San Francisco, CA

Twitter is seeking a Senior Quality Program Manager who will own the end to end vendor quality program for Twitter Service.

Through effective project management and statistical analysis, you will help define, standardize and innovate the program’s strategy across multiple suppliers, locations and workflows. Although this is an individual contributor (IC) role, you will be expected to be a leader and mentor for others in the organization by facilitating communication across global stakeholders and contributing as a subject matter expert. The position is based in San Francisco, CA.


What You’ll Do:

  • Act as the primary DRI for the vendor quality programs across multiple suppliers and locations.
  • Ensure global alignment across internal and external stakeholders through proactive communication and facilitation of cross-functional projects.

  • Develop and execute a qualitative and quantitative strategy for improving QA, mitigating operational risk and proactively identifying trends.
  • Manage relationships with key vendor quality POC’s to ensure quality standards and contractual obligations are being met.
  • Utilize a learning management system to improve training practices and process certifications across multiple workflows.
  • Proactively use metrics, analytics and statistics (sampling, confidence intervals, margin of error) to make informed decisions and to create robust analyses.
  • Collaborate with vendor managers to identify opportunities to optimize QA and training costs.
  • Work directly with Vendor Operations to help set, prioritize and execute on team based OKR’s.
  • Drive several projects across cross-functional partners relating to benchmarking quality, identifying thematic gaps and areas of improvement, introducing industry best practices and improving existing processes.
  • Collaborate with operations and tooling/automations teams to develop quality and training tools to automate manual processes and reduce human error.
  • Speak for and collaborate directly with the support management team to help the team make key business decisions.


Who You Are:

  • Leadership: You are recognized as a trusted mentor and leader across the organization. While you will not necessarily manage people directly, you will be viewed as a subject matter expert within quality assurance.
  • Domain Expertise: You have advanced knowledge of quality assurance practices. This includes developing and standardizing QA framework, implementing strategic sampling and identifying areas of improvement across new and existing vendor engagements.
  • Analytical Capabilities: You have a strong background in data and metrics that enable you to make informed decisions on a day-to-day basis. You are able to build your own reports and dashboards and will use your findings to optimize vendor performance and validate numbers. Additionally, you use statistical techniques to improve accuracy and reduce risk.
  • Communication: Exceptional written and verbal communication skills and can be trusted to speak for and represent the global Vendor Operations team in most situations. You seamlessly present complex ideas and large project proposals to all levels of the business, including executives. You are proactive and navigate ambiguous situations with confidence and know the right situations in which to raise a red flag to your leadership team.
  • Problem solving: People will come to you with hard problems that they can’t solve so that you can guide and mentor them through complex solutions. You fearlessly seek out people across the business in order to learn new things and unblock barriers to success. You research possible outcomes and proactively make recommendations to your stakeholders. You understand how to prioritize across multiple backlogs and teams and how to negotiate up and across the business for the resources you and your team need.
  • Team Player: You are part of an organization that relies on a lot of mutual trust and respect to get stuff done. You’ll give and take feedback well, learn from your mistakes and operate with a growth mindset.
