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!

The Scene Understanding team’s charter is to understand the real world and convert this understanding into a programming model that is natural for developers to work with. We are a mix of top engineers, computer graphics, computer vision and deep neural network experts that work together to build the most unique, impactful, and innovative environment sensing technology in the world.

As a senior member of the Scene Understanding team inference team, you will help drive both machine learning and training algorithm development but also infrastructure and data. You will have the unique opportunity to drive big scope in applied Machine Learning that will re-define mixed reality but also play a broader role within the team working with reconstruction, runtimes etc.. to build an incredible product.
