Meet our Critical Environment Technicians

Datacenters are part of everyday life. Whenever you open an app on your phone, join a virtual classroom or meeting, snap and save photos, or play a game with your friends online, you are using a datacenter. As the need for online cloud services grows, Microsoft is expanding its datacenter presence, driving the need for more skilled workers. We aim to hire people from the local communities to work at our datacenters.

One of the most common datacenter roles in our operations team, is a Critical Environment Technician (CET). These experts oversee a datacenter’s critical infrastructure—cooling, power, security, and more—to ensure all equipment stays online all the time. Their responsibilities include equipment setup, security, emergency response, and documentation. Working alongside IT teams, they play a vital role in maintaining the critical infrastructure that keeps our datacenters up and running.
