What we do
Our work at CSE spans across multiple industries (for example healthcare, automotive, manufacturing, finance and government) and multiple technical domains (for example IoT, big data, machine learning, distributed systems, DevOps pipelines and large scale cloud apps).
In your new role, you would be working as a software engineer or a tech lead in initiatives similar to our earlier work in for example helping prevent rhino poaching, increasing use of autonomous vehicles at car factories and building an open source community around managing enterprise Kubernetes clusters.
Our customers are Microsoft’s most strategic customers. Success for us is not just about our customer deploying our work into production but also about us sharing our principles, expertise and feedback.
This helps customers transform their engineering practices and optimize their software delivery processes. It also enables Microsoft’s product engineering teams to improve our products and services based on customer feedback.

Depending on the scenario we work with Azure platform as a service products (for example Functions, Azure Kubernetes Service, CosmosDB, Eventhub, Azure DevOps ) or opt for open source alternatives.
