We’re dedicated to getting people together around the things they love, so that we can all learn, make, discuss, share, and grow! We’re excited to see where you can help take us next!
We’re looking for creative problem solvers and diverse thinkers—people who care about adding to our team culture and engaging the community we serve. We believe that why we do things is as important as what we do. We’re looking for a team member who is creative, dedicated, startup-minded, and a life-long learner looking to create the future of learning at Microsoft. #OPGJOBS #FlipgridJobs #SocialLearningJobs
