Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform and central to our cloud-first vision and mid-to-long term growth strategy. We are targeting the financial services industry as a potential source of revenue, as many banks and insurers seek to leverage public cloud for the economies of scale, global footprint, and agility it brings. The Global Ecosystem team is positioned organizationally inside of core Azure engineering and takes on challenging cross-business initiatives such as this. We are building a team focused on this space, newly named Financial Industry Transformation Engineering (FITE).


Our mission is to think outside the box, work across business units at the company, and drive utilization of the platform by financial institutions. We work closely with other engineering groups in Azure like blockchain, security, storage, and compute; as well as other teams like Office 365, Azure customer experience team, sales, legal, marketing, contracting, and finance. Areas we are accelerating include regulator engagement, sales prioritization, vertical solutions, partnership plays, business intelligence and marketing.


Our team is looking for Program Managers to help drive our strategic work with global banks and financial institutions of all sizes. We take on new challenges, envision outcomes, devise strategy, and execute with a no-holds-barred mindset. We seek to coalesce requirements, vet planned features for our customers, and drive them through execution and delivery. We focus on regulatory issues blocking customers from Azure adoption, typically related to security and information assurance. We deal regularly with compliance issues, including privacy and transparency.


We look for opportunities to coalesce customer requirements. We attempt to reduce burden on our colleagues. Our PMs work to meet our obligations today while reimagining how we do business tomorrow, prioritizing issues, and improving iteratively. We seek to scale and chase big wins. We are Azure’s FITE team! Come transform the future of the financial services industry with us.
