Job Description

The rapid growth of the Microsoft Power Platform (Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agent, Power BI), is fueled by organizations across the globe investing in leveraging low-code/no-code development models to accelerate their digital transformation ambitions. Power Platform is a strategic new growth area for Microsoft, but more importantly, it is a disruptor technology that is giving “Citizen access” to broader set of users in an enterprise, to create next generation of business productivity software via radically simplified experience and without requiring extensive and costly training. It is transforming careers of ‘citizen developers’, making pro-developers far more productive and helping IT finally innovate at the pace that their businesses expect. To boost Power Platform to scale to millions of 'citizen developers', we are investing in Power Portals – an early emergent-stage product within Power Platform suite currently used by customers to enable collaboration with users both internal and external to their organizations. We are early in our journey to innovate on Portals product, integrate with other Power products (PBI, PVA, etc.) and shape it into a thriving standalone customer-facing business to drive incremental revenue and value for Power Platform.

 

The Power Portals team is looking for a strong and experienced program manager who will obsess about a focused end-to-end product experience, grow the technical capabilities of the product, and build a community of customer fans, while taking it from its early emergent stage to a thriving business and drive wide-scale adoption of the Power Platform within some of the biggest companies in the world. Key attributes we look for in candidates:

  • You thrive on working well with others. You make the people around you better
  • You get stuff done. You feel great when you're delivering something substantive and meaningful to actual customers.

  • Product success: Drive features and initiatives to grow users and engagement. Track awareness, engagement, and user retention to inform future investments. 
  • Customer obsession: Connect directly with customers through EBCs, conferences, and champion key customer partnerships for the Power Platform.  Learn from customer feedback, adapt quickly, and ship features that customer love.
  • Leadership and team culture: Keep the team and leadership abreast of progress and roadblocks, looking around corners, and thinking long term. Foster an inclusive work environment and create accountability for positive team collaboration.
