Elaine's Story

"RX embraces data to bring business values and customer satisfaction which is really delightful."

I'm a Global Product Owner for Matchmaking within RX Digital team. The role provides me with great opportunities to contribute to ideas and build our robust recommendation engine to deliver high quality matches to our customers.

I am most satisfied to know that our matches help customers to experience the shows better and lead them to build long lasting business relationships. 

In addition, I have good exposure to partners, product managers and data scientists from the RELX Group of companies where we can share knowledge, experience and results from projects. 

RX Digital is a friendly and supportive place to work - we value team work, diversity and career growth.

"It has been really interesting working in an organisation undergoing digital transformation."

A key benefit of joining a project that started from scratch is that each individual is able to help define the ways of work and the product direction.

I have both personally and professionally learned a lot about best practices in high quality enterprise software delivery, from both product management and tech perspectives.

The majority of the team sits in Richmond, with some of our development activities now supported out of Chennai as well.

We’re focused on creating a highly skilled and diverse workforce across a number of factors, including gender, age and nationality. For example, the number of women in our department has grown by 20% in the past two years.
