    Software Development Engineer (I, II, Snr) - Online Advertising Platform

    Have you ever considered relocating to the U.S.? Do you want to work on technology at the heart of online monetization?  Advertising R&D drives the revenue for Microsoft’s Online Services Group which includes the Bing search engine and the MSN content portals. The Advertising R&D group is building the next generation of online advertising technologies.

    Simply put, digital advertising offers a huge business opportunity that is fundamentally a computer science challenge; a perfect fit for Microsoft. The capabilities of digital advertising have resulted in enormous growth in recent years, from literally zero in the mid 90’s to a $44 billion dollar business worldwide today.  Advertising, and digital advertising in particular, is being transformed by software. Just as the personal computer brought computing capabilities to a billion people and business around the world, the modern digital ad platform is bringing highly effective advertising to millions of business around the world. However, all of these new capabilities require a great deal of software technology to make it all work.

    Advertising R&D is made up of several teams working on various aspects of this challenge. Those teams include:

    The Applications team is developing cutting edge Advertiser and Publisher Tools for the Microsoft Advertising Platform.

    The Ad-Platform Delivery Engine team builds and manages high-performance, high-availability systems that serve over 7 trillion ad impressions a year and we focus on delivering the right ad to the right person at the right time

    The AdCenter BI Core team is working to build the best of the class distributed data processing, storage and reporting platform to enable analyses and reporting of the high volume data.

    AdCenter Display team develops technologies running our online advertising technology powering the MSN portal businesses. Our systems collectively handle several hundreds of billions monthly ad requests across globally dispersed data centers supporting multi billion dollars in annual ad revenue.

    If you are the kind of person who loves the challenge of building large fault tolerant distributed systems on unreliable hardware, where anything can fail at any time, this group might be for you. We are looking for Software Development Engineers with broad and strong technical skills, excellent communication and leadership skills with the passion and dedication to work hard and do whatever it takes to succeed.
    A successful candidate will have background in some of the following areas:
    - Strong technical skills (C++, C#)
    - Experience in building online services
    - High Performance / Multithreaded/ Multicore Processing experience
    - User Experience, Applications or API level development experience
    - Strong Algorithm and Data Structure development experience
    - Great communication skills, team work and cross team collaboration
    - B.S. in Computer Science, and at least 2-3 years working in the software industry shipping products/services
