Job Description

The Identity engineering team builds and manages Microsoft's online identity providers for all of Microsoft's online services and platforms like Azure, Office, Xbox, and HoloLens. We boldly pursue big ideas that power transformational advances in online security and user management. Our work spans both the consumer and enterprise space and can be found in internet scale online services, the Windows operating system and most phones and handheld devices. Identity engineering employees have deep technical expertise, customer insights, and a clear point of view that comes from first-hand, large-scale experience. We are engineers, technology leaders and experts, digital transformation change agents, and customer advocates.

Identity Platform team is a group of engineers who focus on three things: ensuring high levels of availability for all of the Identity services, enabling developer productivity inside the Identity division, and controlling the costs of running services that support billions of transactions per day.

Our team owns key resiliency capabilities that back Identity services and enable them to run with high availability. We manage all ingress of the Identity traffic and power its intelligent shaping. We have developed and continue to improve flexible service health assessment models, that increase our ability for automatic fault mitigation and reduce TTM of incidents. We work closely with our partners in and outside of the division to improve fault tolerance of the capabilities that are at the core of enabling access to Microsoft services.

When it comes to developer productivity, our focus is on building a common platform, that enables consistent livesite management operations. Live site management activities - responding to incidents, dealing with security requirements, deploying the service, operating it at scale, creating and maintaining service dependencies - exact a significant toll on all developers inside the organization. Our team's focus is to provide solutions at the platform layer, and let other developers work on business logic of their applications.

As our services continue to grow explosively, the cost of compute becomes rather large. Our team is driving a big effort to regularize resource consumption for the entire division - with the impact measured in hundreds of millions of dollars.

We have exciting opportunities for you to innovate, influence, transform, inspire and grow within our organization and we encourage you to apply to learn more!
