The Microsoft Azure Storage team is seeking engineers to contribute to the development of our highly distributed, massively scalable, and ubiquitously accessible storage system. We are looking for developers interested in building a new tier for our cloud storage offering. This will enable us to scale Microsoft’s cloud storage and power Microsoft Azure for the next decade.
Join the team responsible for developing and running a service storing exabytes of data world-wide over many datacenters and massive numbers of servers, forming a foundational piece of Microsoft’s cloud business. If you’re looking to take on tough challenges in system level software development in a hyper-scale, distributed, storage system, this is the place for you. This is a fast-growing team with lots of opportunity to experience the process of delivering a customer facing service from the ground up. With these opportunities, you will influence design and write new code rather than maintain and refactor legacy code. You will be working with various technologies and concepts including micro services, durability, concurrency, scale up, storage concepts, .Net and more. Quick ability to learn is essential, as you will move across different areas from scale up to security to perf tuning, etc.
An ideal candidate will bring:
  • Passion for large scale storage system
  • Experience with multi-threaded/parallel programming
  • Experience building scalable distributed systems
  • Proven track record in designing and delivering quality software
  • Excellence in software engineering practices, coding and solid foundation in data structures, algorithms with strong testing, debugging and analytical skills
  • Experience with distributed algorithms (e.g., consensus, state machine replication, distributed transaction) a plus
  • BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or related engineering fields is a plus
Requirements for the position are:
  • 2 years programming experience in C#, C, C++ or Java
