In a Windows 8 Server-related job listing I ran across on Microsoft’s Careers site today, the Data Lifecycle Management (DLM) team is looking for a Software Design Engineer in Test (SDET) to, “…collaborate with many Windows teams to ship a quality backup solution in [the] Win 8 timeframe.” Also to quote, the DLM team has “…just released System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 (DPM) (Version 3 release) to a multi-billion dollar data protection market and are currently working on the Version 4 of the DPM Product and Windows Server 8 backup.”
The aforementioned are the juicy bits of the job ad, but here’s the full thing in its glory — should you be interested in possibly applying for it :
