Microsoft Corporation Software Engineer 2 in Bellevue, Washington
Big Data and AI is fundamentally transforming computing, but messy data can slow down AI projects. Data scientists and developers spend far too much time preparing the data that they need for all phases of AI, and our mission is to build technologies that help these users spend significantly less time doing data prep - helping them spend more time on the actual AI.
To this end, we are building new capabilities to assist our customers as they acquire, understand, clean, transform and prepare their data. We work with both local and cloud data, and allow customers to scale their data processing from the desktop to the cloud.
We are a small team with a start-up mentality and a proven track record of delivering results. Here is your chance to influence and contribute to the future of Data Wrangling at Microsoft in a big way!
We are looking for engineers with experience delivering end-to-end customer facing features. In this role, you will be responsible for designing, implementing and testing new features, and delighting our customers with top quality and performance.
