Our team, Commercial Software Engineering, works side by side with customers on new tech. We are here to pave the way for our products and our customers. We don't charge customers for what we do and the results we've produced put us in high demand. We MacGyver our way using Microsoft products and open source software to accelerate our customers, engineering things that have never been done before. We push innovation back into the product groups. Our motto is "We ship when we share". If you like variety, coding in many languages, using any available tech across our industry, digging in with our customers, hackfests, occasional travel, and telling the story of what you've done in blog posts and at conferences, then come talk to us.
We are very community focused in our work, with one foot in Microsoft and one foot in the open source communities that we help. We make pull requests on open source projects to add support for Microsoft platforms and/or improve existing implementations. We build frameworks and other tools to make it easier for developers to use Microsoft platforms. We source all the ideas for this work by maintaining very deep connections with these communities and the customers and partners that use them. As a member of our team you will thrive in working with a variety of technologies; not just Microsoft technology. We code with Xcode, Java, node.js, Python, C#, C, C++, R, and anything else that will solve the business problem. We work on Windows, MacOS, Raspbian, Android, iOS, blockchain, ML, Mixed Reality and of course we love Azure. We encourage our engineers to dig into AWS, GCP, TensorFlow, etc. so we can meet our customers where they are at and build the best solution possible. We build innovative solutions to solve exciting business problems using code-with activities, and technology that fits within the boundaries established by the customer. Whenever possible we take our learnings back to the product teams so they can make better products.
