Name: Marta Lobo de Pablos
Position: Program Manager in AI Team
Tell me about you and your role?
I am a Program Manager in a AI team that works with other Microsoft teams to scale their products into more languages beyond English, making AI less expensive, more scalable, and market relevant. I work to ensure diversity and inclusion are addressed so all the cool features we release are rapidly available to those who don’t have English as their go-to language.
Tell me about your career path so far?
I studied Computer Engineering and Business and, although I took a couple of internships as a Software Engineer, I found that Product Management is more fore me. I am close to the tech side of things but I also pay special attention to the business needs and all the stakeholders’ requirements. I started in my current role right after graduation, after an internship the previous summer.
What do you like about working in tech?
I love the huge impact everything we do has on society. This has both upsides and downsides, because the responsibility is huge, but the chance of changing things on a massive scale and set the path for the future to come is exciting!
