The mission of the Expression team at Microsoft is to deliver great tools that enable designers and developers to create outstanding user experiences. We are currently working on a number of really interesting and challenging things – and we have some open positions to fill in development, test and program management.
Program management in the Expression team is, before anything else, about planning and designing our product in a holistic way. Beyond product design, PMs are also driving execution, partner relationships and all kind of other work that is required to deliver great software.
If you are passionate about user experience and a tool builder by heart, with a good number of years of experience in designing, planning and delivering great software products,we’d love to hear from you. If you have specific experience with authoring tools for creative users or development tools, we’d love to hear from you even more. We have a a couple of positions for senior or principal PMs open in our Redmond offices, right on the Microsoft main campus.
We also are looking for a rather senior UX design manager, ideally with a background in interaction design and user research, and a lot of love for hands-on design participation.
And by the way, the Expression team is one of the best teams I’ve ever had the honor to work in, and it is fun. And I of course say this without any bias
We are not just into production tools for UX design, we also care a lot about earlier stages in the design process – this is why we built SketchFlow, a set of tools for dynamic prototyping integrated in Expression Blend. If you are an experienced, senior or principal product designer or program manager with a special place in your heart for prototyping and conceptual design, and if you are interested in a job located in the Twin Cities in Minnesota, this might be the perfect job for you.
Detailed job descriptions for the open positions will be posted on the Microsoft career site shortly, where you also can apply for any position open at Microsoft.
If you are interested in any of our PM or design positions, or if you have any questions, also please feel free to mail me (cschorm at microsoft).
We are looking forward to hearing from you…
