The Team

Lift London, based in Paddington, is home to a growing collective of world-class artists, software engineers, designers and creative technologists. We are a globally focused creative studio designing and developing the future of how people interact with Microsoft’s devices and services, via desktop, mobile, VR and AR.

Recently we shipped Paint 3D as part of the Windows 10 Creator’s Update, but that’s just the beginning. We have grand plans for how we’re going to evolve it and deliver new experiences and are looking for people who want to join us in our mission to bring 3D to everyone and inspire a new generation of Windows users.

The Role

We’re looking for a very experienced passionate engineer to join our team and drive innovative and creative experiences across our platforms. We're looking for candidates with many years of experience developing engaging experiences in apps or games, particularly ones that are user experience focused.

We want to find the sort of engineer who produces high quality code that is robust and extensible and will naturally influence the rest of the team to produce better solutions. They should be able to work with a creative team to get good requirements and find creative solutions, establishing architecture, estimating then delivering against a schedule. They will be trusted to own whole areas of a product from ideation to seeing it in a customer’s hands and be expected to drive an ongoing technical roadmap.

You’ll be working in a small, multidisciplinary team that creates products that delight users with great functionality, new technologies and interaction models. We want you to care about developer efficiency and help us to make us as good at developing software on an ongoing service basis as we can be.
