Senior Product Manager


Location: Redmond, Washington

Job Type: Full time


Microsoft 365 is one of the largest enterprise services at Microsoft (and the world!), and security and customer trust are key to the success of our business and its continued growth. A key pillar of securing the service is building effective and scalable systems that help us detect and respond to threats against M365 infrastructure. This enables us to catch and mitigate threats before our customers are harmed.

To achieve this mission, the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) and Microsoft 365 Core Security team is looking for a Senior Product Manager to drive our work in security monitoring and response systems. In this fast paced and highly visible role, you will work closely with teams across the M365 business to understand the threat landscaping facing the service. You will translate that into a strategy for enabling the kind of monitoring and response capabilities needed to mitigate those threats, and then work with our engineering teams to build high scale data systems that enable those capabilities. Throughout this process, you will continuously stay plugged in with security researchers and service owners to make sure that the capabilities and systems we build stay ahead of the threats we expect to face as the service evolves.



  • Work with internal research and product teams to understand threats facing M365 that need effective monitoring and response capabilities. Build and maintain a backlog of monitoring and response capabilities based on that
  • Develop specs and proposals for enabling effective monitoring and response with our data systems based on the backlog you generate. These specs may span detections, and improvements to the underlying big data systems powering those detections
  • Work with engineering teams to implement these new monitoring and data processing capabilities, and ensure they land fully at the scale of M365
  • Produce reports and analytics and the effectiveness of our monitoring and data processing capabilities and work with your engineering counterparts to regularly drive improvements based on this
  • Define KPIs/metrics for your area and get your stakeholders on the same page


Required Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of experience in a product management role
  • 1+ years of professional experience with analytical/quantitative tools used for big data processing – SQL, Kusto/Azure Data Explorer, Hadoop, etc.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Proven ability and willingness to operate and influence teams in a complex, matrixed organization
  • Strong communication skills, including ability to drive exec communications
  • Strong ability to provide structure to an ambiguous problem space
