Join us in growing Microsoft Viva Connections and other new SharePoint experiences!
Employee engagement is undergoing a fundamental shift in response to economic, demographic, and societal changes. People want to be excited about their work, be connected to their company culture, understand how to succeed, and feel supported across their entire journey as an employee. We are responsible for building and driving adoption of the platform and technologies that reach across major products like Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, Stream, and Search to deliver innovative and connected employee engagement experiences.
What We Are Doing:
We build experiences for the modern intranet and drive industry-leading publishing offerings for Viva Connections, SharePoint, Teams, Yammer and Stream across web, desktop and mobile experiences. We love big challenges, and we work with a broad set of technologies to address key customer needs with outstanding experiences. Our employee engagement and corporate communications offerings are mission-critical for customers around the world; our usage is strong and growing, having doubled again this past year.
We are seeking a designer with a proven track record for creating usable, seamless, elegant and impactful design solutions, deeply rooted in customer needs. The person in this role will both lead a small team and contribute hands-on work. This is an exceptional opportunity to reach hundreds of millions of people with your innovative and creative work. We’ll approach our problem space with empathy for our customers as well as drive to innovate and evolve the product. We’re building partnerships with teams across Microsoft, functioning as scenario and customer experts to solve real customer problems.
Our Studio is a diverse team of designers, researchers and UX Engineers who partner closely with PM, Engineering, Marketing and other disciplines. We are a high-performing team that challenges ourselves to live the Microsoft philosophies around inclusive culture and growth mindset. We embrace the Model, Coach, Care management framework with support for the growth of each individual on the team.
We have a proven track record of delivering strong business results with key metrics to track our successes and failures. Much of our team is local to Redmond, Washington, but we also partner closely with our teams in India, China and new teams in Atlanta & Vancouver, Canada. We like to have fun, celebrate our wins, and learn and grow from our mistakes.
We focus on creating an inclusive workplace where all people and ideas are welcome. To this end, we’ve created local mentoring rings and communities where we can learn from each other and grow. We focus on having inclusive interactions that foster useful dialog. We are dedicated to the work of creating a strong, inclusive and transparent culture – a safe place to do our best work!
