You will work with the partner teams to build the “bridge tooling” alongside the community to close the gap between Windows and cloud native technologies.

• Collaborate across boundaries (internally and externally) to create a seamless product that delights our customers
• Work with the PM team to prioritize, estimate, and schedule feature work to meet the highest-priority demands on Windows Admin Center and Windows Server Containers

• Hire great talent and help meet career aspirations of all engineers on your team
