Are you interested in working on a cutting-edge business that understands and values your work and sees user experience, customer experience, and service design as key strategic priorities? Join us as an interaction design-oriented UXer on Dynamics 365, the next generation business application in the cloud.

You will be designing a new suite of Human capital management (HCM) web applications in Dynamics for Talent. These applications help our customers to attract talent, schedule and conduct interviews, make offers, onboard, provide on-job learning and much more. Join us as we disrupt the HCM software space by creating innovative, modern, intelligent applications.

Microsoft is one of the most innovative, tech-driven businesses in the world with huge breadth, reach, and capabilities. You should have a strong interest in technology and know-how to work alongside engineers and product managers, and an ability to tell compelling stories about users and products to support your work.

Other success factors for UXers in our agile environment:

  • ThoughtfulnessYou're thoughtful and deliberate in your choices and able to articulate that on the fly across a cross-functional team, and occasionally, conflicting priorities and objectives.

  • Sales intelligence + persuasion skills

  • A facilitator

You know how to collaborate with others and let them put their concerns on the table.

VIEW JOBS 7/17/2018 12:00:00 AM 2018-10-15T00:00 Come help define and design Microsoft PowerApps as part of Cloud +AI Studios. We're looking for a UX Content Designer (content strategist, UX copywriter) to help define and design PowerApps and Common Data Service for Apps. PowerApps puts building business apps within reach of anyone, and the associated Common Data Service for Apps provides data storage with rich data modeling and customization capabilities. At Microsoft, we believe breakthrough technology is created by constant experimentation, fearless exploration, and a commitment to long-term innovation. That where you come in! The role You'll work in a multidisciplinary design team to co-create product experiences and content, collaborating with product managers and fellow content designers, interaction designers, visual designers, researchers, and data scientists. This position requires deep understanding of UX, technology, and the role language plays in design. (It isn't a marketing role, though occasionally you may craft messaging and copy for that domain.) The company and design team Microsoft's mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more through our technology and innovation. To help make that a reality, our Cloud + AI Studios of 150+ designs solutions that help our business customers transform their companies. Everything from Azure and Dynamics 365 to PowerApps, Power BI, and AI-infused experiences. We ship business software that meets the same high bar for usability, performance, and design as the best consumer apps and services. And as product designers for AI and intelligence, we bring humanity and clarity to every product, experience, and conversation we design. Our studio's core priorities: * Design experiences customers love * Work as one team * Deliver success * Become even better every day About you You're a UX strategist/writer/content designer-type who loves to learn, solve challenges, and dream up new ideas. You've worked on multiple products already, and you're looking for a new adventure. You're excited about what's possible when trends converge, in this case advances in traditional business intelligence, data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. And you're OK with the hard work of defining away the complexity and managing for ambiguity in an emerging space. You have a way with everyday human language—transforming complex into simple and sprinkling in moments that delight. Everywhere you look, you see ways to improve experiences (try as you might to turn off that particular superpower). And you're passionate about working on innovative projects that will change the world for the better. You like to fix what's not quite right, shorten text so that it's pointed but not pointy, and make users unaware of how smooth their ride forward is (that's what UX is all about). You know how to reduce the number of screens in an app, to remove the extraneous, to drive users to the next page and the next, to shorten the path to done.
