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

In the Stream Engineering team, you would be responsible for helping to craft, build, grow, and operate the systems we use to guarantee the health of our service. You'll focus on the challenges of maximizing service quality in an environment with dozens of data centers, many services, and unique deployment models.

You will truly own your features and implement the changes needed to complete them from end to end. Be ready to focus on metrics and experimentation, and pay close attention to data to ensure that changes are actually solving problems. Our modern engineering system makes it easy for you to make changes to our service, and changes typically enter production within a few days of being committed.

* Participate in, and support the culture
* Help to build up our team through interviewing
* Work in a small, agile team partnering with expert engineers that behaves more like a start-up than an established team
