What We Need

We’re looking for a communications pro for our growing Analyst Relations team that can manage day-to-day client and agency projects in a dynamic, fast-paced team environment. You’ll collaborate on our analyst relations campaigns and play an important role in our Microsoft client’s company launches, news moments and initiatives. Collaboration is key because you’ll partner with our clients to drive brand recognition and relevance on a global scale. 


So, what does that really mean? If you read any Wall Street Journal story on business technology, you’ll often find quotes from analysts who are experts on what customers need most to transform their businesses for the years ahead. The Microsoft Analyst Relations team works closely with that community, acting as a resource to them by providing accurate, up-to-date information they can use as they write research and talk to their clients.


The Senior Account Executive position is based out of WE Communication’s west coast offices and will work remotely until our physical offices reopen.
