The Datacenter Automation team is seeking a lead developer for a diverse set of applications, from imaging and patching solutions for server hardware, to business intelligence tools for tracking overall datacenter, compute and storage capacity, as well as deployment workflow automation. Lowering costs, improving availability and increasing efficiency is key to our success as the global datacenter team for Microsoft online services. A successful candidate will be responsible for designing and building key automation for operation of facilities critical environments, imaging and patching of production servers, and deployment of online infrastructure.

You should be a passionate Software Developer with a deep understanding of engineering processes and challenges to make a big impact on the entire company.
