Are you passionate about building cool devices and technologies? The Surface Team focuses on building devices that fully express the Windows vision. A fundamental part of our strategy is having desirable and powerful devices that enable the experiences people want, and elicit their excitement. Creating these devices involves a close partnership between hardware and software engineers, designers, and manufacturing. We are currently building the next generation and Surface needs you!

The Surface team is seeking qualified candidates for SDET/Engineer positions in the Design Verification team to work on our next generation Surface. You will be responsible for the design verification, characterization, tuning and qualification of Surface hardware. You will develop comprehensive verification and characterization strategies and plans that bridge high-level use cases to product architecture/design to effectively and systematically reveal and screen out defects. The Engineer provides critical analysis of data and drives the right solutions, design changes, optimizations, and trade-offs in the context of business priorities. On a frequent basis, you will create and introduce innovative test techniques and methods to ensure robust product qualification. You will also participate in strategy discussions, develop test methodologies and plans, execute test procedures, and be an integral part of release cycles. The engineer will work in a fast-paced environment and will need to demonstrate ability to learn new technologies, make progress quickly and with the maturity to identify and fill gaps. Candidates must enjoy working collaboratively with development, program management, hardware engineers, and partner teams. This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated engineer with a passion for integrated experiences to thrive in a small team environment. This person will ensure we are delivering the complete end-to-end hardware and software experiences that delight our customers. The ideal candidate would be an engineer with a Major in CS and Minor in EE.
