Ability to meet Microsoft, customer and/or government security screening requirements are required for this role. These requirements include, but are not limited to the following specialized security screenings:

Do you want to work in a team that’s at the heart of the Microsoft’s public Elastic Compute and Storage cloud, as well as Microsoft’s private Bing cloud? The three key services a modern cloud offers to its users are deployment, monitoring and repairs. The Azure One Deploy team builds the smarts at the cross roads of all these three. It is responsible for multi-level monitoring of both service and infrastructure health. It dynamically applies the health data to safely stage and orchestrate deployments and repairs for customer and infrastructural services on a global scale, across millions of virtual machines while maintaining high availability guarantees on services themselves. It is used by third party Microsoft customers, first party Microsoft services like HDInsight, SQL Azure, Cosmos and IndexServe, as well as for orchestrating upgrades and repairs to core infrastructural service like compute, networking and storage stacks. Azure One Deploy System holds the key to unlocking rapid innovation while providing the most up-to-date infrastructure for customers maintaining service availability and quality. The work done in the team has a multiplier effect for the entire company as it delivers on a smart underlying infrastructure for everyone to use. The traditional methods of software delivery cannot keep up with the demand of the developer innovation and business need, and so we are innovating across all aspects of service delivery.

The position requires the expertise of distributed system design, large scale service coding capability and service analytics. If you are expert in these areas, you will find yourself applying your knowledge, validating your work in the fast-growing Azure cloud platform, and enjoying the great sense of accomplishment. We are also looking for the developers with strong analytics mindset to tune the service and drive the results with service analytics. We offer you a strong team and culture that invests in new technologies and in our people for the long term. While we design as a platform, we ship constantly in an incremental fashion. The emphasis is on solid long term design and incremental shipping with high quality and adapt to early customer feedback. You are encouraged to come up with creative solutions for numerous hard problems like: “How can I help code to get to production faster and safer” “How can I build smart systems that can automatically deploy and rollback unsafe changes” “How can I make all aspects of service management super-efficient, so more time is spent on writing customer value features” As a part of the team, you will gain a solid understanding of what it takes to manage the Azure cloud and how to work with large scale services.

Preferred Qualifications:
- Distributed system experience
- C++/C#, Java
Basic Qualifications:
- 5+ years engineering experience
