Amazing things happen here

When smart, creative, passionate people get together, the results can be astounding and the opportunities limitless.  We’re a global company in over 100 countries, but we often act like a startup. We do software—but we also do hardware, services, research, and community outreach. We work hard, but we value work/life balance, and each of us defines what that means to us. So why not explore what we do, where we do it, and what life is really like at Microsoft? You just might be surprised.
