Integrating strategy, operations, and delivery
As the product owner for one of the credit card rewards redemption teams at Discover, Stephanie Kurensky loves that the role of product owner enables her to wear multiple “hats” and that each day is always different. The role offers her a great combination of strategy, operations, and delivery which keeps work exciting.
In her role as a product owner, Stephanie helps her team manage the end-to-end experiences for the gift card and charity redemption options at Discover. Recently, her team launched gift card and e-certificate options for multiple high-profile companies that credit card customers can redeem for with their Cashback Bonus.
I landed in a Product Owner role after rotating through a few other similar roles at Discover. I love that being a Product Owner allows me to wear multiple “hats” and that each day is always different. It’s a great combination of strategy, operations, and delivery.
Stephanie enjoys working at Discover, both for its commitment to customers—and to employees. “Discover truly cares about our customers and is dedicated to enhancing our products and experiences in ways that will benefit our customers and help them achieve a brighter financial future. Discover also cares about each and every employee and it shows through our benefits (great PTO), work life balance, and more. The people and the culture are amazing,” says Stephanie.
