We are a tight-knit team of customer centric, energetic, data-driven product managers. We continually strive to learn the needs of different developers, build solutions that make sense for our developer customers and Microsoft, and create products that are delightful to use.

    We are looking for an experienced product management leader to lead a team that is focused on building services that used by dev teams for cloud-native apps and development in the cloud. Today these services include first party services such as Azure App Configuration, Azure Dev Spaces, and new services for building and testing cloud-native apps.

    • Growth hacking usage of existing services by improving acquisition and conversion
    • Building new capabilities in existing services for new scenarios
    • Identifying key partnership opportunities and executing on them
    • Managing product positioning, competitive differentiation and pricing
    • Defining new services through customer development focused on developers leveraging the cloud for their apps and dev workflows
    This is a leadership role requiring strong analytical and communication skills, great people management abilities, and the ability to drive strategic results through well-planned execution. The role involves continuous interaction with customers, analysts, and executive leadership. A strong background in managing and directing high-performing teams and driving multiple products that delight customers, will be the keys to success in this exciting opportunity.

    Our group is motivated by a common purpose of making Azure the best cloud for all developers. We move fast and build products hand-in-hand with our customers by continuously learning from them.
