Job Description

Do you enjoy supporting and motivating a team of engineers? Would you like to work on an open-source project used by millions of developers, and being part of a flourishing world-wide community of contributors?

We are looking for an engineering manager for the .NET Core libraries team. Your team will design and implement .NET data types and libraries; these include base data types (such as String, DateTime, Int32, Regex, Collections, Compression, Networking, Cryptography, IO, Diagnostics, Globalization, and Reflection) and new areas of investment such as IoT, Machine Learning, and Big Data.

You will help design APIs that are easy to learn and easy to be productive with, and implement those APIs so that they are super fast and efficient to use. You will work on code almost all written in C#, and runs on many platforms (Linux, Mac, Windows) and architectures (x86, x64, ARM, ARM64) and potentially browsers (WASM). In coming releases, you will likely particularly focus on Linux support and performance.

* 8+ years experience working on software platforms or libraries
* 2+ years leading a software team (either as a technical lead or as a direct manager)

Ability to meet Microsoft, customer and/or government security screening requirements are required for this role. These requirements include, but are not limited to the following specialized security screenings:

Microsoft Cloud Background Check: This position will be required to pass the Microsoft Cloud background check upon hire/transfer and every two years thereafter.

We also consider qualified applicants regardless of criminal histories, consistent with legal requirements. If you need assistance and/or a reasonable accommodation due to a disability during the application or the recruiting process, please send a request via the Accommodation request form.

Benefits/perks listed below may vary depending on the nature of your employment with Microsoft and the country where you work.

You will support and motivate a team of engineers, build understanding of customer scenarios and strategy, manage our backlog, coordinate cross-cutting projects across groups, and provide technical guidance and judgement within your team and elsewhere.

Your experience as a technical leader will help create an environment that attracts and retains high performing engineers, and where everyone can do their best work. In this role, you will have the opportunity to help define core experiences for millions of .NET developers.
