Microsoft Azure Stack is a hybrid cloud platform that lets customers deliver Azure services in their datacenters. Azure Stack brings the power of Azure to customers with unique security or compliance requirements, and enables new scenarios for modern applications such as edge and disconnected environments. Azure Stack is a unique hybrid cloud that runs on a variety of hardware configurations at smaller scale while still offering a useful subset of Azure services.

We are looking for solid developers with the passion to research new areas, write optimal code, enhance coding standards and ship fast. We follow short, frequent release cycles with room for innovation in multiple areas. As a team, we welcome smart, motivated engineers, with a positive attitude and growth mindset, ready to translate ambiguity into concrete elegant deliverables that move the needle for the customer.
