Microsoft Corporation Program Manager in Bellevue, Washington

What if your job description were simply - “Make tomorrow better”?

That’s the essence of roles within our Bing Ads team. Every day, we bring our insatiable curiosity and customer obsession to the table, challenging ourselves and each other, to make tomorrow better for the millions of businesses we empower around the globe. As one of Microsoft’s growth businesses and key monetization pillars, Bing Ads contribute over $7B annual revenue, with consistent YoY double digit growth.

In Bing Ads Accounts & Billing, we build high scale services that advertisers, agencies and 3 rd party tool providers use to onboard to Bing Ads, create and manage their search advertising accounts that run on the Bing, Yahoo, AOL and syndicated network, and maintain their budgets and billing so that they can maximize their ROI from Bing Ads. As a Program Manager, you will shape our product every day. You will walk in our customers’ shoes – building on engagements with them, you will understand how they are using our product today and what they need from our product tomorrow. You will define the next set of customer problems to solve, opportunities to tap into. We need program managers who can keep the big picture in focus, while being able to dive into the unique engineering challenges we face daily. You will partner with, and inspire, our development team to deliver significant value to our customers and business. Besides working with these technical peers, you will also work well with non-engineering disciplines such as our UX Research/Design, Sales, Support, Business Development, Operations, Compliance, Legal and Finance partners - you will leverage and collaborate with them to keep a close pulse on our customers, define best-in-class experiences, communicate our vision and roadmap externally, take changes to market and then measure the impact they had on our customers and business.

So, if you are eager to bring your passion and hunger to work every day so that you can empower our customers, and you’re…

  • excited to help Bing win the race of search and online advertising,
