Microsoft Corporation Software Engineer II in Atlanta, Georgia
We are looking for a Software Engineer II to help us build the next generation of Azure compute infrastructure that powers Microsoft first-party and third-party customers. This is a rare opportunity to define and drive the next frontier of compute infrastructure to meet the ever-growing compute demand and optimize utilization of the hardware through allocation algorithms and packing. While we are a production team managing our services 24x7, we also work very closely with an applied research team, so we are able to stay abreast of the latest cutting edge research and participate in research publications.
If you are interested in pushing the envelope on the cloud-scale distributed system technology, graph optimization, allocation, and building rock-solid platform based on them with 99.999% availability with low latency - we would love to hear from you!
We are looking for early-to-mid career Software Engineers to help us deliver highly scalable services and world-class product experiences. You will have opportunities to work on multiple layers of the technology stack, ranging from customer-focused user experience work, building scalable distributed cloud services, working with big data, machine learning, and everything in between. You will learn how to design services and experiences that are required to work around the globe. You will collaborate with team members and other engineering groups in Microsoft to build highly scalable backend platforms and services in a dynamic and agile environment. You will be part of a fun-loving, diverse team that seeks challenges, loves learning and values teamwork. You will have opportunities for mentorship, career growth, and work on high-business impact areas.
We value people who can bring a diverse perspective to our product and where a developer will not just write code, but will have a real meaningful impact on the direction of the product and which features to build. We are building a team where diversity of thought and background is valued as strongly as technical skills, and where everyone is encouraged to come up with new ideas to make our customers’ lives better.
Some of the specific responsibilities include:
Design and develop robust, distributed, scalable, and resilient platforms for Azure Compute infrastructure, including services and tools;
Developing Pub-Sub system on top of open sourced Zookeeper/Kafka and contributing to the open source community.
