I am currently working in the HR department of Santa Barbara as an EDP Programmer/Analyst II and my primary role started in the department back in 2007 by migration of data and converting it to an Oracle platform for the new HRIS system.
I am considered the technical liaison in many of the projects that HR undertakes and Subject matter expert in various projects that I have been involved with. I do interface with many areas such as Benefits, Position Control, CEO office and Recruiting. I have been a great asset to them in implementing efficient and nimble solutions to make their processes more efficient and/or replacing it with more efficient means.
I formerly worked at Amgen Inc. and have been exposed to a variety of environments that have benefited me such as in the capital projects arena, where I worked as a Capital Construction processing manager and then worked as a Procurement Analyst in the procurement Department. During this period I was responsible in creating a lot of procedures and standardization efforts and was involved in a six-sigma initiative. I have created many analytical reports for management and valuations of vendors to be used.
I have further expanded my horizon and knowledge by pursuing an MBA in 2006 while working at Amgen. Amgen had made a decision to transition its operating system to SAP from the current JDE and I was one of the few in my department that were selected to help as a part of the ERP team. I also have many years of experience in data analysis and reporting using many data mining and reporting tools. I have a lot of experience in optimizations solutions for the workplace processes for optimum time and cost savings.
I think I can contribute to Varsity Tutors and its success.
