Microsoft Corporation Senior Software Engineer in Redmond, Washington

In Analog, people-not devices-are at the center of everything we do. Our tech moves beyond screens and pixels, creating a new reality aimed at bringing us closer together-whether that’s scientists “meeting” on the surface of a virtual Mars or some yet undreamt-of possibility. To get there, we’re incorporating diverse groundbreaking technologies, from the revolutionary Holographic Processing Unit to computer vision, machine learning, human-computer interaction, and more.

We’re a growing team of talented engineers and artists putting technology on a human path across all Windows devices, including Microsoft HoloLens, the Internet of Things, phones, tablets, desktops, and Xbox. We believe there has to be a better way. If you do too, we need you!

These projects will be innovative, challenging and fun and in some cases, built in collaboration with renowned companies and partners across the world.

What you’ll do:

• Work on state-of-the-art AR/VR prototypes and showcases.

• Work on cutting-edge AR/VR games and applications.

• Bring up new technology stacks and platforms to build AR/VR scenarios.

• Collaborate with software, hardware, mechanical engineers, designers, artists and scientists to solve complex technical problems.

What you’ll need:

• 5+ years of software design and development experience.

• Outstanding technical problem-solving, design, coding and debugging skills.

• Ability to quickly learn new code bases and adapt to existing coding practices.

• Excellent programming skills in C# and/or C++.
