Join the TFS development team and help shape the industry

Buck Hodges

Do you want to be a developer on the TFS team, solve challenging problems, and break new ground in ALM?  Then join the TFS development team in Redmond, WA.

You’ll notice that we mention cloud computing with Azure below.  If you saw the PDC keynote demos this year, you saw some early work on getting TFS running on Azure.  If you missed it, go to the 2:09:50 mark of the “PDC10 keynotes with Steve Ballmer and Bob Muglia” recording on the PDC10 site to see Brian Harry demo TFS on Azure (Brian also wrote a blog post about TFS on Azure).  We’re working on great new features with some very exciting technology.
