    Job Description

    The vision of the Azure Production Infrastructure Engineering (PIE) group is to make it easy for everyone to create, consume, and manage planetary-scale, reliable cloud production services and infrastructure to achieve more. As a team, we bring together significant and complementary capabilities with tooling, infrastructure, monitoring and insights in new ways to increase our perspective. Our diversity of knowledge and experience comes together for the benefit of our users, our colleagues, our business, and ourselves.

    The Azure Performance Engineering team develops tools and services which measure and help to improve Azure performance. Our team is developing a large scale validation system for all of Azure. This service is used to simulate key customer workloads and run them in production and validation environments. We want to find both reliability and performance problems in the platform, and then we work with teams across Azure to root cause and address the issue. We partner with many teams in Azure compute to ensure new features are high quality and performant before they are released to customers. As part of this, we integrate and use new Azure platform features before they are released.

    You will be responsible for:
    • Designing and developing a large scale distributed system.
    • Running a service using DevOps practices.
    • Helping us to meet the scale and reliability objectives for our service.
    • Following security best practices to prevent unauthorized access.
    • Working with other teams in Azure to onboard new scenarios and customers.
    • Focusing on delighting our customers with a focus on simplifying the customer experience
    Our team moves quickly, designing and developing features and ship to production daily. We follow agile methodologies with a focus on efficiency, iterating quickly and failing fast. You will have an opportunity to work on different parts of the technology stack including C# backend services, web development, PowerShell scripting and SQL. Also, you will gain experience developing against many features of the Azure platform. On top of that, we perform competitive analysis of other clouds, so you will gain experience working with Amazon and Google's cloud platforms.

    This is a great opportunity to have a huge impact on the scalability and performance of all of Azure and ultimately helping Azure customers deliver more reliable systems. If you have a passion for performance and reliability of large scale cloud services, this could be a great opportunity for you!
