Software Engineer

**By applying to this role, you will be considered across all open positions on our team. A leveling evaluation of experience and skillset will take place during the interview process.**

We love enterprise customers. And they love us, too -- to the tune of BILLIONS of dollars each year.

Why? They get so much more from Microsoft than any other tech company, because Microsoft provides much more than just tech. Like a jeweler inspecting a precious stone, we take a MULTI-FACETED view of a customer's workings, and offer seamlessly-integrated products that empower their company to achieve more.

We are the Windows Commercial team, and we get to be the lighthouse that helps guide the rest of the Windows and Devices organization, along with the rest of Microsoft, towards the UNIFYING VISION for our enterprise customers. We dream of a world where there are no more management servers to deploy and Windows is managed from the cloud using Intune and other services. We help customers adopt to a model in which Windows is being deployed twice a year. We provide insight and business intelligence to our customers, providing them with unprecedented insights into their user base and the health of their devices. And much, much more.

What do we build? A whole lot of things, but mainly the foundational platforms that each stage of the IT lifecycle (e.g., procurement, deployment, management, support, etc.) builds upon. We work at many layers, from the kernel, to operating system (OS) services, to the shell, to apps, to Azure services; code in multiple programming languages (e.g., C/C++, C#, JavaScript); debug in WinDbg (for lower level code) to Visual Studio on Windows. Our work includes opportunities for partnerships with a large number of teams at Microsoft to productize exciting and innovative ideas. ALL levels of software engineers are invited to apply.

Here are some more details on our sub-teams' charters:

• Deployment - We build a platform for IT admins and hardware manufacturers to make it easier to configure a Windows device. Using the Windows Configuration Designer (WCD), our customers can create management packages deployed with a Windows image in the factory, during a device’s first boot, or later during the device’s lifecycle. These packages can change security features, install applications, configure connectivity settings and much more. Our platform spans operating system services, UX, and tooling.

• Windows Licensing - Our team owns the licensing platform for all Windows Editions, Universal Windows Apps, Office and Windows Mobile -- for Small Businesses all the way to large Enterprises, from Education to Governments. Policies, contained in the licenses, control which features to enable on the various Windows Editions, and upgrading licenses on a device magically unlocks all those new features. We also own the cool technology to prevent tampering and reverse engineering of the Windows licensing and DRM media.

• Device Management - With the increasing volume and diversity of both ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) and corporate-owned devices being used in organizations today, a growing challenge for IT departments is keeping corporate information secure. Microsoft mobile application management (MAM) and mobile device management (MDM) solutions help minimize this complexity by offering management capabilities both on-premises and in the cloud, all from a single console. Our team delivers the modern management platform across Windows client devices. We work with a large number of teams across Microsoft to expose their management capabilities, and work with Enterprise customers to help them transition into modern management.

• Windows Analytics - Our goal is to close the feedback loop for enterprise customers, and as part of this, we are working to define and deliver the next generation of cloud-based infrastructure and solutions incorporating machine learning. We want to change Microsoft culture to ship not only features for our enterprise customers, but also analytics to let our customers know they're using those features effectively and efficiently.
