Hi, I’m Jim Schumacher. Currently I am a Software Development Engineer in Test working on CRM’s Marketing Automation features. I began my Microsoft career in 2002 working for Microsoft Defense Messages System (DMS) in the Exchange Server product group. I joined Microsoft CRM in spring 2006 and helped release Microsoft CRM v4.0, which I am very excited about.
I am a Washington state native, growing up in the hot dry eastern half of Washington where there are many fields and farms, far from the evergreen tree postcard views most people associate with Washington state. I also spent some time in the eastern half of the US attending school in Ohio about 30 miles outside of Pittsburgh PA.
