Microsoft recently published a video on their “WorkingAtMicrosoft” YouTube channel depicting the fun and excitement of being a Program Manager at Microsoft.
The minute and a half long video introduces us to three current Program managers: Terri Chudzik (Lead Program Manager), Klorida Miraj (Senior Program Manager) and Bayo Olatunji (Program Manager), a few of whom work on Windows Phone.
A program manager is in charge of the vision of a product and works closely with various teams including design, development, and testing.
The video touches on the new experience program managers helped develop for Windows Phone with Live Tiles:
“It was really challenging, we were trying to come up with a new way to get to applications and how to navigate your phone that didn’t look like everyone else out there.”
It is pointed out that at Microsoft you are measured by results and not how you choose to get to the final result. An environment where you are continuously encouraged to have fun and think outside the box.
And yes, if you are wondering – Microsoft is hiring.
