The Office Media Group (OMG) has a simple vision – to empower all Microsoft 365 customers to achieve more with media. Building and maintaining strong connections across location and time is critical in the world we live in, and the emotional power of media – video, audio, and photos – makes it best-in-class for fostering personal and relatable connections.  In OMG we aim to unlock the power of media for every Microsoft customer with tools and experiences thoughtfully targeted to meet their needs most appropriately.

The team in Serbia is focused on improving video viewing experiences in productivity scenarios. This is especially relevant today, given the abundance of recorded meetings across industries and schools. The roadmap includes logical improvements like adding chapters and interactivity and cutting-edge AI powered experiences that will unlock the full potential of video.

In this role, you will lead a team of passionate program managers and work with our teams of engineers and partner teams to define and execute on a vision of making video an everyday habit in businesses and organizations. You will work with our engineering and research teams to learn what new technologies are on the horizon, work with our customers to learn what are our greatest opportunities and with our design teams to find the best user experiences that connect these two. You’ll set shared goals with partner teams and work closely to deliver end-to-end experiences that cross multiple Microsoft products.

If you are interested in transforming how people use video to get stuff done, join our team!
