You will be responsible for leading product development using Microsoft's Office.js platform, building new Excel, PowerPoint, and Word functionality with it and converting functionality in existing VSTO add-ins built using .NET Framework to Office.js. If you are not already a leading expert in Office.js, you will become one in this role. There are few, if any, more comprehensive Office.js projects than the one you will lead here.
Key responsibilities include:
Converting functionality in existing VSTO add-ins built using .NET Framework to Office.js,
Understanding the limitations of the newer Office.js API relative to the more mature and complete VSTO object model,
Clearly articulating Office.js limitations to senior management,
Proposing workarounds / alternatives to address functionality gaps in Office.js relative to VSTO, and
Accordingly, some familiarity with VSTO add-ins for Excel and PowerPoint, particularly, is necessary, as is your ability to understand C# and VB.NET languages (or VBA).
Your title and compensation depend on your experience. For an individual with meaningful connections within Microsoft's Office team and/or Excel or PowerPoint MVP status, this can be a CTO-track position. Regardless of experience level, this is also a great opportunity to pivot from VSTO to Office.js while getting paid to retool.Apply
