Group Engineering Manager

The Office Experience Organization (OXO) in IDC is looking for an experienced Group Engineering Manager to run the Web Experiences and Services Team. The team creates shared experiences, high-scale geo-distributed services and engineering systems to enable them. These services and experiences are behind the Office Web applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Visio that are part of the Office 365 suite.

As Group Engineering Manager, you will be directly leading a team of 50+ engineers and be part of the broader Office Shared Leadership team.

Working together with partners across Office (such as Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, Word, Visio) and other divisions of Microsoft, we are building and delivering the best-in-class Office Web applications that expand the reach of traditional Office client apps by supporting a wide range of browsers and platforms and ensuring that the engineering systems for web-development on top of Typescript/React can support the scale of thousands of engineers contributing to the web.

The team helps design, build and run all aspects of the shared high scale services including monitoring, scalability and reliability. We are gearing up to modernize our infrastructure services to achieve world class scalability and reliability. We seek to build on the site reliability principles to understand distributed systems and high-scale services.
