You will learn and apply our internal accessibility procedures (based on WCAG 2.2) to digital experiences at all phases of web and app development, including discovery, design, engineering, testing and regression as an active participant with our product, technology, and design teams. You will use assistive technologies to test all experiences for accessibility gaps prior to them going live, sometimes collaborating with members of the accessibility team to do so.

You're a storyteller by nature, and you thrive on building relationships. You're a proactive agent of change with a bias toward action. You're skilled at influencing partners and working in a matrixed environment.

You'll be the master of your own destiny in an environment that has strong support for work-life balance. We'll support you along the way with robust onboarding, as well as personal and career development, to help you grow as a Senior Accessibility Consultant.
