About me

Hi, I am Clemens Schotte. My passion for technology and innovation has been the cornerstone of my career, guiding me through a remarkable journey within Microsoft, currently as Senior Program Manager in the Maps & Local Product Group.

Since embarking on this path after my graduation from The Hague University in 2002, I have dedicated over two decades to the pursuit of technological excellence. My early years as a software developer, where I crafted dynamic web solutions using PHP and C#, laid the foundation for a career characterized by impactful innovation.

Joining Microsoft in 2007 as a Consultant, I had the privilege of architecting solutions that not only spurred business growth but also paved the way for transformative change. This role evolved into that of a Technical Evangelist between 2013 and 2017, during which I led initiatives to empower developers and nurture a culture of innovation.

My tenure at Dropbox as a Solutions Architect further refined my strategic and leadership skills, focusing on delivering customer-centric solutions. Returning to Microsoft in 2019, I brought back a wealth of knowledge and fresh perspectives, which have been instrumental in advancing our Azure Maps services to new heights of excellence.

The diverse roles I have held at Microsoft reflect my ability to tackle complex challenges, foster collaboration, and devise strategic roadmaps that push the boundaries of what is possible.


As I look to the future, I am excited to continue this journey of innovation and discovery. At Microsoft, we will redefine the limits of technology and create transformative experiences that resonate across the globe.

Best regards, Clemens Schotte
