Principal Software Development Engineer, Advanced Services Delivery, WW Digital, Services, & Success

Redmond, WA, United States

The Advanced Services Delivery team is seeking a talented and highly motivated Principal Software Development Engineer (Principal SDE) to be part of our digital transformation. 

 

The core business objectives of the ASD organization are to improve IT health outcomes for Microsoft’s largest business and enterprise customers, and to enable profitability of the Microsoft Services business via packaged, highly-scalable digital delivery assets. We do this through three primary deliverables: A platform for performing customer IT health assessments, a catalog of IP that includes digital learning assets and workshops to help educate customers, so they can make the most of their IT environments, and a portal called the Services Hub that ties it all together. We have over 20,000 active customers and are working to improve our platform and the services we deliver on top of it, and driving the future of the entire Services business.  

 

What kind of team is ASD? We take a hard core Agile approach to provide a key source of innovation for the MS Services business. We are autonomous enough to be self-directed, big enough to drive impact with a global team, and small enough to know each other. And we don’t forget to have fun and care for each other along the way.  

 

We’re looking for an extremely talented, highly motivated Principal Software Development Engineer (Principal SDE) to drive implementation and delivery of our platform. We’re seeking a developer that has knowledge and interest in gaining experience across the application development stack. The Principal SDE will be working on project(s) focused on Microsoft Azure (Hosted Services, Blob, Tables and Queues), DocumentDB, SQL Azure, Webjobs, Operations Management Suite, .NET Framework (C#), Web and Client UIs (Web API, TypeScript, etc.). The system does lots of bulk data processing and then rendering that data back to the users. There is a client component that does the data gathering, which is in Angular and hosts workflows to drive that creation. 

 

In addition to the technical expertise, we expect someone who will be obsessed about working closely with customers to build solutions that delight them and make them more efficient. We’re committed to helping the IT Professional get better value out of their Microsoft investment. The ideal candidate will ask challenging questions about what needs to be done and push for simple features that will deliver value.

 

Our team moves frequently between layers of the system, enabling people to deepen their experience in many areas. While everyone has an area of focus, we all chip in and help in various areas as needed. This is a great group that works to drive hard toward business outcomes while having a lot of fun and growing as a team.  Working from home part-time or another flexible work arrangement is a possibility for the right candidate.

  • Architecture, design and development of platform features  
  • Guide and mentor other engineers to continually enhance the quality of software produced

Qualifications

  • 7+ years of development experience with either C# or Java
