Microsoft Corporation Software Engineer (Engineering Agility, MicroServices, Experimentation) in Oslo, Norway

Engineering Agility: Software Engineering

The mission of the Engineering Agility team in FAST - MDCN is to increase developer productivity and engineering efficiency while enabling agile development and the ability to innovate rapidly, deliver continuously and iterate fast based on customer driven insights.

We are doing this in close collaboration with Microsoft?s initiative on One Engineering System (1ES), the Visual Studio and the Azure groups. This team is creating solutions to help developer teams move their code base to Git and break monoliths into microservices and components. At the same time, we are developing the infrastructure and setting best practices for continuous delivery to the Cloud, getting necessary telemetry about usage, performance and reliability in order to iterate rapidly. We enable the engineers to do feature toggle and experimentation, A/B testing etc. We are building a robust data pipeline to support deep analysis of the engineering metadata, insights and visualization of engineering data, to deliver a competitive modern engineering system and best practices around it.

We are measuring success by ensuring our fellow developers are happy and effective, our millions of customers are able to get our innovation safely and rapidly and the engineering teams can produce meaningful features based on data.
