Job description

If you’re empowered by technology, have a knack for creative ideas, and lead with a growth mindset, we want to hear from you.

The Windows Experiences team is a creative community of designers and researchers on a mission to create and deliver holistic customer experiences while imagining the future of Windows experiences. We are working to make Windows come alive with connected services from across Microsoft – including Bing, MSN, and Microsoft 365. Our diverse team works collaboratively to create products and ideas that allow us to move fast to build seamless and delightful experiences for billions of customers worldwide. Join us!

We’re building a culture based on learning, and creating meaningful experiences for our customers. We are seeking a multi-skilled Senior Product Designer with a mastery of visual design, experience design, and storytelling. We’re looking for a designer who’s driven by empathy for customers, and the desire to see a project through from rough ideas to launch. The right candidate works independently and is a passionate collaborator with other design teams, engineering teams and marketing groups.

Finally, this designer defaults to a making and building mindset – when in doubt we build something and test it. Embracing quick prototyping and testing is a must.
