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 some Research but also get hands on to create, build, make and ship a feature or product? If so, we have a variety of product teams to choose from; our PhD product Engineering & Data Science opportunities are broader than you might think. What this means for you is a chance to experience a variety of products and technologies. Collaborating with Program Managers, Engineers, Researchers, Scientist, Design and much more! Come apply your PhD skills in a product group and make an impact by building & working on things that make a real difference in millions, even billions, of people’s lives.
For our Product teams we hire more engineering centric PhD interns. For example: Applied Scientist, Data Scientist, 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 Artificial Intelligence & Research (AI&R), Cloud & Enterprise (C&E), 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 engineering roles versus just Research.
