Every now and then, a company posts interesting jobs on their career boards that provide hints about future projects or ongoing efforts to improve technology and solve problems. Recently, Microsoft’s otherwise excellent Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book devices have received a bit of a black eye due to issues that only firmware updates can result.
It might be no coincidence, then, that Microsoft has recently posted two positions relating directly to Surface firmware. If you’re a software engineer who’s familiar with Microsoft’s programming languages and Windows architecture, then you’ll likely want to give the company’s newest postings a look. Perhaps you can fix some of the nagging problems plaguing the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4, like the pesky sleep issue.
