Let’s talk about Program Management!

Program Management is the process of overseeing a group of related projects to ensure they are completed on time and to the desired level of quality. PM helps to bring foster collaboration, and create something bigger and better than what could be achieved by working alone.

Yen Au

Hi there, I am passionate about solving customer issues, whether they are users, advertisers, or business owners. I have built experience in critical functions such as policy creation, training, vendor management, and quality assurance. They are the elements that make customer support great. I am interested in being a coach because I believe knowledge is only valuable when it is shared and passed on. I am here to listen to you first and work on a plan to achieve your goals when you need one. I am fluent in Vietnamese, and English. I can communicate well in Cantonese. My preferred pronouns are she/her/hers.

Hey there, I’m Johnny! 👋 I’ve previously PM’d at Apple, Tesla, and Con Edison but I’m currently on a career break so happy to talk over some boba! Despite being a recent 1st generation college graduate, job searching as a new grad/intern is tough so I’m happy to help where I can! Also love cycling, playing video games, and trying out new tofu soup and boba spots!
