Software Engineer II

This opening could be a rare opportunity in your career if you are interested in (a) large-scale data processing, (b) building up a billion-dollar market, and (c) highly agile and transparent execution model. The Azure Analysis Service (AAS) team is offering SQL Service Analysis Service (SSAS) as a PaaS product on Azure. SSAS is a box product with billion dollars revenue and now we are moving this product and our customer base to the cloud. The v1 lift-and-shift to cloud is successfully done and we are seeing nearly 20% month-over-month growth rate, but we are just at the beginning! If you are passionate about growing a service from millions to billions of revenues, you should join us now!

Currently, we are executing the second phrase of this project. We have merged the box engine team and the cloud service team to execute on a cloud-first vision with big data integration. If you are excited about big data and how to help customers navigate and analyze their data in the cloud, you should talk to us now!

Finally, we execute under One Team model in which everyone has a chance to work on and move between any part of the product, including engine core, service infrastructure, cloud scalability, and service quality.

There is no more separation between service and product quality. We share the responsibility together. We also constantly provide peer feedback to help each other grow and it is also heavily used in annual review and promotion evaluation. If you like to work in such transparent and healthy competitive environment, be part of us now! We are looking for strong engineers in all levels. Engineers who are strong in managed code will be a good fit for the service part and ones who are strong in native code could find your interest in the engine core.

We provide plenty of opportunities for you to learn and grow your career with us!
