Microsoft Corporation Senior Software Engineer in Redmond, Washington

Do you love the engineering challenges of designing and delivering cutting-edge, cloud-scale distributed systems technologies? Do you want to enable cloud-based, stately applications that are fault-tolerant, self-managing, and operated at massive scale? Azure Service Fabric, within Azure Compute, is a highly decentralized runtime that abstracts and solves some of the hardest distributed systems problems, like failure detection, leader election, and replicated state machines that are fundamental to building hyper-scale, reliable, and available systems. Service Fabric powers many critical first and third-party services and runs symmetrically on the cloud and on premises.

In Service Fabric, we work on Container orchestration infrastructure that is the basis for running containerized workloads at Cloud Scale, supporting running the workloads in a hostile-multitenant safe manner across compute, networking and storage. We work closely with Container Runtime/Networking/Storage ecosystem, Windows Kernel and Azure ControlPlane. If you are passionate about containers, serverless experience and creating building blocks for a Cloud platform, then this role is for you.


Evolving the Service activation subsystem to the next level of scale for running stateful containerized workloads, enable new Container Platform capabilities (and their management) to enable Cloud scale services to pack their instances in a more dense fashion and enable lift-and-shift paradigm for running a distributed system within containers. You will be owning and driving technical designs, implementation and collaborating across multiple teams to achieve the goals.


Basic Qualifications:

  • 7+ years of professional software engineering experience

  • Solid Computer Science fundamentals and coding skills in C/C++ Strong understanding of the Container architecture and building and debugging containerized applications.

  • Bachelor's degree or higher in Computer Science or related field, OR equivalent industry experience

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Fluent in multi-threaded, asynchronous, and systems programming

  • Strong inclination for high performance.

  • Passion for building reliable systems and architecting at scale

  • Excellent technical design, problem solving, and debugging skills
