Microsoft Azure is building the fastest network in public cloud. We are seeking candidates who live and breathe Linux, love to code, and who build network systems and services, taking things from idea to production. Join us as a Senior Software Engineer to build the world’s fastest public cloud and make a difference to millions of people across the planet. As a Linux developer in the network datapath team, you would be responsible for building, testing and deploying networking acceleration on Azure including SRIOV, DPDK for network appliances, Linux network acceleration, RDMA, containers, etc. You should be able to drive projects with other teams in Microsoft, our hardware partners and OS partners.
The Azure Networking Datapath team is where the rubber meets the road for Software-Defined Networking – we create the host platform that allows SDN controllers to perform arbitrary packet manipulations and virtualization, with very high speed. We build the Azure Virtual Switch where the action happens in software, and own the underlying hardware platform on the host that enables us to scale SDN as the network moves from 10Gbps, to 40Gbps, to 100Gbps!
Watch our director explain why Host SDN is at the forefront of the SDN revolution! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Kyoj3bKepY The datapath team created all the host network virtualization capabilities described, as well as the high speed RDMA platform mentioned here that scaled Azure Storage.
