We are looking for a Hardware Solutions Engineer to help design and deliver pre-integrated/deployed Microsoft validated solutions built on OEM hardware, Windows Server, System Center, and Windows Azure Pack. Our products must deliver on the promise of combining the efficiency and agility of cloud computing with increased control and customization achieved in virtualized, multi-tenant environments. We are constantly working to develop new, innovative solutions with our OEM partners that can scale from very small to very large deployments and are optimized for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS for Windows and Linux) and/or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) style deployments.

As a member of the team you will work with hardware suppliers to design rack and blade servers based on cutting edge processors, chipsets, memory and I/O technology. You will research components and architecture trends and line up those developments with software from other Microsoft teams that can take advantage of new hardware capabilities. You will work closely with multiple global teams both inside and outside of Microsoft spanning mechanical issues, supply chain & manufacturing, and hardware/software quality validation.

Job requirements include experience working across the hardware industry with the key ODM and OEM suppliers into the Enterprise channel. A deep understanding of hardware trends, cloud computing trends, and a familiarity with both Microsoft and non-Microsoft cloud computing solutions is required.
