Want to collaborate closely with product teams across Microsoft to produce documentation for API capabilities in Microsoft Graph? Do you love building Product Platforms for developers, builders, and creators? Then join us and have a direct, positive influence on businesses of all shapes and sizes using Microsoft productivity products.

We are the Developer Experience team in the Microsoft 365 Core group, responsible for the developer experiences in Microsoft Graph and we’re looking for a Senior product manager to join our team.

  • Passionate for building products with excellent user experience.
  • Excited about APIs and developer tools.

  • Obsessed with organizing information in a logical, concise manner so that developers, administrators, and builders can find the information they need at different stages of their journey.
  • Data-driven and analytical.
  • Eager to help customers and product teams succeed: maybe blogging about technology, contributing to specs on your team or in open-source projects, or maybe helping others in troubleshooting forums.
  • Committed to customers, participating in relevant communities, and thinking every day about how your work makes Microsoft’s tools and services better.
  • Committed to building innovative and modern tools that will inspire and motivate customers using Microsoft platforms and services.

  • Improve the vision writing process and be as clear as possible when articulating what we are building.
  • 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.
  • 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 – You’ve created documentation for developers and have experience helping them learn how to build with APIs, webhooks, authentication, and other tools.
