Job Description

Overview

We’re the Azure Edge Workload Security team at Microsoft, and we’re looking for a Senior Product Manager who can define and deliver security solutions for our Azure Stack and Azure Arc platforms, as they adapt to the new AI age.

These platforms allow our customers to manage their ‘edge’ applications, which run in their own premises, as extensions of their Azure cloud applications. This creates huge development and operational benefits – customers can build, run, and monitor their applications in the same way, and consume the same Azure services, wherever they are physically located. This also creates new security challenges: to what degree can we protect these edge workloads in the same way as when they run in Microsoft’s own data centers?

Our current investments include identity and secret management for edge and cloud Kubernetes workloads, and we're moving to help secure access to sensitive workloads, such as AI models.

Come join a team where you’ll:

  • Help make the world more secure, by strengthening Microsoft platforms that are used by developers everywhere
  • Deliver ‘security through usability’, by ensuring an easy-to-adopt experience for developers and operators
  • Work with a friendly, diverse peer group who have a shared commitment to a culture of respect, integrity, and accountability, while distributed across timezones
  • Partner with, and learn from, experts in product teams across the company

Grow your career by creating clarity about customer needs, proposing changes to our products, and generating energy to deliver them successfully.

Responsibilities

  • Discover the security-related problems faced by developers and operators of Azure edge workloads. Create clarity by asking incisive questions, listening carefully to the answers, and combining your resulting insights with other sources of research and analysis.
  • Work with the engineering team to architect solutions to these problems that are both usable and technically feasible.
  • Validate that the solution truly solves the problem for customers, and also meets the needs of the business.
  • Prioritize these validated solutions in team backlogs based on a broad and nuanced understanding of their likely value and cost.
  • Participate in the release of these solutions. Create compelling customer communications and documentation. Generate energy in your partnerships with individual engineers and other PMs, building relationships across different organizations, setting clear expectations, and identifying and resolving issues.
  • Become a recognized team expert in the Azure Stack and Azure Arc platform, able to perform hands-on experiments and to share learnings with other team members.

Qualifications

  • A BS/MSc in technical field or equivalent technical knowledge (required)
  • Relevant experience in a Technical Product Management role
  • Deep understanding of, and empathy for, software engineers and operators, as both customers and partners.
  • Outstanding ability to discover, understand, and solve technical problems.
  • Adaptable to meet dynamic goals in a very agile team.
  • Self-motivated with strong organizational skills.

  • Proven experience of working through the full product cycle from initial design to final product.

  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills.

Microsoft Azure Edge + Platform (E+P) is a globally distributed team of engineers, architects, program managers, product managers, business program managers, business administrators, user experience researchers and designers who are responsible for the platform for Microsoft and for delivering Microsoft’s edge vision.
