Job ID: 810872-94054
Division: Microsoft Office Division
We're seeking talented engineers to join our Infrastructure Services team. You'll be expected to build stable, robust systems to support a diverse and rapidly evolving domain. The Infrastructure Services team at Yammer builds services to accelerate and scale engineering. The team wields a wide range of knowledge on services that power the backend, frontend, and infrastructure-specific components. The team has worked on developer environments, scaling backend storage, full-fledge features within Rails, to standalone services that help accelerate engineering tasks. Infrastructure Engineers work throughout the entire stack, from highly concurrent backend components to the interfaces engineers interact with every day.
Engineers at Yammer believe that the things that separate a great engineer from a merely adequate one, are passions, goals, character and personality; not specific technical skills. Engineering is here to move the business forward. Engineers whose personal passions are aligned with what we're trying to accomplish are the ones most likely to be happy here and to help us succeed.
Stuff we have built:
oHelp build and maintain Yammer?s infrastructure services.
oIdentify scaling bottlenecks and propose solutions.
oContribute to open-source.
oResearch, test, benchmark and evaluate new technology.
oSolve the types of mysteries which only occur at high scale.
oAbility to adapt. An ideal candidate will have a knack for solving a broad range of problems using a wide array of technologies.
oHave experience building and operating scalable, distributed systems. We serve more than 4 million users (and growing?rapidly) with no patience for slow, flaky services when it comes to the tools they need to do their job.
oHave experience in developing REST-based web services. Sound API design and knowledge of HTTP principles is vital to providing robust, easily consumed services for the rest of the company.
oJava (including Jersey)
oRuby (including Rails & Sinatra)
oMustache, ERB, and Freemarker templates
oVagrant and VirtualBox
oScaling web applications
Other things we use:
