Job Descriptions

  • The Microsoft device ecosystem is evolving rapidly. The natural, ambient, and context-aware experiences that the Intelligent Cloud and Intelligent Edge enables requires a constant flow of updates to keep the edge up to date and secure.  This includes frequent update of AI that powers inference at the edge and in the cloud.

  • Ensuring windows devices are update-to-date and secure is at the core of Windows as a Service (WaaS).
  • As we’ve evolved our Windows Update capability for a SaaS delivery model, we’ve learned how important it is for the update experience to harmonize with our mission to empower users to be more productive. User experience and productivity is materially impacted when updates go wrong, when updates aren’t coordinated, or when updates aren’t installed in a timely manner.  This is as true on PCs and Macs as it is on digital signs, security cameras, connected vehicles and other IoT device workloads.

We believe in being experimental, learning constantly, being scrappy while bringing order to disorder, helping each other as humans and professionals to be our best possible selves. We believe great ideas come from a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and cognitive styles.
  • We actively create an environment where everyone’s ideas can be heard and can contribute toward a much better end result. We live and breathe Microsoft’s mission to empower every single person and organization on the planet to achieve more.


  • Translate customer demand signals into release priorities, and ensure business growth
  • Engage directly with customers, ISV’s and SI’s, at the CIO/CTO level, supporting executive briefings and innovation partnerships.
