Senior Content Developer
Redmond , Washington
November 22, 2017
Senior Content Developer Do you possess a growth mindset in which your customer empathy helps guide your decisions? Can you build APIs, web applications or other modern applications which help solve business problems of any size? Does the idea of solving those problems using a global cloud platform excite you? What you will do? Develop a range of content, from tutorials to code examples, from videos to sample apps. Create content that helps customers quickly get up to speed using Microsoft technologies or helps them dive deep into hybrid environments that mix on-premises with cloud and / or Microsoft technologies with 3rd party and Open Source.

To get there, you will work with engineering, customer support, and marketing teams to understand customer goals, needs and pain. You will use data about the product usage and content usage to prioritize the most important work. You can interact directly with customers to understand what they need as well as collaborate with them on content the entire world can see. Your contents sets will include contributions from others as well as your own. You will help focus everyone’s efforts in the right direction and ensure deliverables get out the door. On larger projects, you will manage the content plan and monitor progress while partners create most of the content. On smaller projects, you will own everything from plan to content creation to customer feedback. Repeat. You will continue to refine and improve your plans and your content through customer feedback, testing and keeping current with the ever-evolving technological landscape. You can use your skills and knowledge of working with data to create insights on what content and approaches to content are working well and those that need to be tuned up.
