PRODUCT
The Microsoft Power Platform (Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agent, Power BI), is a rocket ship fueled by organizations across the globe investing in low-code/no-code development models to accelerate their digital transformation ambitions. Power Platform is a strategic new growth area for Microsoft, but more importantly, it is a disrupting technology. Power Platform gives “Citizen access” to a broad set of users in an enterprise, to create next generation business productivity software with a radically simplified development experience requiring minimal training. The platform will power the business applications and be the extensibility story for Office 365.
“With our Power Platform, we are enabling anyone with a big idea and the passion to make a difference to maximize their impact and transform their organization for the better.” – Satya Nadella
Power Apps is at the forefront of this growth curve for low-code app developers. Within Power Apps, the Studio group is responsible for enabling users to build Apps in most efficient ways with minimal efforts. The full-stack team is responsible for several Power Apps authoring services, app designers, Dataverse maker experiences, the power platform UX stack, and integrations with platform components.
Responsibilities
RESPONSIBILITIES
The PowerApps platform (part of Business Application Group) aims to be the platform of choice for building components that permit high productivity, intelligent and no-code nextgen application development. The platform empowers customers to easily customize, develop, and deploy business applications that work online and offline, for consumption on mobile devices and the web, without the need to write code. We integrate cutting edge AI technology in product for “low code\no-code” app developers to build app without compromising on extensibility for professional developer or data scientists. The platform will power the business applications, and be the extensibility story for all of Office 365.
PowerApps platform is a rapidly growing business at Microsoft. Dynamics 365 CE Apps (OOB 1st Party or ISV/Customer developed) are all powered by declarative metadata-driven Business Apps Platform that allows rapidly building (no-code to low-code) full-fledged applications via its range of customizations and extensions capabilities – from the Server tiers to the Client. All Business Apps experiences will be automatically surfaced by state-of-the-art declarative Client Infrastructure.
In PowerApps Studio team we are creating a new generation of app authoring experience of low code\no-code app development. Our goal is to make app building easy, fun and collaborative effort that delight app makers. This comes with technical challenges of distributed compute and integrating AI experiences at scale that delight customers. The Studio framework is designed to seamlessly facilitate the paradigm of “Build Once, Deploy Everywhere” – that is, any and every aspect of a Business App will be reproduced in full fidelity across all the expected user client surfaces. All this is made possible by an extremely rich metadata driven framework that helps drive a consistent experience from browsers to devices and online to offline, delivering a fully responsive design that responds to various form factors and windows sizes – including embedded and contextual experience in other popular productivity Apps.
We are a highly collaborative group, and everyone's ideas and contributions count. As a software engineer on the team, you will be responsible for the design, development and maintenance of end to end experiences of Power Platform large-scale services and accountable for the features from development to production, focusing on automated tests to enable continuous delivery at scale, with a quality first mindset. This is an agile, data-driven and fast-paced environment, where engineers are empowered to innovate and take ideas from concept to scale.
This is an exciting time to join PowerApps where we are innovating and rethinking what Business Apps fundamentally are about and how best to experience them to maximize business productivity. We aim to build the best-in-class reliable Business Apps SaaS service that is natively built on Microsoft’s Azure cloud infrastructure. This is a great opportunity to work on something highly strategic to Microsoft and be at the cutting edge of innovation.
