Job Description

Do you want to be part of Microsoft's journey in making Azure hugely successful? Do you want to build the next generation of cloud services that can manage and operate itself by predicting, detecting and mitigate outages automatically? Do you want to build Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning solutions to solve real-world technical and business problems? Do you enjoy working with planetary scale data?

If these challenges excite you, this is the opportunity for you!

Azure Production Infrastructure Engineering (PIE) team is hiring a Principal Data Scientist to help us create an intelligent cloud system which learns from all the Azure operational data and makes Azure operation fully automated with minimal human effort to achieve the highest level of reliability and efficiency.

Azure PIE team is responsible for providing all the foundational systems and tools to build, operate, and support entire Azure and many Microsoft Cloud Services. These systems and tools include engineering CI/CD pipeline, deployment tool, incident management, change management, monitoring, automation framework, data analytics, etc. Many of these products serve both internal Microsoft engineers and external Azure users. As Azure continues to grow rapidly in scale, capabilities, and complexity, we are investing heavily in AI/ML space to revolutionize how we manage and operate Azure by building intelligence into every part of our service infrastructure. For example, from all the monitors and incident data, how can our system automatically predict a customer impacting outage and prevent it from happening? When outage happens, how to automatically identify the root cause, correlate different services' impact and apply mitigation to minimize the customer impact?
