Senior Manager, Card Partnerships Rewards & Loyalty Marketing Team

We’re looking for an experienced marketing strategist to take on a key leadership role within the Lifecycle Marketing team of Capital One’s rapidly growing Card Partnerships business.  This Senior Manager role will report to the head of the Lifecycle Marketing Team and get the opportunity to work on several of the most admired brands in the world.  For example, our current partner portfolio includes brands like Neiman Marcus, Bass Pro Shops, and Williams Sonoma.

This role is at the center of our rapidly growing portfolio of client/partner card programs and will establish a new center of excellence responsible for customer rewards marketing and developing cardholder loyalty benefits.  Responsibilities include:

  • Developing marketing strategies that leverage rewards earn rates, balances, and milestones to spur active card use and purchase volume.

  • Partnering with rewards platform technical teams to ensure underlying capabilities are evolving to meet the changing needs of the marketing team and our clients/partners.

  • Developing unique, buzz-worthy cardholder experiences for VIP cardholders (culinary, travel, and/or entertainment benefits).

  • Collaborating with the corporate sponsorships team to extend the value of Capital One sponsored properties to Partnerships cardholders.

  • Creating a launch roadmap for innovative, loyalty driving benefits to Partnerships cardholders:  identify opportunities for added benefits or discounts, manage outreach to prospective vendors, oversee deal negotiation, and guide execution.

This Senior Manager must possess an entrepreneurial mindset, excellent communication skills, and the resilience needed to drive “never been done before” innovation within a matrixed organization.  This leader will define and implement the long-term team growth plan for Rewards & Loyalty Marketing Team.

Note: This role will require ~10-20% travel post pandemic to client/partner worksites for project working sessions and presentations.

  • Ensure on-time, on-budget deliverables. Identify any potential impediments to either autonomously problem solve, or escalate to senior leaders for help as necessary.
