In the last couple of years, both Xbox Live and PlayStation Network has seen their fair share of downtime. Obviously, there is no such thing as 100% up time but things can definitely be improved, and it seems that Microsoft are definitely striving to do so.

According to a job listing on Microsoft’s official career page, the company is looking for Service Engineer that believes in the motto, “the best outage is the one that you never had”? The candidate would need to take care of core infrastructure services, develop escalation points for troubleshooting and be well versed with common network terms such as DNS, RDG and WAP.

Another job listing indicates that The Halo Game Services team within Microsoft are working on strengthening the next generation of backend services that will be powering Halo 5: Guardians coming this fall. This will require the candidate to work on Windows Azure, Xbox Live, Multiplayer Matchmaking and other large scale deployment capable products that will be massively scalable, serviceable, reliable and extremely fast.
