Microsoft Corporation Senior Program Manager in Boston, Massachusetts
This position is open to flexibility on location within the United States (remote work).
Organizations collectively own exabytes of data across their data estate, and the rate of volume growth is accelerating. It is challenging to understand what data exists, how data flows through their analytics and BI tools, how to find relevant and trusted data, and to govern that data to make sure data assets are being used in ways that comply with both legal and corporate policies. That is why we are building Azure Purview, a unified data governance service to help organizations to manage and govern data across on-premises, multi-cloud, and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. With Azure Purview, customers can easily create a holistic, up-to-date map of their data landscape, gain insights into their data estate, and centrally govern access to data. And of course, we are our own customer. We learn from how we scan and govern our own data estate at exabyte scale at Microsoft and use those learnings to continuously drive innovations for our customers.
We are looking for an experienced and passionate product manager to envision and deliver innovations in the data governance area! In this role, you will be responsible for ensuring Microsoft’s own data asset discovery and cataloging needs are met while also continuously driving innovations into Azure Purview.

Planning and execution: relentless in setting goals and continuously driving product innovation and experience improvements to meet/exceed goals. Proven ability to plan, organize, and manage complex product features across multiple workstreams

Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or IT technical discipline or 5+ years of industry engineering experience

High enthusiasm, integrity, ingenuity, results-orientation, self-motivation, and resourcefulness in a fast-paced competitive environment.
