Software Engineer II

Many millions of users depend on Skype and Skype for Business every day for instant messaging, conferencing, app sharing and more. In the Infrastructure team, we are building a massively scalable, highly reliable, geo-redundant system in Azure that allows users and administrators to configure the system and set up policies. This information has to be available for many other services to consume at very high rates and with very low latency. It also allows the internal engineering teams to change the behavior of their services, manage controlled rollouts and conduct experiments.


Building and running services at scale is not easy, but it is a lot of fun. We are always looking for smart, passionate engineers to help us do. If you get excited about distributed systems and love to shave off the last few milliseconds of latency, you could be a great fit for our team. We’d love to hear from you.

We're looking for engineers that have:

•BS or MS in Computer Science, or related degree

•3+ years of software development experience in C#/C++ or related technologies

•Experience building large-scale services on cloud platforms such as Azure or AWS is a big plus

•Demonstrable passion for delivering high-quality software quality
