Microsoft Corporation Program Manager 2 in Redmond, Washington

We are the power management team for the operating system and our technologies are used on every single system that runs Windows. Partner teams build their technologies on top of our team's code base and rely on the integrity of our solutions.

We're responsible for the lowest layers of the operating system: where the processors and most core system hardware components interface with the operating system where the heart of power management occurs

As a member of our team, you will have the opportunity to work on features that advance the core operating system to be more performant, scale better across the wide spectrum of PC hardware and even consider new hardware scenarios. You will have the opportunity to extend power management features and apply them to the Azure cloud to make a big impact on the cloud business. Our team has a number of dependent teams, internal and external, which allows you to work with a diverse set of individuals across COSINE, Azure, Microsoft and the industry.

We work directly with Silicon partners and OEMs to ensure that our operating system can start and run the latest technologies coming down the pipe. Members of our team work on the core power management technologies for first party products, 3 rd party products, and the Azure cloud. We also work with the industry on what new hardware or features are in the works on future silicon, and how we might best leverage those in future iterations of the operating system.



  • Collaborate with external and internal partner teams to identify requirements and opportunities

  • Drive execution on parallel work streams and coordinating communication across partner teams

  • Partner with developers on our team to remove roadblocks and enabling them to complete their work efficiently. This could include being POC for your feature area and serving as the first gate for all partner team requests and inquiries

  • You care deeply about doing the right thing for your customers

  • You are a team player that approaches communication and collaboration with empathy and compassion
