (https://www.citigroup.com/citi/news/2019/190326a.htm). This is perhaps the most exciting project that TTS has embarked on and will be considered a totally new business line for Citi, allowing consumers to make digital payments to our institutional clients in a seamless way across all countries globally where TTS operates.

Digital Consumer Payments will allow Citi to offer companies who are selling online with gateway capabilities as well as abilities to offer their consumers the option to pay them all possible channels available to consumers. This range is wide and covers traditional channels such as cards and bank to bank transfers but also involves new clearing methods like request to pay or instant payments as well as wallet payments, cash alternative payment methods through fin-techs, and other global payment channels.

The project is complex and cuts across virtually all functions in TTS together with a heavy focus on integration with gateway providers, several acquirers around the world and other digital partners so this position will demand openness of mind, willingness to challenge and go against the norm, close attention to detail, a very disciplined and transparent approach to project management and most importantly, excellent communication and team building skills to manage multi-stakeholder, multi-region projects.
