The Visual Studio product line brings rich client experiences together with cloud services to create developer experiences for building next generation applications targeting devices across multiple platforms (Android, iOS, and Windows) and cloud services, providing world class debugging and diagnostics tools to developers. Visual Studio is used by millions of developers each day and yet we are just starting to get a understanding of product usage, product health in the real world and the developers that use it.


Our business depends on a data-driven, customer-obsessed approach to validate that the customer experiences are world class. As such, we expect to invest in tools and engineering systems to help collect, ingest, analyze and visualize data, deeply understand customers, engage with them to understand their needs, and invest in other efforts that will help us assess value and also deliver insights into these experiences. We use big data, create data services and web technologies to build data experiences at cloud scale. We use both proprietary and open source technologies, develop innovative engineering solutions to solve hard technical problems, and forge into new and unknown territories. We create systems to stitch product telemetry from client applications & services to tell the story about how customers are using our products. We are building our capability to derive insights from product telemetry and customer feedback to drive our business on a cloud cadence. We’re evolving our team to become a data driven organization; join us and you’ll have the opportunity to play a pivotal role in this transformation.
