Do you want to work on the latest and coolest Azure product? Are you a strong test lead looking for solving a variety of interesting engineering and technical problems? Do you want to gain valuable experience to ship V1 product as the next generation of enterprise management system? If you answer yes to any of these questions, we have the ideal job for you!

Data is at the heart of all modern enterprises. It powers strategic decisions, creates lasting competitive advantages, generates new insights. Technology has made it easy to acquire enterprise data and store vast amounts of it cheaply. Yet connecting decision makers with their data is as hard as it’s ever been. What are the data sets in my enterprise that are relevant to my question? Where do I start looking?! Can I trust that spreadsheet? Where did it come from? Is it high quality? How do the data sets I found relate to each other? Can I easily mash them up to get new insights? How do I run my analytics at the massive scale of my enterprise?

These are the type of questions people ask daily. The software industry has been working for decades to answer them, but the volume and complexity of data has been outpacing traditional approaches. We believe we have found a technical strategy that solves these problems in a disruptive and innovative way. It combines the power of the cloud, information retrieval, data mining, distributed computing, and databases to provide a unique portfolio of services that will enable end-user experiences previously envisioned only in science fiction.

Join a world-class team that is set up to innovate, create and lead from the ground up. Solve some of the hardest problems in modern computer science, ship often and have fun.

This senior test lead should have passion and an entrepreneurial spirit to succeed in this fast-paced team! As a lead, you will help to define and implement testing strategies; hire, mentor, and manage the test team; work with development and PM teams to ensure high quality feature releases; improve test effectiveness by applying different test methodologies such as test in production, fault injection, model based testing, and fuzz testing; contribute to design and implement test tools and automations, and promote test innovation.

Basic Qualifications:
  • 3+ years of experience in ASP.NET, WCF, C#, or Java coding;
  • 3+ years of leading and managing a testing organization
  • B.S./M.S. in computer engineering or science
Preferred Qualifications:
  • Online service shipping experience is preferable
  • Experience in web service development is highly desirable
  • Windows Azure and services experience is highly desirable
  • Ability to quickly learn new areas and unlearn things that don’t apply from shrink wrapped world is important.
  • SQL Server experience is highly desirable
If this sounds like the type of challenge you’ve been looking for, we want to hear from you. Please contact us today!
