Job Description

Do you believe software will eat the world? Do you "Always bet on JavaScript"? Are you an expert in TypeScript? Angular? React? Do you believe JavaScript is the most exciting programming language for cloud-native applications?

Microsoft aspires to empower every developer to be successful building applications and services, using any platform. We provide the best in class integrated development environments and code editors on Mac, Windows, and Linux, and the most comprehensive cloud platform, capable of scaling from the simplest to the most demanding global scale applications and services.

The TypeScript compiler and language service powers the modern web development experiences in Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, and Visual Studio for Mac when writing not only TypeScript, but also JavaScript, Node, Angular, React (and more!) applications. In fact, the power of TypeScript is one of the key reasons the latest Stack Overflow and State of JavaScript surveys put VS Code and TypeScript at the top of the most used, loved, and wanted tools and languages for modern developers.
