We still serve

Every year 200,000 people leave active duty for civilian life. Men and women who formerly served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard continue to positively impact the world by excelling in their diverse careers at Microsoft.

Hear from our veterans

"MSSA gives service members time to think about what they want to do when they get out—and perhaps discover a passion for technology they didn’t realize they had."
— Solaire , Service Engineer, Signals Intelligence Analyst, USMC
"Now I wake up every morning and I know that I’m doing something that’s just as challenging and just as rewarding as being a Marine."
— Ryan , Software Engineer, Former Sergeant, USMC
"I had the opportunity to learn what I call more collaborative leadership: the ability to give and take, to understand where to hold the line, where not to hold the line."
— Mark , Account Executive, Air Force Colonel, Department of Defense
“A lot of things we do here are things we did in the military: solving problems, completing tasks, taking things one step at a time until, eventually, you get a great product."
— Anthony, Software Engineer for Windows, Sergeant, USMC
Bernard , Technical Account Manager, Sergeant, Special Forces
“I have great mentors, great team leaders, people that I can grab coffee with, sit down with, and get a different perspective.”
— Bernard, Technical Account Manager, Sergeant, Special Forces
