The Microsoft Advertising Research & Development group is looking for an experienced and talented lead to build the next generation delivery platform. Online Advertising is among the fastest growing businesses on the Internet today and is a key monetization engine for the Online Services Division and Microsoft. The Ad Platform is at the forefront of this vision, making it one of the most strategic and fastest growing teams in the company. With the addition of the Yahoo! partnership it has never been a better time to jump on the most exciting ride of your career.
The Paid Search problem space encompasses some of the biggest & most comprehensive problems in Computer Science (Machine Learning, Data Mining, Business Intelligence, Large Scale Distributed Computing, Geographical Scale, Service Deployment and Management); Mathematics (Optimizations, Probability Theory); Economics & Business (Auction Theory, Audience Intelligence, and Behavioral Targeting). To address this large problem space, we are building a world class team that continually delivers innovation through collaborative execution. You will do work in the top tier of Internet scale services where our engines deliver in the thousands of requests per second.
We are looking for an experienced SDET Lead that has been operating as a lead already and almost ready to make that jump to the Senior band. As part of the Infrastructure team, you will be managing projects that contribute the foundational pieces to the delivery engine. We have projects that work with the databases that contain the entire corpus of ads in AdCenter. We write the interfaces that serve as the communication layers between machines. We implement highly advanced and efficient data structures that allow us to load massive amounts of data in memory in a distributed fashion. Our team integrates with the Sciences teams to deploy their algorithms into the framework. We are building the next wave of the Ads monetization engine.
The position demands that the lead be able to understand the technical details of complex systems and can write object oriented code. Highly scalable systems and services knowledge is a definite plus, however, it is not absolutely required to fill the requirements of this position. If you consider yourself as intellectually sharp, can pick up new concepts quickly, work well with people, good with coordination and organization, love to develop people, have excellent motivational and communication skills, we’d love to talk to you.
