Senior Software Engineer

Microsoft

September 14, 2021

Do you want to work in a team that’s at the heart of the Microsoft’s public Elastic Compute and Storage cloud, as well as Microsoft’s private Bing cloud? The three key services a modern cloud offers to its users are deployment, monitoring and repairs. The Azure One Deploy team builds the smarts at the cross roads of all these three. It is responsible for multi-level monitoring of both service and infrastructure health. It dynamically applies the health data to safely stage and orchestrate deployments and repairs for customer and infrastructural services on a global scale, across millions of virtual machines while maintaining high availability guarantees on services themselves. It is used by third party Microsoft customers, first party Microsoft services like HDInsight, SQL Azure, Cosmos and IndexServe, as well as for orchestrating upgrades and repairs to core infrastructural service like compute, networking and storage stacks.
Azure One Deploy System holds the key to unlocking rapid innovation while providing the most up-to-date infrastructure for customers maintaining service availability and quality. The work done in the team has a multiplier effect for the entire company as it delivers on a smart underlying infrastructure for everyone to use. The traditional methods of software delivery cannot keep up with the demand of the developer innovation and business need, and so we are innovating across all aspects of service delivery.
We are looking for talented and motivated data scientists and software engineers that are interested in making their mark in Azure and join a team with immense growth opportunities!
