Job description:

Do you have the passion, determination and perseverance to build ground-breaking productivity experiences which take advantage of the explosive growth of personal devices? The Emerging Devices team in the OXO Hub group is not like the rest of Microsoft. We're operating in a fast-paced startup-like environment to help make people more productive and happier by connecting smart phones, watches, IOT sensors, and devices to each other and the cloud in order to light up experiences that "just work" to make your life easier. We’re looking for smart, agile, and intellectually curious developers who love creating and building things that customers love, not to mention tinkering with all the latest cool devices and wearables.

You will be joining a young team within ASG’s OXO Hub team - exploring territory on how wearables and other emerging devices can help people focus on what matters most on any device. We’re a small team without hard boundaries so you’ll be working across the whole stack - from hacking on iOS & Android apps, building Azure services, and utilizing all types of devices to help realize our vision. We’ve already shipped highly visible wearable projects in a very short time for Translator, Outlook and OneNote on both Android and iOS platforms.

Our team cares deeply about user empathy and the voice of the customer, so in addition to typical product engineering responsibility you’ll get the chance to learn how to be customer driven. Our team gets out in the real world and interacts with customers and partners continuously to prove what we are building will really make a difference and delight our users.

We are looking for a rock star developer to join our team to help us invent, develop, and launch the next big thing. If you have a deep entrepreneurial itch, a strong desire to found your own company or team someday, and like to control you own destiny - this is a perfect opportunity. This role doesn't have the ordinary developer hiring bar. You will need to demonstrate real entrepreneurial aptitude along with top-notch technical skills.

As a new team member joining on the ground floor of this team, you will have the opportunity to shape the culture and make significant impact in the rapidly growing emerging devices space for Microsoft and ASG. We are looking for candidates of all levels. We need passion and skill for user productivity. If you've written code for your own wearable or other smart device you know what we mean.

Requirements for the position: - BS in Computer Science or equivalent - Strong passion for delivering simple and elegant consumer experiences - 2+ years of commercial software development experience using C++, C#, Objective C, Swift or Java - Experience with cloud computing platforms and technologies - eg: Azure, HTML, and JavaScript - Experience shipping real iOS or Android apps - Strong problem solving and coding skills - Outstanding communication skills and comfortable in front of customers

Application instructions:

We are looking at candidates at all levels, so please apply if you feel that you are the best person for the role, even if the level is not right.
