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 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!

At Microsoft, we strongly believe that Mixed Reality is the future. We are the Perception Cloud team, responsible for a suite of services including Azure Object Anchors, Azure Spatial Anchors, Azure Remote Rendering, and new upcoming services around Spatial AI and Physical World understanding, that bring holograms to life across multiple platforms. We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to come join us as we continue building out our services for holographic content.

Helping our customers succeed with our solutions is what excites us every day! We believe in sane work hours, using our discretionary time off, and paid parental leave. In addition, we are passionate about learning on the job. Our culture is collaborative, passionate and customer focused. We try to bring our growth mindset to work every day!

Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. As employees we come together with a growth mindset, innovate to empower others, and collaborate to realize our shared goals. Each day we build on our values of respect, integrity, and accountability to create a culture of inclusion where everyone can thrive at work and beyond.
