Are you enthusiastic about privacy? Do you want to make a measurable impact to Gaming products and services that exceed our customer’s needs?

The Xbox Product Services (XPS) organization is looking for a Technical Privacy PM to help drive privacy across the Gaming organization.

XPS works across the entire Gaming business at Microsoft to demonstrate empathy and make customers happy. We strive to deliver extraordinary experiences while enabling customers to control their personal data. As technology becomes more embedded in our lives, customers want to understand how and why their data is collected and used, and they want to be able to make appropriate choices. We build trust with our customers through transparency and choice. We do this by driving privacy data governance and focusing on promoting clarity and customer choice over how data is used to power our gaming ecosystem.

The Technical Privacy PM will focus on data collection, management, and use best practices across Gaming.
