Microsoft has been a big player in the data science industry after Azure and it’s machine learning tools have been slowly dominating as the biggest service provider in the cloud-computing market. As a result, Microsoft has been building out its data science team slowly but surely over the past five years to become one of the biggest companies hiring for the role.
Job Role The role of a data scientist at Microsoft varies a lot and is dependent on whichever team you interview with. Each Microsoft data science job is different and spans from analytics-based roles to more machine learning heavy. As a huge multi-conglomerate corporation, Microsoft has different teams that work on speech and language, artificial intelligence, machine learning infrastructure on Azure, data science consulting for cloud computing, and much more.
