As an operational hub, the Distribution team interacts with Stanford departments, professors, administrative staff, and students, often operating under strict deadlines.
While maintaining the existing operational Distribution processes, the manager will develop a long-term plan for the evolution of Distribution processes, with emphasis on digitization of paper-based processes such as exams and homework assignments.
