Microsoft Corporation Architect in Hyderabad, India
Microsoft Consulting Services’ (MCS) mission is to lead and serve Microsoft’s customers and partners as they realize their full potential through Microsoft software and services. MCS and its partners bring the deepest expertise of Microsoft solutions—from enterprise planning to deployment and support—that helps our customers innovate to strategic advantage in their respective industries. As a way to accelerate the value provided by the solutions conceptualized, built and delivered by MCS, we are using an approach to build solutions along product centric engineering practices. To augment the current delivery team, within MCS, we are hiring Product Owners, Product Managers, and full-stack engineers that design, build, and operate cloud based products in collaboration with our customers. This team is outcome-focused, product-centric, outside-in user experience driven, and squad based, meaning that squads and product units stay together across customer assignments. These high performing product squads and consulting product units have industry focus (for example Finance-Underwriting), or technology focus (for example medical imaging, machine learning classification), or both.
As a CPM Product Owner in the IGD product-centric practice, you will be responsible for defining WHAT the product is (as opposed to the HOW it is built), and maximizing the value of the product resulting from the work of the feature teams. The Product Owner is responsible for aligning the priorities of the team with the desired outcomes and key results of the consulting product unit and key customer stakeholders.
