Microsoft Cloud solution architect - Data interview process

Aug 17, 2018 15 Comments

Hi All, I wanted to find out the interview process for a CSA position within Data Platform at Microsoft. Do they hire people with ~4yrs experience ? What level will I be hired ? Any suggestions on the technical nature of the interviews will be helpful.
Finally what is the TC for this role ?

Present TC: 100k

    Typical is phone screen with recruiter, then tech screen over Skype, then interview loop at an on-Site office. If all goes well, offer from HR typically comes next.

  • Could you elaborate on the technical interviews ? Meaning will it require coding vs SQL or General Platform level knowledge would suffice ?

      Anything you can code is a bonus, but architecting a solution, translating the business requirements and being able to speak and command a room are what’s important

  • I’m not sure if they will sponsor a new H1B but I’m guessing they should be able to transfer your visa, have seen a lot of people working in this role on work visas
