Have you ever wanted to work for Bing? Maybe to work for the Bing Webmaster Tools team? Getting knee-deep in data, in product development, in building things that impact sites all around the world? Before you get excited, there are some things to know about the job.
First off, you’ve got to be a software engineer for this job. No fakin’ it folks, you’ve got to be an actual engineer. If you’ve recently left the shuttle program, drive a diesel-electric train, build bridges or spend months under the ocean in a submarine…wrong engineer.
Ask yourself this question if you’re still nodding after that first point: am I good with a jack-hammer…? In reality it won’t matter, as we’ll have the tools (and you’ll help build more) to do the deep, big-data mining we’re after.
Next up, you’ve got to be equipped with the fancy stuff, like knowing HTML5. For you this is old news, while much of the world still hasn’t heard about it! And how about jquery? Maybe a background in machine learning?
You’ve got to have the right mindset for this work, too. When we present data, businesses make decisions on that data. Getting it right the first time is the goal every time.
To further narrow the pool a bit, we’re also looking for all of that rolled into a cracker-jack SEO. You see, the team that launched the latest version of webmaster tools here at Bing are SEOs themselves. Naturally, we want more SEOs on the team!
Now, if all that isn’t enough to entice you to update your resume and submit an application, well, you should also keep in mind that we build tools that matter. We partner with millions of websites globally and we hit the press, so you’ll be directly responsible for helping Bing chart its future success.
If this sounds like you, or you know someone who it does sound like, hit this link for the job posting.
…and to answer the obvious question…the job is based in Bellevue, WA. You’ll be face-to-face with us on a daily basis, integrated tightly into this fantastic group!
Come join our team and help create the next generation of class-leading Webmaster Tools!
