What if your job description were simply "Empower every person and every organization to achieve more?" That's the essence of roles within our MS Maps & Geospatial Team. Every day, we bring an insatiable curiosity to the table, challenging ourselves to reimagine what is and what can be. We build on what's come before to create what's next. We drive machine intelligence and massive data processing. We help shape the future. We empower billions of people on the planet.
Do you want to be a part of the team working towards positioning Microsoft as the market leader in Map experience? Are you excited about transforming Bing Map into the destinations of choice for users trying to find map information, navigate and get location-specific recommendations?
Enabling good Map experience at scale represents momentous challenge. Very often one has to resort to using large scale machine learning algorithms to mine, normalize, conflate, classify and ingest the enormous quantity of map data into index and to match it to user queries in real time. Our Maps Team is building an end-to-end VNext Map Data Pipeline to support rich Map experiences. We are looking for new talents to join us on this exciting journey.
