Our mission: To empower every developer and every development team on the planet to build great software faster. 


At Visual Studio, we work hard to understand what our customers need.  We talk with developers, we watch how teams work, and we use data to inform our experiments and decisions.  Will you join us and help craft amazing tools that improve how developers communicate, collaborate, and ship? 


We are looking for engineers who are adaptable and creative problem-solvers, and more importantly, are excited to be part of a team that values communication and supports each other.  We create solutions together in a rich, collaborative environment (think: small team rooms, not open floor plans).  We work hard together through the work day, and we value having time for family or hobbies in the evenings. 




We are looking for Developers that will build the core tooling of Visual Studio including the shell, editors, project systems, language services, designers, unit testing experiences, and all the other integrated IDE tools.
