Job Category: Software Engineering: Development Location: Hyderabad, IN Job ID: 791285-78993 Division: Server & Tools Business
We are in the midst of an inflection point in the computing industry - a move from the traditional client-server design pattern, to one around connected devices and continuous services (essentially the cloud design point). This is a once in a generation shift, and is naturally a big opportunity for all in the computing industry or those who want to change the world with innovative ideas. Microsoft has been the industry leader which democratized server computing, and today 75% of Intel based servers run the Windows Server operating system. The shift to the cloud design point, and the fact the cloud runs on servers, provides Microsoft another fantastic opportunity to lead the industry with innovation and value, and we are well poised for it. The Server and Tools division has a strong strategy to cloud optimize every business, providing a deep and broad platform for our customers, and to offer the cloud to customers in their own terms. As our customers bet on on-premise IT, private cloud, and public cloud for specific business needs and services, Microsoft will offer a seamless set of technology and management choices that will provide the best options.
The STB organization is IDC is indeed a microcosm of this opportunity that Microsoft is betting on. We have three focus areas - namely, Azure Application Platform Development, Developer Tools, and Server and Management technologies - that will allow the India Development center to bring innovations for Microsoft in the area of public cloud, private cloud, and insuring that the technologies around management and application development allow a seamless experience for ustomers across the full spectrum of cloud computing. Engineers in these focus areas will build several features and services, each of which will be a top bet for Microsoft, and each is an opportunity for the team to have an industry leading impact.
If you fancy the desire to come to work every day with the frame of mind that you are working on a technology that is “the” bet for a company like Microsoft, and is an opportunity for you to build it as “the” industry leading technology, then the STB group at IDC is the right choice for you. The world of cloud computing is still very nascent, and Microsoft will take it forward in a manner that will provide a new perspective for our customers. This provides you an opportunity to not only to bring revolutionary experiences to the world, but also to be part of building engineering systems and frameworks that will be necessary for providing such services and features at the cloud scale. You will have an opportunity to work closely with some of the best engineers in the country who have already bet on this vision, and you too will have an opportunity to shape history, and stake a claim for changing the industry. Come join the team where the service you work on, the engineering systems that you build, or the foresight you demonstrate in building synergies across the focus areas will truly help Microsoft cloud optimize every business.
