About Microsoft

Come as you are. Do what you love. 

Microsoft's mission is to 'Empower every person and every organisation  on the planet to achieve more.' We are a global company, located in over 100 countries. Building best-in-class platforms and productivity services for a mobile-first, cloud-first world.

This means opportunities and empowerment for our Microsoft employees — to do things that impact the lives of over a billion people every day. 

Above all though, Microsoft is a great place for smart, curious, ambitious people with a growth mindset to do their best work. We work hard to create a workplace which is diverse and inclusive, where you can have a great work-life balance and love the work you do. 


Diversity and inclusion: 

We don’t just value differences, we seek them out. We invite them in. Microsoft is a place where employees can be who they are. We value diverse perspectives. And as a result, we have better ideas, better products and happier customers.



Growth mindset: 

At Microsoft, we’re insatiably curious and always learning. We ask questions, take risks and build on each other’s ideas, because we are better together. We lean into uncertainty, take risks and move quickly when we make mistakes because we know that failure happens along the way to innovation and breakthrough. 


Making a difference: 

Our employees have access to the latest technology and tools, the power to build on the company’s far-reaching momentum and the drive to change the world. We can make a difference. Together, we can help billions of people around the globe use digital technology to achieve amazing things.
