    Senior Content Publishing Manager

    Are you interested in using the Microsoft Graph REST APIs and making it easier for our customers to understand how to build apps for their organizations and customers through excellent technical writing? If so, you belong in our Identity content development team!  Here’s the who, why, and what.

    Who: You’re a technical person who is passionate about technical writing and how important quality documentation is to the customer experience. You’re able to translate technical details into clear, everyday language that our customers can understand. You ask questions. You act as the customer advocate, thinking about what the customer needs to know as a new user, and what they need as they become more advanced. You’re able to come up with a cohesive strategy and see the big picture. You’re a lifelong learner who understands that there’s always room to improve. You’re collaborative, able to accept and incorporate feedback, and you always keep the end goal in mind — to produce what’s best for the customer.

    Why: Think of the far-reaching impact you can have on our customers if you can help them accomplish their goals. Our organization is healthy, and our leadership is open minded and flexible. Roles in content development offer a solid career path and provide a broad view of our products and services.


    • You’ll use your writing expertise to help your team create a range of content, like API reference, conceptual docs, tutorials, how-to topics, and code examples.
    • You’ll learn about new technologies, and explain the features using language that our customers can understand.
    • You’ll work with our feature teams to understand content requests, help on-board them into our publishing pipeline, participate in API reviews, and manage content releases.
    • You’ll work with engineering, customer support, and marketing teams to understand customer goals, needs, and pain points.
    • You’ll use data about the product and content usage to prioritize the most important work. You can interact directly with customers to understand what they need.
    • Your content sets will include contributions from others as well as your own. You’ll help focus everyone’s efforts in the right direction and ensure deliverables get out the door.
    • You’ll continue to refine and improve your plans and your content through customer feedback, testing, and by keeping current with the ever-evolving technological landscape
