Location: Redmond, WA, US
Job ID: 747704-36268
Division: Corporate Research Development
The Technical Strategy and Incubation team is seeking a high achieving Principal Software Development Engineer Lead to lead the team in building a next generation UI/Graphics platform. This incubation team is chartered with pursuing strategic opportunities which are difficult to address incrementally with existing systems, such as UI responsiveness and security, rich applications that span devices, new web-centric programming models, and effective use of GPUs and many core.
The successful candidate is a Principal Software Development Engineer who is passionate about building next-generation technologies, enjoys startup environments, and loves to code. The candidate should have 5+ years’ management experience and 10+ years’ software engineering experience, ideally with experience in areas such as operating system or browser development.
Our team is a small hand-picked team of developers passionate about building real systems that extend the current thinking in Operating Systems and Platform technology. The Technical Strategy and Incubation team has the unique aspect of being outside of existing product groups, allowing us to pursue experimental ideas and solutions that may be impractical for existing products due to legacy demands and business commitments. This is a high visibility position with impact in the incubation, in the company, and in the overall market.
Because this is an incubation group, a candidate must have a high tolerance for uncertainty and changes in direction. Comfort with low-level systems development and expert proficiency in a C-like language are required. Additional desirable, but not mandatory, skills include familiarity with GPU programming and rendering techniques, numerical algorithms and geometry, asynchronous programming models, data parallelism, concurrency, data synchronization, data-driven UI frameworks, and real-time collaboration.
