Title: Program Manager

Duration: 11 Month Contract

Location: Sunnyvale, CA

 

Project Overview:

Geo expansion from a sku production perspective is a time consuming, manual process which often results in errors and revenue loss and places undue burden on many different organizations. Spotting errors requires BPs check thousands of skus one by one in a trix, while correcting errors is an entirely separate, time-consuming process for GeoExpansion TPM and service teams.

This inefficient, manual process has resulted in significant errors. The billing team declared a reliability reset partly because we launched the Santiago region with 80% of the compute skus inactive, resulting in 30 days of revenue loss before this was noticed. Additionally, in the most recent launches we found that over half of the skus were wrong – for Madrid 56% were wrong (625 out of 1115), for Dallas 61% were wrong (670 out of 1092).

We are asking for vendor support immediately as the rate of regional expansion must continue at pace for the organization to be competitive. Already we have an aggressive schedule with more planned from here.

We urgently need to 1) reduce the manual toil + risk of human error and 2) enable better tools and processes. We are thus asking for 2 vendors to accomplish these tasks.
