Want to work with a fun, dedicated group of creative people in a stable expanding organization? Like coding, innovation, and want to be part of building large scale and highly distributed system? Then look no further! The vision for Identity for Cloud OS (Windows Azure Active Directory) is a modern cloud based identity management service providing federation, identity management, device registration, user provisioning, application access control, and data protection. You can read more at what we do at What is Azure Active Directory? and the team blog at Enterprise Mobility and Security Blog. Active Directory/Identity is a competitive differentiator and value-add for Azure, Office 365 and the application ecosystem. We are paving new ground with the Enterprise Mobility Suite and innovating in our identity and directory services for the mobile-first and cloud-first world. Identity while being a platform service is also SaaS and something that organizations will pay for the governance value. It is also something that can help bridge on premise and online applications which in turn helps enterprises move their applications to Azure over other IAAS providers. We are expanding our scope to build a consumer directory and support MEGA-tenants for B2C, office apps for consumers and internet of things (IOT).

We are looking for developers for the Azure Active Directory team for multiple critical projects as we scale out the directory and enable richer scenarios so we can innovate and provide differentiating experiences at a rapid rate.
