The team within Xbox builds solutions for managing the Xbox Live environment. Working very close to the “bare metal” of Xbox Live, along with a good amount of autonomy in how we design and build our solutions, makes this an exciting place to work. We need a skilled Software Engineer who has experience designing & coding data visualization solutions.

Successful candidates will exhibit various attributes which will enhance their ability to succeed in these various positions.

Collaboration - As most development is about working with others, both within an immediate team, as well as across business units and portions of the company, an ability to collaborate effectively is a core competency to have.

Customer Focus - A focus on delivering customer value and being able to directly tie engineering decisions and actions to that value is a huge plus for successful engineers at any level.

Drive for Results - Being able to drive for results, not merely finding the boundary of your responsibility, but following a problem through to its conclusion, to solve it once and for all, is a skill and ability which a successful engineer should exhibit.

Technical Excellence - Core to be a software engineer is of course technical excellence. This is not merely knowing the latest and greatest language developments, but demonstrating a passion for technology, a curiosity to ‘go deep’, and an ability to quickly learn and build upon past experiences, to be able to extrapolate from those experiences, and deliver innovations. Technical excellence is rooted in having a strong demonstrable aptitude for problem solving.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate this broad set of attributes well. As the position is one of software engineer, an ability to code is a base requirement. As there are many forms of coding in practical use today, having past experience in languages and frameworks such as SWIFT, Objective-C, Ruby, node.js, Python, C#, Java, and various others is acceptable, assuming the candidate can demonstrate proficiency in what they know, and can extend their learning to new languages, tools, and environments.

Qualified candidates will have a Bachelors’ degree and equivalence of one year’s experience in working in a software engineering environment.


Basic Qualification:
• At least 1 year of industry experience.
