Our software development team, located in Belgrade, is building some of the most advanced and widely used data processing cloud services in the world. The services we build are based on ground breaking technology and are global market leaders, with millions of active users. Azure SQL Managed Instance is our customer’s first choice service for migrating existing SQL Server instances from on-premise data centers to the cloud. Thousands of customers have easily migrated their apps to this service, and got all the benefits of automated database management (patching, backups, high-availability, security). Azure Synapse Analytics is our flagship modern data warehousing service, used by everyone from individual developers to world’s largest enterprises. We’ve recently developed a new SQL serverless analytics engine which enables users to run SQL queries on top of raw data files in cloud storage, up to 100s of terabytes in scale.

We’re looking for a senior data scientist & engineer who would work with our software engineers and program managers on analyzing customer behavior patterns and providing AI-driven experiences to our customers, as well as improving the efficiency of our global-scale cloud platform. An example of how we enhanced our cloud services based on customer’s behavior patterns is Automatic Tuning in Azure SQL Database.
