Principal Software Engineer

Microsoft Canada

This is a Full-time position in Chatham, ON posted July 18, 2021.

Cybercrime and malware is a big business with annual profits of more than one trillion dollars.

Every year more than two hundred thousand unique pieces of malware are created and released.

Combatting all these threats while still meeting our customers’ expectations for system performance and reliability requires a talented and dynamic engineer who is passionate about performance and keeping our customers safe, regardless of OS.

As a software engineer focusing on performance on the Defender engine team, you will be responsible for ensuring that Defender achieves the lowest possible system impact while still keeping our customers safe.

Malware attempts to exploit every protocol, format, or technology that runs on a device.

Regardless of whether the attack is via firmware, network protocols, archive formats, document formats, or file system quirks to name a few, the engine you help build must be able to detect and prevent the attack with the least possible system impact.
