Are you passionate about building cool devices and technologies? The Surface Team focuses on building devices that fully express the Windows vision. A fundamental part of our strategy is having desirable and powerful devices that enable the experiences people want and elicit their excitement. Creating these devices involves a close partnership between hardware and software engineers, designers, and manufacturing. We are currently building the next generation and Surface needs you!


Roles and Responsibilities

The Surface team is seeking qualified candidates for SDET/Engineer positions in the Design Verification team to work on our next generation Surface. You will be responsible for the design verification, characterization, tuning and qualification of Surface devices. You will develop comprehensive verification and characterization strategies and plans that bridge high-level use cases to product architecture/design to effectively and systematically reveal and screen out defects. The Engineer provides critical analysis of data and drives the right solutions, design changes, optimizations and trade-offs in the context of business priorities. On a frequent basis, you will create and introduce innovative test techniques and methods to ensure robust product qualification. You will also lead test strategy discussions, develop test methodologies and plans, execute test procedures, and project-manage qualification cycles.

The engineer will work in a fast-paced environment and will need to demonstrate the ability to learn new technologies, make progress quickly and with the maturity to identify and fill gaps. Candidates must enjoy working collaboratively with development, program management, software engineers, and partner teams. This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated engineer with a passion for integrated experiences to thrive in a small team environment. This person will ensure we deliver the complete end-to-end hardware and software experiences that delight our customers. The ideal candidate would be an engineer with a Major in CS and Minor in EE.

The Candidate Will

  • Be responsible for all aspects of test engineering and validation of their features, with opportunities to stretch more broadly. This will include working closely with software and hardware developers and program managers to create solid core designs and enable testability of the products.
  • Develop new test architectures, methodologies, tools and comprehensive test plans. This includes documenting test architecture, test plans and test cases.
  • Conduct technical reviews throughout the development process. This would include reviews of the test architecture, test plans, test cases, and results.
  • Create appropriate test automation for all aspects of assigned features including core scenarios, performance, reliability, and stress.
  • Work on new devices at various stages of hardware development including proto-type hardware.
  • Drive defect reproduction and analysis, study of data produced from static and dynamic code analysis tools, and participate in specification reviews, design reviews, and code reviews.
  • Drive test analysis through test suite code coverage and data analysis tools.
  • Identify product risk areas and mitigate them through targeted testing.
