Senior Program Manager

Microsoft is a leader in delivering great online services including Microsoft 365 and Azure for the largest to smallest organizations around the world. The Microsoft identity platform is the identity and access foundation for these Microsoft online services and thousands of other third-party cloud SaaS apps. Access management is a top customer concern for adopting cloud services and Microsoft is investing in identity and access management (IAM) for applications. If you are passionate about enabling customers to protect their assets in the cloud, the Microsoft identity team has the right role for you!

Our team is looking for a Program Manager (PM) to help us on this journey. You'll work directly with administrators inside and outside of Microsoft to ensure they have everything necessary to manage and secure apps integrated with Azure Active Directory. You'll also work with our external partners and publishers to ensure they have the tools to understand the apps in their environment. Helping customers and developers to manage applications requires product features that educate them about the management needs they have and what actions to take to resolve them.

You will have a unique opportunity to demonstrate both empathy and technical abilities to succeed. In this role, you’ll be working with leaders and developers in many orgs who have their own timelines and agendas. Success means understanding the app lifecycle from start-to-finish and crafting the tools and processes that create a manageable application ecosystem on the Microsoft identity platform.

If this sounds like the right environment for you, please join us!
