The recent shift to more remote work has enabled us to broaden locations where our team members are based. This position is to work remotely without need to relocate to our headquarters.

Azure Cognitive Search is a managed search-as-a-service cloud solution that helps developers build rich search experiences over their data without having to worry about the administrative headaches of regular maintenance of their underlying search infrastructure. We also help customers put AI to work by leveraging cognitive skills during indexing to extract insights and enrich their content without the need to hire a data scientist.

We are looking for a program manager with a proven technical background, experience designing and using RESTful APIs, strong collaboration skills, experience building/releasing and continuously improving products/services through data driven methods, and a passion for quality and customer/partner empathy.

We are an organization that cares about work-life balance, personal and professional growth, enjoying your work, and liking the people you work with. Our team consists of people from a wide variety of backgrounds, different professional and life experiences. We maintain and grow that diversity, and it is what makes us better at building the best solutions for our customers while having a blast doing it! Core to our team culture is the belief that you must have a ‘people-first’ approach to sustainably building and running 24×7 cloud services.
