Core Services Engineering builds and manages the critical products and services that Microsoft runs on. We boldly pursue big ideas that power transformational advances at Microsoft and for our customers, while helping Microsoft teams work smarter, faster and more securely every day. Core Services Engineering employees have deep technical and business expertise, customer insights, and a clear point of view that comes from first-hand, large-scale experience with Microsoft and industry solutions. We are engineers, technology leaders and experts, digital transformation change agents, and customer advocates. We have exciting opportunities for you to innovate, influence, transform, inspire and grow within our organization and we encourage you to apply to learn more!

The Security Engineering Services team gets to build large scale security solutions, with a talented group of engineers, and we are looking for a senior program manager to help us deliver the next generation of security solutions and services in support of US Gov and Sovereign programs.

This program manager will be the glue between the problems our company and customers need solved, and the work our engineers do to solve those problems. We work with amazing partners, so you’ll need to love that kind of work and be proficient at creating and maintaining friendly and productive working relationships with other teams. Oh, and there are a ton of challenges that arise every day in this job. So, you’ll need to be able to help our team work closely with the teams you serve, reason about priorities, and create collaborative agreements about the ordering of work while maintaining good relationships. Since we’re a security team, we focus a good deal on security technologies so a background in security is a plus but it’s not a prerequisite. What’s super important is that you can show empathy for customers, be sensitive to their needs and are proficient at guiding teamwork to deliver a great security solution.

The Security Engineering Services team is a fun, dynamic, supportive community of engineers, service managers, and program managers who are committed to delivering the best solutions and services to our customers. We want to truly understand their requirements and deliver solutions that not only satisfy their needs but exceed their expectations. We get to build and run security services at extremely large scale, which presents challenges we love to solve. If that sounds like the right environment for you, please join us!
