I started at Microsoft 11 years ago as a contractor and was brought on as an FTE a year later. Starting as a contractor was a great way to get my foot in the door – and now I want to provide that same opportunity to some of you. (You can read my story in my “How to get a job at Microsoft“ post)
I’m now the Dev Manager for the Creative Asset Management Platform (Image, Text, Video) within the Microsoft Advertising Platform. The images and videos in ads that you see on Bing…they come from our stack.
I just got approval to hire 5 vendors to help us improve the quality of our stack, implement features and improve the way we work. You may think that hiring more people late in the game will only cause more issues and you are right, but I’ve been asking for budget for months and just finally got approval.
The contract starts immediately and will last until the end of June. You’ll be working along side some of the best of the best devs doing full stack development work. You can be a UI specialist or a Storage specialist, anywhere in between or all of the above.
We are in the process of moving everyone to VS2013, Visual Studio Online and Git. Technology-wise we are moving to Angular on the front end and full Azure stack on the backend with C#, MVC and Azure Service Bus. We also took on a bunch of DevOps work – so if that is your thing you can help with that as well.
I will personally look at each resume submitted, but won’t respond to 3rd party agencies.
- Back End Devs: C#, MVC, Storage (Azure, SQL)
- DevOps: Azure, PowerShell, MVC
- 5+ Years of Experience in similar roles
- Team player
- VSO+Git – Huge Plus
No agencies. No visa sponsorships. No remote workers. You must be local to Bellevue, Washington. If not, then all relocation expenses will need to be self-funded. You need to be here in our office every weekday. This is not a contract-to-hire position, but if you are a great engineer then that will likely happen at some point. No promises.
Send me your resume and I’ll be in touch: http://blog.jongallant.com/p/contact.html
