IC PM2/Senior Program Manager Position in the Windows Developer Experience Team

Do you want to help ship the most ambitious release of Windows to date? Do you want to make your impact on millions of developers and hundreds of millions of users?

We are the Developer Experience Team. We are building the next generation of developer technologies for creating Windows applications.

You lead by example, cat-herd by necessity, and make a positive impact on your peers in PM, Dev and Test. Others in your org seek out your help because they know you will get it done, or that you will show them how to get it done better if they are coming to you for advice.
