The Azure Production, Infrastructure and Engineering Performance Team is tasked with making Azure even more reliable by developing tools and services which discover and analyze any interruptions across Azure. Our team identifies reliability discrepancies within the platform and then works with teams across Azure to find the root cause and address the issue.

Our Team ships to production daily, which requires stealth design and development skills. We follow agile methodologies with a focus on efficiency, iterating quickly and failing fast. This role will focus on Linux, C++ and Debuggers and will give you the opportunity to gain experience developing across the Azure platform and become a leader in analyzing reliability issues across the service.

We are looking for a software engineer with proven experience working with large scale distributed systems, who can assist us in delivering at least a 10x scalability improvement to our system which will then release as an Azure Product offering. This is a great opportunity to have a huge impact on the reliability and scalability of all of Azure and ultimately helping Azure customers deliver more reliable services.

If you have a passion for reliability of large-scale distributed cloud services, this could be a great opportunity for you!
