Job Description

Are you interested in tackling complex problems in the Identity space, in an agile environment? If so, then the Identity & Access Management (IAM) engineering team in the Azure Active Directory is the place to be.

The IAM team is responsible for delivering the next generation of identity management products & services to manage identities, credentials, roles and access rights across both on-premises and cloud in a consistent & seamless manner. We are at the front and center of Microsoft's identity strategy and work with the Active Directory (AD) and Azure Active Directory (AAD) services to power critical needs such as authentication, authorization, single sign-on, email, management of devices and social enterprise.

Identity and Access is at the center of everything our customers do, from social networking to single sign-on, from small devices to desktops to data centers. As customers make the transition from on-premise to cloud, they need simple, scalable products and services that meet their identity management needs across environments with many disparate systems.

One of the key areas is analysis and presentation of the data to hundreds of millions of end users. Some of the challenges in this area are large-scale data management and aggregation from disparate sources and across multiple datacenters and creating compelling UX experiences with APIs sub second response times. Another important area is management and features around single sign-on of thousands of applications through secure identity.

This is a broad and complex mission and is critical to Microsoft's business strategy.
