Microsoft Corporation Senior Program Manager in Cambridge, Massachusetts
Have you ever wondered how the internal sales management platforms and capabilities function behind the Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) business and how Microsoft manages its Professional Services deals with our Customers? Most simplistically, we support the sales management platforms, processes and capabilities for the Sales Management domain for our MCS and Customer Experiences & Support (CE&S) teams. The workflow experiences that support our ability to do business are massive, complex, and mission critical for the MCS and CE&S businesses. It is the Digital Professional Services (DPS) engineering team that leads that effort.
Our challenge is to create and demonstrate world leadership in the digital transformation of professional services. Our scope includes pre-sales and sales (lead to order), Quoting, Deal Management, Contract Management, (consulting and support) and more. Our systems and experiences must grow to meet tomorrow’s challenges. We will accelerate Microsoft’s growth by radically transforming our contracting, approval and workflow experiences to be the most scalable, agile, intelligent, and compliant in the world. We work on the premise that our experiences are consumer grade and showcase the best of the Microsoft technology and user experience stack.
