Who is FastTrack for Azure?

We are a fast growing team of engineers who are obsessed with helping customers architect and migrate solutions into Azure successfully and with confidence.

We listen to customer needs and take a solution-centric approach that provides customers with engineering resources, best practices, tools and resources that drive Azure usage.

We love working direct with customers. At times this will be remote. At times it will be onsite. We also have an interest in engaging at scale be it, pod-cast, blogs, vlogs, Azure doc contributions or conferences.

We are the eyes and ears of Azure product engineering by listening to customer requirements and issues and translating those into clear, actionable product feedback.

We are lifelong learners. While we ask you bring technical skills with you, we are after people who are excited by always learning what's new then passing on that knowledge both internally and externally.

We go beyond talking to just IT. We also talk to the customer business, end users and data scientists.

We regularly work directly with the engineers developing the Azure services which gives us an unmatched environment to learn and grow.

We are a team that cares about each other and our families. While we work hard, we provide a supportive environment and an excellent work life balance.

We are the FastTrack for Azure team, and if what we do excites you then maybe you should join us!
