Job Description

Are you fascinated by software which helps millions of people connect, work and live their lives? Are you obsessed with creating products that are simple, useful and delightful? So are we. Office 365 is the foremost productivity software suite on the planet, and we are the teams crafting its next success stories. We are Office Verticals, a new organization on a mission to enable people and organizations to succeed at home, at school and at work, to deliver experiences which people trust and love to use to communicate, create, learn and work together, anywhere. Our culture is inclusive, casual and high energy; our team members come from diverse backgrounds and grounded in our customer needs. Our team has a strong sense of accountability and provides its members many opportunities for learning and career growth. This is a fantastic opportunity to build services and experiences that hundreds of millions of people worldwide will use at home, at school, at work, and across their lives. We work on a varied set of challenges spanning many computer engineering domains: user experience, high availability services, security, machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data, developer ecosystem etc.


Successful candidates will exhibit various attributes that will enhance their ability to succeed in these various positions:

* Technical Excellence - Technical excellence is at the heart of software engineering. This is demonstrating a passion for technology and the engineering craft, a curiosity to 'go deep', being able to quickly learn and build upon past experiences and being able to extrapolate from those experiences and deliver innovation. Technical excellence is rooted in demonstrating a strong aptitude for problem solving.
* Customer Focus - We are nothing without our customers. A focus on delivering customer value and being able to directly tie engineering decisions and actions to that value is a huge plus for successful engineers at any level.
* Drive for Results - Being able to drive for results - not merely finding the boundary of your responsibility - but following a problem through to its conclusion, to solve it once and for all, is a skill and capability that successful engineers exhibit.
* Collaboration - As most engineering is about working with others, both within an immediate team and across business units within Microsoft, effective collaboration is a core competency for all of our engineers.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate this broad set of attributes well. As the position is one of software engineer, an ability to code is a base requirement. As there are many forms of coding in practical use today, having experience in languages and frameworks such as JavaScript, C#, Java, Swift, Objective C and various others is acceptable, assuming the candidate can demonstrate proficiency in what they know, and can extend their learning to new languages, tools, and environments.

Qualified candidates will have a bachelor's degree and the equivalent of 3+ years' experience working in a software engineering environment. Mobile development experience is a plus.
