My current title is “Program Manager” at Microsoft, but at Microsoft, different “Program Managers” work in distinctively different roles and functions.
I think about my role as a Product one. I conduct customer and market researches, design product features, own product launches, service customer requests and drive for success with a cross-functional team. I own an internal enterprise documentation platform with tens of thousands of users across the company. I also own an Inner Source sharing platform.
I also actively participate in community-oriented activities at Microsoft, such as coaching interns, recruiting at my alma mater, interviewing, and other exciting social events.
