Have you ever wanted to be an integral part of building a big data search and analytics solution? Have you ever dreamed that you could re-invent the way people explore big data? 

Reinventing the way people interact with big data is happening NOW in the Kusto team. 


The team started as a small incubation 8 years ago and has already made a lot of buzz with Microsoft, offering a new solution for exploring and analyzing log data which is based on new disruptive technology. The list of customers for its solution, Azure Data Explorer, already includes thousands of customers and is constantly expanding.  


We are looking for strong and motivated Full Stack developers to help us continue driving the Kusto revolution and build the real time analytics workload in Microsoft Fabric on top of it. Microsoft Fabric is an all-in-one analytics solution designed for enterprises. It covers everything from data movement to data science, Real-Time Analytics, and business intelligence.

The platform is built on a foundation of Software as a Service (SaaS), which takes simplicity and integration to a whole new level. Microsoft Fabric brings together new and existing components from Power BI, Azure Data Explorer, and Azure Data Factory into a single integrated environment.  



As a Software Engineer in the team, you will help us deliver highly scalable services and world-class product experiences.  You will have opportunities to work on multiple layers of the technology stack, ranging from customer-focused user experience work, building scalable distributed cloud services, working with big data, and everything in between. You will collaborate with team members and other engineering groups in Microsoft to build full stack web applications and services using the latest web technologies in a dynamic and agile environment. You will be part of a fun-loving, diverse team that seeks challenges, loves learning and values teamwork.
