Perfection not required
Excited about this role, but not sure if you meet 100% of the criteria? Employers would still love to hear from you.

Microsoft's Cloud and AI division is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to work with us on the next generation of developer services and tools which promote the use of open source software. Software developers are the productivity workforce of the future. With the developer tools & services market quickly growing and evolving, we have a unique opportunity to help shape internal engineering practices at Microsoft and the broader industry in open source consumption. While open-source software is core to modern software development, consuming open source components can expose teams to risk (security vulnerabilities, legal risk, etc.). We must enable our customers to be secure in their use of open source components through a frictionless experience which protects their codebase from unwanted side-effects. #1ES

You will also be part of the effort to transform our engineering system here at Microsoft, spearheading a shift in how we look at consuming open-source software at enterprise-scale. We are looking for talented engineers who are excited about working on large-scale problems, can adapt and learn new technologies to deliver innovative software solutions to tough business requirements. As a member of the team, you will own development across the stack by designing and architecting experiences which delight our customers and will use data to make informed decisions about how we approach our work. If you are interested in being a part of an agile team that’s bringing software development into the modern age, come join us!
