Deloitte VP Engineer - Customer Data Management in Lexington Park, Maryland
VP Engineer - Customer Data Management
In today's world, customers expect companies to know who they are and what they want. Customers want to have products, services or experiences that best suit their needs delivered to them with relationship continuity across physical and digital channels.
Customers are human first: driven by rapidly evolving needs and desires. The requirement for brands to make personal, meaningful connections on a human level has never been a more important part of brand success. Hux by Deloitte Digital delivers on those experiences in a way that allows companies to own the customer journey end to end, and deliver low-friction relationship continuity via any touch-point, with transformational efficiency.
Hux is the Human Experience Platform by Deloitte Digital. We help companies flexibly connect to any data sources that contain the signals that express what matters most to consumers, leverage advanced AI and machine learning technology to sense and respond to those needs at scale, connect systems to unlock insights, promote collaboration to drive acquisition, engagement and loyalty. Most importantly, we empower companies to connect with customers in personal, meaningful ways that respect them as individuals, not just customers at large.
Hux by Deloitte Digital gives companies the ability to build and leverage the connections - between people, systems, data and technologies - so they can deliver personalized, relevant multi-media experiences to customers at scale.
