The Role:

We are seeking a dynamic individual contributor for our Program Management team. In this role, you will be responsible for delivering features to drive business success and industry leading developer experiences to help drive usage growth of our platform.

You: We all bring something different to the table, and no doubt you do too. With that in mind, we are looking for diversity of backgrounds to build a well-rounded and flexible team that can execute incredibly well now and evolve for the future.


  • Technical experience – API Design, Authentication, Authorization.
  • Leadership – You need to be expert at leading cross-functional teams on complex projects. To quote our CEO Satya… great leaders provide energy, clarity & results.
  • Energy – Bring it! Microsoft moves fast, and the cloud industry moves even faster. We’re looking for passionate, motivated people who inject energy and a sense of urgency into the projects and teams they work on.
  • Clarity – Clarity is perhaps our most important value add. New is always hard and comes with a long list of questions. Our job is to align everyone on the same plan and keep them there.
  • Results – We’re looking for doers… people who consistently get stuff done. How do we measure success? Deliver the right infrastructure at the right time in the right place at the right cost and with minimal surprises. That’s a fantastic result!
  • Collaborator – Partnering with others is at the heart of this role, so top-notch collaboration skills are essential. Great collaborators aren’t just easy to work with – they also raise tough questions, challenge others as necessary and negotiate win/win solutions.
  • Presence – Can you build relationships and influence people… from execs to individuals, across business and technical disciplines? Are you equally deft at leading cross-functional meetings and building rapport in 1:1 conversations?
  • Framer – Providing effective structure to solve complex problems, organize teams and communicate to stakeholders. Excellent framing rallies people and brings clarity.
  • Learner – Working on a fast-paced industry requires an ability and appetite to learn quickly… and to keep learning. In short, we are looking for people with growth mindsets.
  • Teammate – We seek amazing teammates. People who help each other, solve problems together, motivate others, have fun and apply the term “team” at the broadest level – irrespective of organizational lines.
  • Experience – Product planning, engineering, cloud services, operations, partner management, data analytics and developer platform experiences are all beneficial for this role and our team. The more of these you have, the better.


  • Bachelor degree in CS, EE or equivalent
  • 2+ years experience in product or project management
  • Coding abilities in C#, C++ or Java
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills with excellent interpersonal communication and collaboration skills
