Windows 10 Team Profile - Jeff Ermak

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.

Jeff Ermak – Software Engineer II

What technologies do you work on?

I work on the Windows peripherals team for printers and scanners.  We look at feedback to discover bugs, usability issues, and find suggestions for new Windows features. For Windows 10 I spent most of my time working on printing support for phones.  I wrote the internal app for our team to try out printing from phones and helped the photos app team get printing working on phone.

What is your favorite feature in Windows 10?

I like asking Cortana to remind me to do something in 15 minutes.  It saves a lot of sticky notes.

Describe one of your favorite experiences with the Insider community

One of the best experiences with the Insider community dealt with some feedback on some of the UI changes we made for 10.  A user didn’t notice one of the buttons that we had added, so we made changes to make it more discoverable.  It is great to get feedback from insiders while we are still developing the product and there is time to fix it.

What do you do outside of work?

Outside of work I spend time with my wife, 3 month old daughter, and dog.  I play hockey, soccer, mountain bike, and snowboard when I have free time.
