To give you even more insight into Windows 10, we’d like to introduce you to some of the people on our team and how they support the platform – and Windows Insiders like you. We’ll feature team profiles on an ongoing basis here in the Hub.
Jeremy Mohn – Software Engineer II
Describe your role with Microsoft and the Windows Insider Program
I am a Software Engineer and a Community Champion for the Maps team in Windows. My job is to gather feedback, analyze data and then work with our team to make sure we are focusing on the right set of issues our customers are reporting. I also work in educating our team in how to properly listen and understand customer feedback as part of our daily work life.
What technologies do you work on?
My teams focus is on delivering a high quality set of map controls and services for developers to use in their apps. We are constantly working to improve developers experiences building on our software and services. I specifically focus on monitoring our platform services (search, directions, traffic, geocoding, etc) on devices across the world.
What’s your favorite feature on Windows 10?
Xbox streaming, to be able to stream my Xbox One from my basement to my Surface running Windows 10 in the bedroom is awesome.
What’s your favorite app?
Maps! One of my favorite experiences is sitting with my kids on the couch and exploring the world. They love picking a location and then zooming all the way in to find all the cities and landmarks. 3D and Streetside are super cool as well. Outside of Maps I spend quite a bit of time in Visual Studio and way too much time on Reddit in Edge. J
Describe one of your favorite experiences with the Insider community
One of the great things about working with Windows Insiders is being able to loop back after some of their feedback has been addressed via the Windows Feedback app. We get valuable feedback (both good and bad) from Insiders who get to try the new features first. I also think it is pretty cool to see feedback come in as raw data, get translated to actual code and then shipped in an update. We are passionate about Maps and having a passionate group of Insiders giving us feedback just helps us make better experiences.
What do you do outside of work?
My wife and I have 2 year old twins at home, so outside of work they are my focus. We go on hikes, go to the park and they love to help cook. I like to go running and biking to get some exercise. I am also a huge fan of the Seattle Seahawks and the University of Oregon Ducks.
