Intersystem Testing Coordinator & Project Manager
As an employee at CenturyLink originally hired to manage and direct the Intersystem Testing (IST) group for xDSL solutions. This IST testing consisted of over 30 applications from order entry to billing, to provisioning, to activation, to monitoring of xDSL solutions. This responsibility included coordination of all systems involved in testing and deployment, negotiating with internal clients, and executing a flow through test of xDSL solutions. After performing this responsibility successfully with high standards for a year received a promotion and the opportunity to advance my skills further as a project manager for 3 applications that were new initiatives for the xDSL solutions. As a PM productively lead the activation teams to deploy over 20 releases in each year to accommodate the different need of our internal clients. This also included negotiating funding, tracking the budget, finalizing requirements, and participating in the development of the contracts with the third party vendors, like Telcordia. These projects have diverse workforces from working with CenturyLink internal clients in other states, to development team members across the country and world working with large teams in India.
