Directions on Microsoft is seeking a Microsoft licensing expert to join our rapidly growing Microsoft licensing training and reference guide business.
Directions on Microsoft is unlike any other analyst firm in the world. We're a small, focused group of analysts who are the leading independent authorities on Microsoft products and services. We have been for more than 25 years.
Our Fortune 1000 clients use our updates, research, roadmaps, licensing guides, and analyst briefings to cut through the fog of information that surrounds Microsoft and get to the critical facts they need to plan and drive full value from their Microsoft investments. No other analyst firm can match the depth and breadth of insight and intelligence we deliver.
Research, understand, and communicate important shifts in Microsoft licensing (e.g., Microsoft's volume licensing programs, Software Assurance maintenance plan, product usage rights and rules, and software asset management).
Evaluate the company's licensing programs and product licensing rules, their importance to Microsoft's enterprise customers and partners, the ways that customers and partners can make best use of them, their relative advantages compared to alternatives, how they are likely to evolve, and other important considerations.
Contribute approximately 5,000 words per month to our research and analysis services and deliver briefings to our customers, including several in-person Licensing Boot Camps annually.
Stay up to date on Microsoft licensing programs and rules through reading, attending conferences, and maintaining an ongoing dialogue with our many contacts at Microsoft.
Use your industry experience and acumen to separate substance from marketing hype, and make the complex seem simple without sacrificing accuracy.
Candidates for this role must be:
Candidates should also:
Have significant domain expertise with Microsoft licensing
Be comfortable interacting with IT executives, press, and Microsoft
Enjoy writing (You don't have to be a professional. If you're the right candidate, we'll bring you up to speed.)
Live in or be willing to relocate to the Seattle area
Directions on Microsoft offers a superb package that includes generous salary, pension, 401(k), vacation, and health benefits. We also offer a relaxed and exceptionally collegial work environment, a flexible work schedule, and zero tolerance for bureaucracy. Travel is moderate and scheduled well in advance. For the right person, this is a once-in-a-lifetime job that provides interesting and rewarding work in an ideal environment.
