Our passion unites us

What do Microsoft employees have in common? The answer is passion—for life, for creating quality products, for the people who count on us to help them realize their potential. We are driven to make an impact—at work, in our communities, on the world. We’re here because Microsoft helps us do that—by recognizing the unique value of our diversity, supporting our career development, and rewarding us for great work.

If this sounds like the place for you, why don't you join us?

Everyone works differently and is motivated by different things. That’s why we offer competitive pay and a wide assortment of benefits—to help you make the most of your life at work and away from it. In exchange for a job well done, we reward you well, invest in your health and financial future, and—because you are more than your job—make sure you have time to pursue your interests and passions away from the office. Even our products and technologies help you balance work with your life away from work by making it easier to work remotely and manage your schedule. We understand that you’ll enjoy work more and do a better job if you also have a full, rewarding life. Learn more.
Career Development: The door’s wide open

It goes beyond training—although with over 2,000 courses available globally in classrooms or online, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for that. We make sure you and your manager dedicate time each year to discussing your career development, and you can access our online career resources anytime. Plus, to give each other a hand in getting ahead, we are all encouraged to choose—or to be—a mentor.
