Job Description

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a rapidly growing business at Microsoft and is considered one of the leaders in Software as a Service in the world of business applications. Dynamics 365 provides the best showcase for innovations across Microsoft such as Machine Learning, Augmented Reality, Predictive Analytics and end-to-end Digital Transformation for businesses.

Are you looking to build Software as a Service (SaaS) applications to enable our business customers to undertake their journeys of digital transformation with the Dynamics 365 Service Cloud? Our team delivers business applications for Customer Service and Field Service. We are building the next generation of our applications running on Azure that pull together Dynamics 365, Office 365 and many Microsoft cloud services to deliver high value, complete, and predictive application scenarios across all devices and form factors. We are focused on supporting our partners and customers from pre-sales to post-sales implementation success. We program manage and create the content and assets that our sales people need to tell compelling and relevant stories, the training and documentation details needed for our partners to successfully implement our applications for customers and for our technical support teams who answer the call when our partners and customers are stuck.

If you are passionate about innovative software solutions, partner and customer success, enjoy telling stories, creating content, and project managing content creation and distribution, this is the role for you. Our team is building readiness for customer care applications from the ground up starting with creating or ensuring the right content is created and available through existing channels including our websites, blogs, through email, in GitHub, and any other place customers and partners expect to find it. With a solid foundation of comprehensive content for implementors and support teams, integrators, and end-users, we also have the opportunity to innovate on how we develop and share the content with our internal teams, customer and partner communities including through our existing marketing automation channels, new social communities, in product, or any other way that intelligently surfaces readiness content at the right time to the right audience. And of course, measure the impact of the content we're creating to do more of what's helping drive satisfaction and success and less of what's irrelevant and goes unused. Our goal is to ensure the success and satisfaction of every customer and partner with the sale, implementation, and support of our customer care applications through great readiness content.

* Entry level, BA/BS or appropriate working history in technical writing, PM, or technical sales, software marketing, solution selling, or solution architecture.
* Have great writing, storytelling and communications skills
* Have great organization, time management, focus, and project management skills
* Enjoy helping internal teams, customers, partners, and developers be successful with our products
