The Azure Network Monitoring team is looking for highly motivated and talented engineers to engineer and implement state of the art services that provide insights into the networking stack for one of the biggest networks in the world. Monitoring and insights over real-time telemetry is a key investment area for Azure and the Network Monitoring team is building automated systems that can detect and provide insights at all layers of the Network for all of our customers.

As can be imagined, this also involves working with some of the largest data sets imaginable and we are looking for skilled Software Engineers who want to grow in some of the most complex and challenging spaces.

In addition, an understanding of the ISO / OSI Networking stack and some knowledge of network protocols would be desirable. In this role you will be responsible for critical components of the network monitoring solution. This will include owning components from design through to deployment and operations. This is a high visibility position in an area of large and expanding investment for Microsoft Azure and offers a terrific opportunity for technical and career growth.
