Originating on a "Friends" episode, Rachel incorrectly names Chandler's data processing job as a "transponster". Transponster is now commonly used to describe an office job not clearly defined as one role/responsibility, but a combination of data entry and analysis. This sort of role is difficult for the employee to describe to friends or family, often sounding boring, confusing or both to those outside the office environment.
Working in the revenue department of a hotel, the e-commerce specialist is often found performing a number of tasks outside of "e-commerce". These tasks can include forecasting, reporting, data entry and analysis, along with a monotony of other day-to-day tasks. Not easily defined, she is commonly referred to as a "transponster" by friends and coworkers.
