In Mixed Reality, people—not devices—are at the center of everything we do. Our tech moves beyond screens and pixels, creating a new reality aimed at bringing us closer together—whether that’s scientists “meeting” on the surface of a virtual Mars or some yet undreamt-of possibility. To get there, we’re incorporating groundbreaking technologies, from the revolutionary Holographic Processing Unit to computer vision, machine learning, human-computer interaction, and more.

We’re a growing team of talented engineers, program managers and artists putting technology on a human path across all Windows devices, including Microsoft HoloLens, the Internet of Things, phones, tablets, desktops, and Xbox. Our team has people from a wide variety of backgrounds, identities, previous work histories, life experiences, and we are eager to maintain and grow that diversity. Our varied backgrounds and unique experiences enable us to be better at building the best solutions for our customers and make for dynamic and joyful collaborations with colleagues!

If you are passionate about groundbreaking Mixed Reality technology and want to work on a team dedicated to a culture of inclusion, growth mindset and collaboration, we need you!

Be a part of a team that values collaboration, experimentation, and innovation. Your unique background, ideas, skills, partnered with a growth mindset are welcome in this team. As a member of the Mixed Reality Ground Truth and Data team you will be on the cutting edge of building Mixed Reality devices and services. Our goal, together, is to deliver the best, most accurate, and stable holograms. We do this through measurement, data, KPIs and science. By building real world ground truth, synthetics and simulation pipelines paired with through the lens evaluation and customer telemetry we measure and improve core device capabilities. We empower our Mixed Reality teams to know more and build better experiences. We help build the fundamental SLAM based head tracking, scene understanding, spatial anchoring, object understanding algorithms that power mixed reality devices.

You’ll work hands on with Mixed Reality devices like the HoloLens and cloud services like Azure Spatial Anchors, writing code for capturing data, building 3d visualizations, working on cloud storage, distributed compute pipelines and even robotics. In this role, you’ll see a direct link between your work, product growth, and user satisfaction, making science fiction, science fact.
