The Mailbox Migration team is looking for a self-motivated and experienced software engineer to work on one or more of the following components owned by our team:
Mailbox Replication Service, which schedules and moves mailboxes, typically to onboard or offboard them to our Cloud or to balance load within it.
Mailbox Synchronization to replicate data in near real time between our Cloud and the master copy hosted by a 3rd party provider, such as an on-premise Exchange installation, Gmail or a generic IMAP host.
Mailbox Migration: to move whole sets of mailboxes into our Cloud.
Mailbox Load Balancing: to intelligently relocate mailboxes to smooth overall load within our datacenters.
These are hyperscale Cloud services involving billions of users across 100s of thousands of servers, so your skills in choosing the right data structures and algorithms will be challenged very heavily. Your responsibility will be to analyze, design and implement ways to improve the quality of service and develop new features to help customers use our services. The ideal candidate should have strong analytical, design, and development skills with depth in databases, storage, high performance data structures and algorithms and a passion for analyzing and improving performance - I/O, memory, CPU, concurrency. She/he should have a strong development background, excellent communication skills, and a strong foundation in Computer Science.
Lastly, because the work is done indirectly on behalf of a giant team, skills in persuasion are key to success.
