There was no typical day in this position
I learned so much in this capacity at E*TRADE. I had the opportunity to develop my business acumen and project management skills. Some day to day work would incude my responsibilities:
Designed, established, coordinated and managed overall product direction features and project scope.
Developed business plans for products. Wrote and implemented product specifications and business requirements.
Translated customer/clients needs into new features and services.
Developed product strategy for online services.
Established processes for product release.
These skills allow me to have a better "big picture" in subsequent positions that I have held.
Management was great
Co-Workers were highly skilled and full of useful information and a pleasure to work with.
Hardest part of the job would include high stress, impossible deadlines that we all would manage to meet somehow, hours without sleep, parking in San Francisco, and trying to stay awake driving home from San Francisco.
The satisfaction of my achievements like:
- Managed SBC DSL Billing Project generating $768,000 revenue annually
- Implemented E*TRADE game project realizing $559,272 annual savings
- Successfully implemented numerous versions of Online Paperless Applications saving $180,700 a year
- Directed integration of newly acquired content provider (ClearStation) into E*TRADE Web Site
