Are you passionate about building cool devices and technologies?
The Surface team is lighting up Microsoft experiences with the next
generation of devices. A fundamental part of our strategy is
bringing productivity and mobility together through devices that
enable new experiences - helping people and organizations unlock
their creativity, passion, and potential. Creating these devices
involves a close partnership between silicon, hardware and software
engineers, designers, and manufacturing. We are currently building
the next generation and Surface needs you!
The Silicon Architecture organization is charged with defining
the features and capabilities of SoC used on Surface devices. We
are responsible for:
Driving and co-engineering silicon features that provide clear
user experiences differentiation and emotional connection to
Windows ecosystem as showcased by Surface platforms. Strategically
develop and incorporate IP (SW/HW) that enables meaningful
experiences that are unique or significantly better.
