Microsoft IT Messaging Positions


Operations Manager (Messaging and Collaboration)

 

Microsoft IT Messaging and Collaboration team has an excellent opportunity based in Redmond for someone who can work under high pressure with a high profile. You need to be able to juggle and focus on multiple proactive and reactive tasks at the same time as advancing a team of Operations Analysts whilst providing the reactive and prompt efficiency required of an Operations Manager responsible for Microsoft's internal email, voicemail and collaboration services. The Messaging and Collaboration team (MACS) is not for the faint-hearted - it is a highly-pressured, challenging yet rewarding and high profile team position where anything less than World Class is unacceptable. This position offers man management, customer exposure, direct product group exposure and product influence, serious pioneering dogfooding, plus the chance to learn Exchange, Sharepoint, MOM, SQL, etc. We're looking for someone to take the 24x7 Monitoring function in MACS to the next level. The successful candidate will combine a mixture of solid technical skills and the ability to manage a team of process-oriented individuals operating 24x7. Ability to build and police process is essential. 6 months+ man management experience and a strong desire to further a managerial career is required, as is a solid technical background. Preference will be given those who have Exchange (2000 and later) or Sharepoint Server experience and, although these are not requirements, an aptitude to learn both is.

 

You'll need a degree (preferably Computer Science), 6+ months man-management experience, a solid technical background (Win2k3, and ideally but not essentially Exchange, Sharepoint, MOM) and the desire and passion to drive World Class Operations.

    What is "dogfooding"?

  2. AG says:

    "Eating your own dogfood" is what Microsoft calls implementing Beta products internally in production.

    Have you looked to PSS in Dallas? Lots of qualified and great people that need to find something before FY’08.
