Job Description

Do you want to be part of Microsoft's journey in making Azure hugely successful? Enterprises are a big focus in Microsoft's strategy for Azure, Backup is one of the top workloads picked by enterprises to adopt the public cloud, and Azure Backup is our offering in this space for enterprises. Protecting all vital state in Azure for business continuity is also critical for Azure to earn customer trust, and Azure DPP (Data Protection Platform) takes responsibility for enabling that.

Our geographically distributed team builds on-premises, hybrid, and cloud backup solutions that aim to disrupt the traditional on-premises backup segment (worth billions of dollars!) and lead in providing backup solutions for all emerging public cloud assets. We are developing a highly scalable multitenant PaaS service & platform consisting of loosely coupled micro services integrated with the Azure Portal to help protect any workload (VMs, SQL, SAP, File Server etc.) running on Azure or private cloud. Azure Backup already manages hundreds of petabytes of data in the backend across over half a million data sources, and you will join us at the beginning of this journey!

Basic qualifications:

* 9+ years of hands on experience designing, developing and shipping commercial software.
* 3+ years of experience building and shipping highly scalable and reliable cloud services or distributed systems. Azure or AWS experience a definite plus.
* Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related field

Preferred qualifications:

* Team player, someone who helps others grow and succeed, who is not afraid to ask for help, and who is able to work with geographically distributed teams.
* Desire for continuous learning, a can-do attitude, self-starter, and persistence in the face of challenges.
* Great customer empathy, good collaboration skills, and a passion for continuous improvement.

Your Opportunities:

You will work with a dynamic and passionate and team to lead the design of our next generation Azure DPP, working closely with workload teams across Azure. The goal of the DPP is to allow Azure services to offer backup functionality for their customers without having to build the required capabilities from scratch, while DPP does the heavy lifting to protect customer assets. You will help define what the new platform looks like, and mold it to offer industry leading data protection for any Azure service and help meet their customer needs.

You will live and breathe customer advocacy driven innovation, live site reliability, engineering system efficiency, and an agile environment with continuous delivery. You will have the opportunity to go as broad and deep into our stack of microservices as you like, mentor and grow junior engineers, and strongly influence the engineering design and execution of all our microservices and workloads. If you enjoy taking risks, learning from mistakes, tackling hard engineering challenges, and want to make real, continuous customer impact, then this is the team for you!
