Opportunities in the Project team

Many of you know that we have acquired UMT (http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2005/dec05/12-15PortfolioManagementToolsPR.mspx). Many of the members of the UMT development team have moved out here to Redmond to join the Project team. It has been very exciting to welcome everyone as they arrive from Romania. We are really looking forward to the work we’ll be able to do together.


Since our team is growing, we have a number of new openings and an SDET Lead opening on the Project test team.  If you're looking for a new opportunity, we're looking for several Software Design Engineers in Test.


Full Description:

Come join the Microsoft Office Project Team to help make Microsoft live Project Management, make global Fortune 500 companies rely on it, and make 100 million people love it.


Now is your chance to get in on the ground floor.  We have a number of both senior and entry level openings on the team and are looking for the best and brightest.  If you know Win32, C#, ASP.Net or other web-based technologies, if you're a team player, if you can rattle off the bugs you see in the software products you use, and want to do something about it.


Successful candidates will need to be well-rounded; both technically competent and a strong tester in their own right.  The candidate will be a part of a highly trained team of application and server testers.  Project or Portfolio Management skills are a plus. If you know what a work breakdown structure is, or have working knowledge of the PMBOK scheduling field definitions and want to explore a new opportunity, I'd like to talk with you.


If you have experience with software testing methodologies – If you understand and can describe in detail how to approach testing software at the unit, function, and feature level, if you can write test automation, if you can test a server technology and understand the complexities of server scalability, if you're always thinking of a better more efficient way to do what you do, I'd like to talk with you.



Our Test Manager, Andy Seres, has done an excellent job with our test team. We have a group of very talented people who are making a huge impact in marking Project "12" a very high quality product. If you are interested in applying feel free to send me a message and I'll get you in touch with him. Thanks!
