Senior Program Manager

Last updated 12 days ago
Location:Bellevue, Washington
Job Type:Full Time

As the fastest growing business application in Microsoft’s history, Teams is redefining how our customers collaborate and communicate in their environment. Teams addresses the needs of a diverse workforce by bringing together several tools and communication methods (calling, meeting, first, second and third-party apps) as a hub for collaboration.

Enterprise adoption of Teams is typically blocked on key asks in the security and compliance space. Much like emails, Teams is increasingly becoming the surface area for security hardening as well as enterprise compliance requirements like eDiscovery, retention, supervision and many more (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/security).

These capabilities will delight our customers and further differentiate Teams from its competition.

We are a dynamic and agile group that’s building new capabilities to secure our customers content. We have an open culture with respect for diversity. You will have lots of executive visibility and the opportunities for advancement in this role.
