Creative Partner Program Lead

On Team Xbox, we aspire to empower the world’s 3 billion gamers to “play the games they want, with the people they want, anywhere they want”. Gaming, the largest and fastest growing category in media & entertainment, represents an important growth opportunity for Microsoft. We are leading with innovation, as highlighted by our launches of Xbox Series X|S, Xbox Game Pass, and xCloud, and our acquisition of ZeniMax Media (Bethesda).

Part of the Gaming Ecosystem Organization at Xbox, The ID@Xbox team focuses on enabling independent developers of all sizes to digitally publish their games on Xbox consoles, and on PC with Xbox Live. We’re incredibly proud of the more than 2000 games independent developers have published on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S via the ID@Xbox program, and we’re excited to continue to work on behalf of those devs to make shipping games on Xbox as easy as possible, as well as to use our resources to help inform and empower devs, and to amplify the promotion these publishers do for their games.
