The Azure SQL DB Resource Governance (RG) team is responsible for ensuring a high-quality experience for customers that provision databases that are allocated slices of a single core all the way up to an entire machine. This wide range in potential resources provisioned (performance) translates to potential revenue that spans pennies to hundreds of dollars per day. Compounding this are the various SQL DB offerings which include “serverless” databases where resources are not statically allocated for the databases lifetime. With the range in databases and customers, the RG team must ensure that the SQL DB business remains economically viable by properly utilizing the bleeding edge hardware powering SQLDB.

Placement and load-balancing is a complex and highly sensitive area where even one change in the algorithms and policies can have immediate and impactful changes to customer experience as well as the economics of the business. We are looking for someone to help determine and build the next generation of algorithms and software for this crucial area of Azure SQL DB.
