Microsoft is Hiring for Mac

Microsoft is launching their biggest hiring initiative since the inception of MacBU eleven years ago.
We are hard at work planning for products beyond Office 2008, and we are growing our team to help turn our vision into reality.

We offer the feel of a small company with a strong team culture of innovation, creativity, and creating great user experiences. We combine the power of Office with the latest Mac technologies to create world class products - we develop exclusively for Macs, and we love 'em.

At the risk of leaving out/forgetting plenty of other good reasons, here are my top ten reasons to join MacBU:

10. We are the brightest, coolest, and most interesting business unit at Microsoft – if we do say so ourselves
9. We’re passionate about our products, the platform, our customers, and our kick-butt industrial strength margarita machine
8. High energy, passionate, fun team – we love what we do!
7. Free caffeine, tastily packaged in soda cans and in our fiendishly addictive coffee machines. Oh, and free milk and juice, too
6. Microsoft offers industry-leading benefits all around, but our health care benefit is amazing
5. Small team, big challenges: every member of our team makes a huge impact on our business
4. One of the largest dedicated Mac software development organizations outside of Apple
3. We work for Microsoft and we are proud of it!
2. Our software is used by millions of people around the world
1. Three words: Mac. Office. Microsoft. ‘Nuff said.

We offer an outstanding opportunity to build great software experiences for Mac customers, and to have a significant impact on the way millions of Mac users work around the world. Also, Microsoft has a lot to offer: career stability, industry-leading benefits, excellent opportunities for career growth, flexible hours, positive work/life balance, and support for family life.

We’re hiring for multiple roles (Program Managers, Developers, Testers, User Experience, and Marketing) in Redmond and Silicon Valley. Send your resume to
