Microsoft Corporation Senior Product Designer in Redmond, Washington
In AI + Insights Studio, part of the greater C+AI Design Studios, we believe in the power of co-creation and deliver holistic customer experiences and drive business impact at scale. We craft experiences that empower every organization to unify and understand its customer data to derive insights that power personalized experiences and processes using state-of-the-art AI. Our goal is to augment and amplify human ingenuity with intelligent technology and services by infusing Data Science + AI in everything we do. We do this using a thoughtful approach when designing AI systems with sovereign data and ambient intelligence that extend and empower human curiosity.
We are a studio of diverse styles, voices and views reflecting the diversity of our customers, and giving us the empathy to serve their needs. Nurturing and continuously evolving this culture are our shared responsibility, because we create better products together. We believe designing in the open empowers us all to move fast and build experiences without seams.
We share, we jam, we collaborate. We re-use rather than reinvent. We contribute to each other’s work to make it better. We work in small, cross-app, interdisciplinary teams to ensure we build experiences that are inclusive, efcient and delightful.
We make to think, we prototype and test. We build both category-leading apps, and seamlessly connected experiences across them.
We tell compelling emotional stories to open space for innovation, win new customers and take our existing customers along. We push boundaries constantly because we believe in the magic of bold ideas. And because it’s our responsibility to strive to be best-in-class. We owe it to our company, and our customers.

Dynamics 365 Customer Insights has been building momentum in this space and has become a market leader in several categories. As part of our evolution, we are innovating at a rapid pace, designing new experiences that extend from convergence of privacy-first and identified data.
