Job Category: Software Engineering: Development

Location: Redmond, WA, US

Job ID: 789300-77174

Division: Windows Division

Are you passionate about building the infrastructure to help improve the efficiency of a thousand developers and get our products to market faster? If so, Windows Live needs you. Windows Live is responsible for key features and applications in Windows 8 (Live ID, Mail, Photos, etc) and some of the largest services in the world (Hotmail, LiveID, Messenger, SkyDrive). We are looking for a senior leader who can help transform our build pipeline to allow much faster builds and automated tests to change the way we develop and ship our software.

This is a complex problem because of the wide variety of the products we build (front end services, back end services, Win32 client, Windows 8 clients, mobile clients) and the large number of servers we deploy to ( > 100k). It requires someone who can understand partner needs and translate that into a strategy in terms of both technology and process. The technology stack ranges from the build tools to the distributed system that runs the build and test automation.

Required Qualifications:
  • 7+ years of shipping production software
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Bachelor’s or equivalent degree in Computer Science
Preferred Qualifications:
  • Familiarity with LINQ, LINQ to SQL, SQL, Entity Framework
  • Experience developing web services
  • Experience with distributed systems and fault tolerance
  • Experience with build systems (msbuild, makefiles, CoreXT, BuildTracker)
