Do you love the engineering challenges of designing and delivering cutting-edge cloud-scale distributed systems technologies? Do you want to enable cloud and container based stateful applications that are fault-tolerant, self-managing, self-healing and operated at massive scale with ease on public or private datacenters around the world? Do you want to contribute to the critical solutions for Azure on which both cloud and enterprise computing depends? Do you want to be part of a fast paced and energetic team?

Azure Service Fabric is a highly-decentralized runtime that abstracts and solves some of the hardest distributed systems problems like failure detection, leader election and replicated state machines that are fundamental to building hyper scale, reliable and available systems. This platform powers many critical 1st and 3rd party internet scale services and runs symmetrically in cloud and on premises.

The Service Fabric team is looking for highly motivated and talented engineers to design and deliver the next generation platform for cloud, container-based micro services that operate at high scale, and high density on both Linux and Windows.
Platform that scales and perform in almost all dimensions - millions of transactions per second with multiple GB/s ingress and egress with sub-second end-to-end latency, systems that run across tens or hundreds of thousands of machines, and handle petabytes of data, etc. - Reliable data structures that vastly simplify programming models for extremely fast, highly available and consistent data optimized for a memory centric (rather than disk centric) world, brought right next to the services. - Enable rich ecosystem that integrates with different backend systems like Hadoop, Storm, Azure Stream Analytics, Cosmos, etc.

This is a great opportunity to challenge yourself, grow your career and influence the next generation of distributed systems platform for Microsoft. You will get to work on solving some of the most difficult and complex problems in distributed systems space, with a team of highly motivated and talent individuals that includes some of world-class engineers that understand this space deeply.
