Our team is geographically distributed; we speak many languages, and we come from a variety of cultural backgrounds. We are fast-growing, and we are looking for hardworking people with a growth attitude, a passion for solving complex issues and obsession to customer happiness.

Besides Microsoft cloud experience and /or knowledge, we also look for Relationship Managers with a “run for the fire” behavior – people who thrive under difficult and challenging circumstances, who loves to get involved in difficult situations and at the same time learn.

If you love Microsoft cloud technologies and believe that your abilities can be developed through effort and persistence, and it makes your day when a customer or peer thank you for your help, this may be THE career opportunity for you.

Our culture is built around 5 attributes that drive our every decision, and our every effort.

  1. Customer Obsession– we exist for and because of the customer. We need people who share that passion and constant commitment to make our customer’s experiences easy, insightful and trusted – every single time without exception.
  2. Continuous learning Mindset – we value all perspectives and reward individuals that poke at the edges of what they know to be true. We are seeking people that think differently and are biased toward steps to accomplish great things.
  3. Diverse & Inclusive – we enable people who bring a contemporary view to shape our internal teams and encourage new hires to feel included.
  4. One Microsoft – we need to collaborate and learn to value the work of others, be willing to take their findings and add them to our own to make a better outcome for our customers.
  5. Making a difference – drive impact by looking for ways to continually improve your day to day responsibilities and the connections between your work and others
