Are you interested in the cloud business and enabling Linux OSS workloads? The Microsoft Azure Platform is strategic to Microsoft enabling customers, ISVs, and Microsoft IT to develop, test, and deploy solutions in the cloud to take advantage of economies of scale, reliability, globally distributed data centers, and generally reduce the effort of managing dedicated IT infrastructure. Azure is a growing leader in the cloud market with Azure Support enabling customer success and providing a key differentiator when customers make buying decisions.
Azure Linux Support is a strategic unit of Customer Support Services (CSS) responsible for the following:
The definition and implementation of the support services required to win in the cloud marketplace.
Resolving customer issues including complex technical scenarios integrating several cloud capabilities and scenarios supporting the service such as service availability, quality, outage management, subscription management, correlation of usage and charges, and cost efficient solution architecture.
Provide critical product feedback to multiple Engineering Groups
Lead the integration of CSS talent to resolve Azure Linux issues as part of the Azure Support ecosystem.
Engaging with customers running heterogeneous operating systems (Linux, Windows) on Azure Infrastructure Services.
The opportunity for you is to be part of the evolution of Azure and cloud support services, to be constantly challenged as the Platform expands to provide broader capabilities to customers, support customers using a service rather than on-premises products, and to work in collaboration with multiple Microsoft teams inside CSS and Engineering (Product Group).
