Microsoft Product Teams
Do you love Research but maybe the lab isn’t for you? Do you find yourself looking for that place where you can apply your Research but also get hands on to apply, experiment, build, make and ship a feature or a product? If so, we have a variety of product teams to choose from that are working on real-world problems in computer science. Our PhD product Engineering & Data Science product team opportunities are broader than you might think! Whether you are interested in developing, prototyping, data mining, and or applying your research in artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision – you’ll have a chance to experience a variety of products and technologies. You would collaborate closely with program managers, engineers, researchers, scientist, designers to work on something impactful and meaningful. Come apply your PhD skills and area of research in a product group and make an impact by building & working on Microsoft products that make a real difference in millions, even billions, of people’s lives.
For our Product teams we hire more applied research & engineering centric PhD interns. For example: Applied Scientist, Data Scientist, Software Engineers in AI/ML. and Production Software Engineers (SWE.) This is a 12-week internship in Summer and or Spring and is designed to be a conversion program to FTE post-graduation - based on successful completion. Recruiting begins early August-December for Summer internships, and March-June for Fall internships. Students are expected to collaborate with other interns and product teammates & colleagues. Internships are paid and available in many areas like product organizations like Artificial Intelligence & Research (AI&R), Cloud & Enterprise (C&E) etc. Windows & Devices (WDG) and the Office Product Group (OPG) Location will vary but typically our interns will be placed at Microsoft Headquarters in Redmond, WA and or Sunnyvale, CA. We can also help with visa applications where needed.
Candidates must be enrolled in a PhD program and are looking for more hands-on applied research & engineering roles versus just pure Research focused on publication only.
