Join us as we take Microsoft Teams, our fast-growing collaboration product to the next level.
We are looking for a passionate product leader to define and deliver new ways to connect people, improve communication, and facilitate collaboration across a wide range of business applications and corporate cultures.
Teams is a hub for collaboration and communication. Our extensibility model allows for 1st, 3rd, and Line of Business apps to be integrated inside of Teams, allowing end users to use all of the apps they need in a single, cohesive experience. The apps core team is at the heart of building out this model to ensure that users have a rich in-client experience, while giving IT administrators the right management controls to customize that experiences.
We're looking for a talented Program Manager 2 to continue building on the momentum of the Apps Core team. In this role, you'll own and define how organizations can customize the apps they want their users to leverage, ensuring that they can customize Teams to fit their organizational needs. You'll have ample opportunities to work closely with customers, partners, developers, and other stakeholders to expose and enable new services and scenarios.
What is working on Microsoft Teams like? We're a fast-moving environment that lets us explore, iterate, and deliver value to customers. We share an immense passion for the customer and user experiences that surprise and delight the people that use them, and there are numerous opportunities to present ideas and work directly with executives and customers to collect feedback that directly impacts the product. While we innovate and move at a fast pace, we're also a team that likes to have fun, and we build that attitude into our product. Our culture is open, respectful, and empowering - we believe that listening to all voices is key to the success of our product and our team.
