Are you passionate about the web? Are you looking to make a difference in the lives of millions of customers? Do you want to help build the web we want?

The Microsoft Edge team is entering a period of rare opportunity. Microsoft Edge has been rebuilt from the ground up on top of the open-source Chromium project and is already the most frequently used Microsoft application on Windows 10. We are looking for candidates to help us shape the future of the web and address the latest challenges of the internet, whether that’s helping build a more privacy-focused web, helping close the native capability gap with Progressive Web Apps, or meeting web developers’ unmet needs across HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

The Edge Engineering Systems team builds a world-class engineering system that gives our engineers superpowers to do their work quickly and confidently. If you’d like to work on a close-knit, agile and highly collaborative team in a startup-like environment in order to build a massively parallel distributed system that exists to serve your teammates, then the Edge Engineering System team might be the right team for you. We work on hard engineering problems as well as globally unique computer science problems.

We are looking for an individual who holds themselves to a high standard of excellence, is excited to learn new technologies and is satisfied by delivering results, not just activity. The ideal candidate will be familiar with best practices of service development, deployment, and operations and have experience in these areas. They will be asked to collaborate with both internal partner teams and with the open-source community.
