Office Customer Voice - Office 365 is the leader of Microsoft’s mobile first, cloud first strategy. Office 365 was the fastest business in Microsoft to reach $1B revenue and this growth has continued with sustained double or even triple digit YoY growth as customers transition from boxed software to the cloud. More and more people enjoy having Office available on all their devices wherever they are. Our team connects what the customer says to the Office engineering/PM teams. We help the Office teams be customer obsessed!

The Office Customer Voice (OCV) team brings customer voice data from all over the planet into one centralized system with engaging UI and fast full text search. We make it easy to understand our customers by gathering Customer Support, In-Product Feedback, Surveys, Store Reviews, Help Content, and Forums and reasoning over it all. In OCV, we have democratized the customer voice data. Now we are working hard to democratize Insights into the data. At scale, we’ve implemented self-serve, full control supervised (classification) and unsupervised (clustering) learning with a front end UX to make it easy and convenient to route customer voice items to owning teams and group like items together into customer issues. We have researched and implemented a variety of text processing tech along with machine learning (ML) that helps teams save time in triaging and making sense of the large number of customer voice items per month they receive. While we have made great strides, there is a lot more work to be done to leverage the latest ML techniques to provide engineering and PM teams with inexpensive Insights and save them time.

If you love learning and implementing the latest ML techniques and/or want to bring the customer voice closer to engineering/PM teams to make an impact, then this is the team for you!
