Windows and Web developer with Social Media tendencies

Interesting in being an MVP Lead at Microsoft?

Are you interested in working with and owning the relationship between some of the most influential people in the computing world and Microsoft? Do you DIGG Web 2.0, Technical Communities and Social Networking? Is having real, measurable impact on the customer experience important to you? Are you looking for the best team in Microsoft to work for? If you answered “yes” to all of these, then the U.S. MVP Leads team is looking for you!

As you know, I’m a Senior MVP Lead owning the IW (Information Worker) space. That basically means that I manage the MVP accounts for MVPs of the Microsoft Dynamics and Office client product lines. As a result, my job is being an expert in the online and offline communities for these products. That includes Web sites, forums, newsgroups, user groups, conferences, etc. Basically, if there’s a place where any of these products are socialized, then my job is to know about those areas and the stars that make those communities thrive.

Once we discover these influentials, we award them with the MVP Award and enable them by connecting them to the product team, granting them access to non-public information, giving them tools to better do their jobs, etc.

It’s a very cool and rewarding job with a great deal of flexibility in terms of career growth. If you think this is something you’d be interested in, drop me a line –
