When Steve Ballmer hired a team of software testers from Microsoft to help him launch a new cloud-based services company in 2005, the company was a $3 billion company.
But it’s grown into a $35 billion company today.
Ballmer’s software testing unit, called the Test Lab, now employs about 4,200 people.
Ballmers successor, Microsoft’s new “Test Hub,” is also a huge company that has more than 5,000 employees, according to the company.
