Microsoft Corporation Software Engineer II in Boston, Massachusetts

Are you passionate about leveraging platform capabilities based on Web Standards within modern browsers (Chromium Edge, Chrome, Safari…) to build for the modern web?

How about reimagining the design system used by engineering teams across organizations and across front-end frameworks to deliver a performant and consistent experience leveraging Web Components (FAST Element)?

We are creating a new generation of Microsoft commerce experiences. If you love the modern web, have outstanding attention to detail, a passion for creating experiences that delight users, and a strong collaborative spirit, then you are a perfect fit for our team! This is an exciting opportunity to leverage your deep technical skills to create new features alongside a great team, and to influence the product's direction.

We are hiring an experienced Software Engineer to help us deliver services and experiences for empowering Microsoft’s developer and partner ecosystem to be successful. In this position, you will be part of a fun-loving, diverse team that seeks challenges, loves learning and values teamwork. You will collaborate with team members and partners to build a new design system based on web-components, contribute to full stack web applications using latest web technologies in a dynamic and agile environment, and have opportunities for mentorship, career growth, and work on high-business impact areas.



Successful candidates will exhibit various attributes which will enhance their ability to succeed in this position.

Collaboration - As most development is about working with others, both within an immediate team, as well as across business units and portions of the company, an ability to collaborate effectively is a core competency to have.

Customer Focus - A focus on delivering customer value, and being able to directly tie engineering decisions and actions to that value is a huge plus for successful engineers at any level.

Drive For Results - Being able to drive for results, not merely finding the boundary of your responsibility, but following a problem through to its conclusion, to solve it once and for all, is a skill and ability which a successful engineer should exhibit.

Technical Excellence - Core to being a software engineer is of course technical excellence. This is not merely knowing the latest and greatest language developments, but demonstrating a passion for technology, a curiosity to ‘go deep’, and an ability to quickly learn and build upon past experiences, to be able to extrapolate from those experiences, and deliver innovations. Technical excellence is rooted in having a strong demonstrable aptitude for problem solving.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate this broad set of attributes well.

We are looking for a Software engineer that has:

  • Strong problem solving, design, coding, and debugging skills.

  • Solid written and verbal communication skills.

  • Track record of delivering products, features and functionality on time, at extremely high quality.

  • Self-driven, pro-active, results-oriented and ability to work with minimal direction.

  • Ability to work closely with team members to collaborate on innovative solutions.

  • Ability to perform debugging across multiple components / services.

  • Comfortable writing tests as they write code: we aim for quality and stability in finite increments.

  • Ability to quickly ramp up on new technology areas.


Required Qualifications:

• Equivalent experience or BS/MS in Computer Science or equivalent field.

• 5+ years of software development experience with a focus on web client


• Strong HTML 5 and JavaScript expertise and familiarity with current UX


Preferred Qualifications:
