Perfection not required
Excited about this role, but not sure if you meet 100% of the criteria? Employers would still love to hear from you.

The SharePoint Workplace Experiences (WEX) team is excited to grow a new team in the Atlanta Microsoft Technology Center. We are looking for a talented engineering manager to build and lead this team and grow SharePoint Online and Office 365. This team will be a full-stack engineering team that contributes to our vision of bringing leading solutions for enterprise, front-line workers, and educational users.

Office 365 is one of the leading paid cloud services in the world, winning fans in both the enterprise, education, and small business. Our team is responsible for transforming the SharePoint portal and platform experiences to be simple, fast, and mobile in a cloud-centric world. We are a team that loves big challenges and has a long history of shipping features that impact across Microsoft 365.

We work on a very broad set of problems and experiences spanning mobile and web. We own pages, portals, and developer platform for SharePoint, and are accountable for weaving intelligence throughout these and making sure they work great with native mobile experiences. We owned marquee features such as SharePoint home sites, which connect users with their work, enterprise search, people, and with company knowledge. We build delightful experiences, with a customer driven focus always iterating on a great authoring experience in modern pages for SharePoint, and we empower customers and developers to enrichen their experiences on SPFx (the SharePoint modern client-side framework). We’ve had incredible growth topping 30M MAU on modern experiences, and are partnering deeply with Teams to unlock scenarios with front-line workers (FLW) and educational users (EDU). This is a unique opportunity to take the trends, simplicity bar, and fast iteration from a consumer service but combine it with the deep customer connection, exciting business model, developer focus, and tradition of Microsoft’s success of our enterprise businesses. If you’re ready to work on the cutting edge of delivering cloud services and design experiences people will rely on every day to get their job done, this is the role for you.

We rely heavily on Azure, C#, REST services, open source frameworks such as React, Typescript/CSS, AdaptiveCards, and mobile/device specific development. We are working on several customer experiences that span multiple teams across Microsoft, including Teams, FAST/Delve, Azure, Exchange, O365 Apps, O365 Suite, and Yammer.


We are looking for smart, agile, and intellectually curious engineers who love creating and building things that delight our customers. You will be working with a team of amazing engineers, PM and designers, and work closely with our partners across Microsoft to deliver large scale, distributed architectures and features to meet SharePoint customer needs.

You will contribute to recruiting, interviewing, and growing a new team in the Atlanta MTC. You will build a collaborative and inclusive culture, and demonstrate strong global development practices partnering with our teams in Redmond, India, China, and other locations. You will partner with PM and design disciplines to land clarity on outcomes and build strong plans to experiment and iterate against those outcomes. You will partner across Office365 to leverage the best technology and solutions with a One Microsoft approach.

In addition, you will be responsible for technical direction, architecture, and ultimately quality engineering for your team. You will grow and empower your engineers, while rolling up your sleeves where appropriate to be strongly connected to the codebase. You will champion engineering velocity investments to keep your team happy and engaged. You will participate as an active leader as part of the WEX Engineering Leadership Team.


You would be a good fit for our team if...

1. You are a talented developer with 8+ years of Software Development experience with 3+ years of experience as a manager with a proven track history of delivering great experiences to customers.

2. You are truly passionate about software engineering, with a strong emphasis on agile development, and are eager to work full stack to deliver a great e2e experience.

3. You can empathize with our end-users’ needs and want to engage to help define their key experiences.

4. You’re invested and passionate about growing inclusive and collaborative teams, and helping engineers scale in their careers. You will proactively support this through your leadership, influence, and architectural skills.

5. You are passionate about engineering culture and velocity, driving a culture of rapid, responsible iteration with our incredibly engaged (and growing!) user base.

6. You are a great collaborator and partner and proactively seek to build productive win-wins across organizations.

7. You have a BS degree in Computer Science or equivalent.
