Senior Software Engineer


Job title: Senior Software Engineer

Company: Microsoft

Job description: Each input has a superpower. For touch it’s that natural feeling of direct manipulation, for voice it’s the speed of text entry and hands-free input/output, and for pen and ink it’s the ability to have free-flowing unstructured creativity that allows you to think, communicate, and ideate in ways no other input allows.

Ink can be created through almost any input whether that’s mouse, touch, or pen, and for collaborative applications like Whiteboard and PPT Live, the ability for people with a mouse to ink is crucial so everyone can participate.
