Asia Pacific University Careers

At Microsoft, our mission is to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more.

Achieving that mission begins and ends with people. Our people and the people we provide products and services to, whether they’re organisations or individuals.

Build on is what we do and how we do it. It’s how we live up to our mission. A challenge to each of us. We build on the work of others, and invite them in to build on our work. Because we know the best ideas come from smart and insatiably curious people who constantly try, fail, learn and build. We build on because that’s how we’re wired and why we succeed. It’s this belief and collaboration between the brightest and most driven minds in the industry that has enabled us to accomplish amazing things, like developing tools for Surface to battle ALS, turning a 500-acre campus into an efficient, green, city of the future and helping people with sight loss experience the world in new ways through Microsoft’s 3D soundscape technology.

We are proud to be part of a global family and look forward to welcoming you, whatever your specialities, experience and aims, to team Microsoft.

A Global Company with Family Values

Our mission is to enable people and businesses throughout the world to do more and achieve more.

Achieving this requires great people who are bright, creative, and energetic, and who possess the following values:

  • Passion for customers, partners, and technology
  • Open and respectful with others and dedicated to making them better
  • Willingness to take on big challenges and see them through
  • Self-critical, questioning and committed to personal excellence and self-improvement
  • Accountable for commitments, results, and quality to customers, shareholders, partners and employees

Your wellbeing is important too – we believe that you work to live, not live to work. We offer employees a huge range of benefits and flexible work options to ensure you maintain a healthy work/life flexibility.

Diversity and inclusion

The heart of our business. Microsoft has always been about recognizing the value that different life experiences and viewpoints bring to our business. We seek out people from diverse backgrounds and encourage them to take risks and approach challenges unconventionally.

Corporate Citizenship

Global reach. Local impact. Microsoft has a responsibility, based on our mission and values, to promote social and economic opportunity in the communities where we work, live, and do business. That’s why we collaborate with governments and community organizations to address societal needs. Our commitment to enabling societal change and upholding the highest standards of business conduct are a part of what make us proud about working at Microsoft. With the support of our employees and in alliance with our many partners, we will continue to make positive and lasting contributions to society.

Career Development

At Microsoft, you’ll have an amazing range of opportunities. You might become an expert in a particular field or build proficiencies across many areas. You might be an individual contributor or become a manager. Because we have so many kinds of jobs in so many different places, you can stay in one building, city, or country, or you can cross borders—in person, or virtually.

One thing is certain: You’ll never stand still at Microsoft, and change is the only constant. As part of your development, you’ll have the option to engage in some 2,000 training programs taught by instructors from leading educational institutions and offered online, virtually, or in classrooms around the globe. You can’t beat the level of investment we place on career development. Mentoring & Networking: Connections to help us grow At Microsoft we share knowledge, experiences, and resources to help each other achieve our career goals and grow both professionally and personally.

Mentoring allows you to learn from the experiences of professionals within and outside of your own area of expertise, and to build a network to help find opportunities that can promote your development. Mentoring is a great way to make a big company feel smaller—and its opportunities more accessible—to each of us.

Employee resource groups, networks and social groups allow people with common interests or backgrounds to connect with each other. Do you love pets, vegetarian cooking, or the environment? Do you share a cultural background or special need with other employees? Chances are you’ll find a network of people with similar interests and/or needs at Microsoft, and you can connect with them as you develop your career and lifestyle. Being a part of the Microsoft community is a rich, fulfilling experience.
