The Marketing Communication Manager embraces our company’s Marketing principles, is a Microsoft Brand Steward, and drives ongoing improvements in maximizing marketing spend and driving marketing efficiency, and marketing impact.
As a marketing communications manager, you will manage annual marketing communications priorities and success metrics. You will direct priorities for events and media, public and analyst relations. You will oversee production and deployment of advertising and drive the strategy and execution of digital and social media.

As a Partner/Channel Marketing Manager you will shape the strategy and manage the execution of programs that drive partner profitability. Partner profitability programs accelerate partner cloud practice development by helping the partners build business plans, develop cloud offers, create go-to-market channels, form new business opportunities, increase partner satisfaction, and strengthen partner loyalty.
This role bridges internal and external stakeholders to develop and drive channel marketing plans. You will engage directly with partners to drive execution, hold partners accountable for meeting business results, and adapt plans and investments accordingly.
You own the partner ecosystem and channel strategy. We need creative, analytical, and broad thinkers who collaboratively engage with partners to identify and achieve mutually beneficial results. As needed, you will incubate new partner models and deliver a partner gap analysis. You own the partner campaign, program activity delivery, and sales pipeline support.
