Job Description:

Are you an engineer who would love to work on large scale projects for one of the most exciting and diverse divisions in the company? Are you looking for big, creative challenges that show immediate results, given your customers will be just down the virtual hall? Do you want to be at the core of it all, acting as a force multiplier enabling hordes of engineers to do their best work? If so, we have the perfect job for you!

The Experiences + Devices division spans Office client applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint; Online services like the Office Web Apps, Exchange, SharePoint; and other key Microsoft properties like Microsoft Teams, Surface, Bing, Edge, and Yammer! Within this organization, the Office Engineering System has both a focus on Office, as well as leading several initiatives across the broader division. Most of our products ship across multiple platforms and devices - Win32, Universal, Android, iOS, Mac, and Linux, and our team's charter is to build a shared engineering infrastructure for all of these platforms. There are teams working on applications that have been around for decades, and there are teams working on v1 products. We are the team that brings order to this diverse set of technical work and keeps it running efficiently by developing tools and systems that scale well and are consistent, reliable, robust, and easy to use.

As we grow, one of the biggest challenges before us is ensuring that every line of code we write is secure, be it product code or the code used to build the engineering system itself. We believe that engineers write secure code when writing secure code is easy. The new Engineering Systems Security team is dedicated to the mission of developing tools, infrastructure, and processes that make writing secure code in the Experiences and Devices division easy. By making the secure solution the obvious solution, the ES security team will empower our developers to usher us into the next stage of engineering at Microsoft.

The Engineering Systems Security team is a v1 greenfield team homed in the Office Engineering System organization but scoped to all of Experiences + Devices. While guided by the goals above, you will be blazing a new path for this space, helping define, shape, and realize the vision.

The Engineering Manager role involves managing a team of high-caliber Software Engineers: ensuring project and development excellence, career development and support, and a strong team culture of customer passion, collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and belonging. The role requires a strong ability to partner across organizations and divisions and presents an opportunity to help define and deliver the vision and technical strategy for improving our engineering systems while incrementally delivering solutions along the way.

The ideal candidate for this role has strong customer passion, bias for action, and deep engineering experience in architecting and delivering cloud services. People management experience is expected - we have a strong philosophy that great things in software only happen within high-functioning, high-trust, high-fun team environments.
