Last updated 5 days ago
Location:Redmond, Washington
Job Type:Full Time

The Modern Microsoft Cloud is built on three pillars: Compute, Networking, and Storage. The Azure OneDeploy team is in Azure Compute. We stage and orchestrate deployments and repairs on a global scale, across millions of virtual machines with safety, efficiency, and high availability for customers. Our features and infrastructure are used by third party Microsoft customers, first party Microsoft services (e.g. SQL Azure, HDInsight, Cosmos and IndexServe), and core infrastructure in all three cloud pillars. Our work is key to accelerating innovation in the Cloud and provides a multiplier effect for the entire company by delivering smart infrastructure for everyone to use.


This position is for an experienced software engineer in OneDeploy focusing on one or more of the following problems:

Change management at all layers (infra/customer, public/private) in a coherent way from standpoint of safety, staging and impact.
Orchestrate change management (code, data, config) with changes in dependencies, repairs, scale/up down and other activities at all layers of the virtualization stack.
Collect and reason about health of targets across the Azure Stack.
Deliver great change management velocity.
Orchestrate change in co-ordination with customer preferences.
Deliver customer features for managing deployments on Azure such that Azure is the easiest and safest places to run cloud first services as well as traditional enterprise IT.
Enable experimentation, flighting and testing in production.
Build solutions that enable customers to focus on business layer and automate/simplify provisioning and deployment on Azure.
Work with open source technologies and with internal Microsoft teams and products to ship solutions.

This position requires expertise in distributed system design, development of large-scale services, and service analytics. Experts in these areas will find themselves applying their knowledge, validating their work in the fast-growing Azure cloud platform, and enjoying a great sense of accomplishment.

We offer you a strong team and culture that invests in new technologies and our people for the long term. While we design as a platform, we ship constantly in an incremental fashion. Emphasis is on solid long-term design, incremental development with high quality, and adapting to early customer feedback.
