If there were ever a job description that would get me to consider joining a large company again – well, this would be it.

How cool would this job be?

This role will work across the new Windows Live division with teams like Spaces, SkyDrive, Messenger and Hotmail to construct a winning strategy for Microsoft in photo and video sharing. This role involves leading the team to design the strategy then build and implement a winning solution that will be loved by millions of customers.

The Digital Memories Experience team (DMX) is helping people make deeper connections with those they care about.

And we want to make it easy and fun to enjoy your photos and videos, whether that is on the PC in your office, the Media Center in your living room, the XBox in your entertainment center, or on your mobile device when you are out and about.

  1. And the funny thing – I am COMPLETELY qualified for this position. Except perhaps the lack of degree that MS and others (Google is stupid in this regard) requires of people now.

    But I have and use EVERY acronym used above. I know MS consumer products better than MS support does. I am not bragging – I’m just an avid user.

    But still not interested in “working for the man” again. The man is blind, and often stupid.

    Big business does not work for their customers anymore – they work for investors.

    And that is exactly why I consult now.
