Azure Compute is responsible for building the next generation(s) of highly scalable Datacenters that provide containers, virtual machines and bare metal services. Given the growth of our datacenters we are always investigating in new hardware and software solutions to meet our scale and customer demand.
The Azure New Technology (ANT) team is looking ahead at future Cloud technologies, both hardware and software, and we are investigating and enabling those for our datacenter use. A good example of what we do is the development and deployment of ARM 64-bit Servers in our datacenters. This is a multi-year effort that consists of deep partnership engagements with multiple silicon companies, including collaborating on future hardware designs and software enablement. We are a very hands-on team with deep technical expertise in silicon, systems, operating systems (Windows and Linux) and application stacks.Responsibilities
We are looking for people who have a broad skillset, people who are willing to continuously learn new things, and people who are willing to jump in anywhere to help the project move forward. Specifically, we are looking for software engineer (for ARM64 hardware), who can port and optimize workloads, create or run benchmarks, debug platform wide software, firmware or hardware and provide feedback to silicon partners.
This is an opportunity to work in a strong talent dense team that supports, empowers, and challenges you to grow. You’ll get access to the latest cutting-edge hardware and software, often years ahead of the rest of the industry, and in many cases, you can shape these future designs by working closely with our silicon partners and software teams.Qualifications
