Software Design Engineer (SDE)

Writes product code and solves complex problems. Proficient in C/C++.

“You come in every morning and check up on what you’ve built the night
before, see if you’ve broken anything, or if you’ve got any bugs to take
care of. Right now I’m working on three different design features, so
I’ve got maybe three status meetings a week to check in with
everybody–the testers, the developers, the Program Managers, and
together we figure out what we need to do. The core of my job is
designing new features and figuring out how to get them to work. I loved
that you could pursue an idea seriously in college and have other people
around to talk to about it. I wanted to stay in a place like that. And
Microsoft turned out to be that place.”

Qualifications: A 4 year BA/BS or a graduate degree in computer science
or related technical discipline. Strong coding skills, proficiency in
C/C++, vision, and a passion for technical excellence.

Software Design Engineer in Test (SDET)

Creates tools to test and improve products. Proficient in C/C++.

So what exactly is it?

A Software Design Engineer in Test is a developer who designs, develops,
and maintains automation systems-often expandable suites containing
multiple automation programs-to be used by the development and test
teams. They are responsible for utilizing innovative test technologies
to develop a product’s testing strategy, and for facilitating the
creation and execution of automated test suites across a diverse set of
technologies. They look at source code for potential problems using
Microsoft internal tools. They also reproduce, debug, and isolate
problems, and verify fixes.

Qualifications: A 4 year BA/BS or graduate degree in computer science,
electrical engineering or related technical discipline. Strong coding
skills, proficiency in C/C++, Visual Basic experience, and a relentless
attention to detail.
