We’re a curious, creative, and driven bunch. We’re a diverse team who strive to achieve excellence in everything we do. We value differences and aren’t afraid to take risks. Making mistakes and learning from them is what leads us to success. As a result, our ideas are better.
Microsoft's mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. We set out to complete this mission by building the best-in-class platforms and services for a mobile-first, cloud-first world.
The Israel R&D Center’s mission is to lead strategic products and services that realize Microsoft's vision, by tapping into Israel's unique technological & entrepreneurial assets. We are the place to be to acquire top-notch skills.
Our work environment allows people to reinvent themselves.

Over the past years, we’ve held a few pretty-pretty cool events. From our incredible Women Think Next events to our BlueHat IL cyber events, we know how to throw an awesome party. Our events are always known to be lots of fun, but we do more than serve scrumptious deserts: we do our best to inspire people.
Women Think Next is an annual event for women in hi-tech. Initiated and organized by Microsoft, Women Think Next is an opportunity to share insights and knowledge, create new business opportunities, and network with your industry peers. This year, our event focused on how Artificial Intelligence can help you manage massive amounts of data to optimize your work.
We work hard and play hard. We celebrate technological innovation, special occasions, and countless happy hours.
But mostly, we celebrate us. Take a peek to see our previous shindigs, and make sure to catch the next one.
By tapping into our differences and embracing them, our ideas are better, our products are better, and our employees thrive. As part of our activities to support diversity, we’re proud to champion the LGBTQ community in Israel and collaborate throughout the year on several projects.
Microsoft is known for pulling off the best hacking events in the industry. This year’s Hackathon was no exception: we built an “underground hacking playground” providing a one-of-a-kind experience for innovators to pitch their ideas, demo their work, and celebrate their genius inventions.
There ain’t nothing like an 80’s themed party to get everyone in neon leggings ;) In this year’s Purim soirée we partied with big hair, hot pink spandex and a ton of glitter. From grand performances by a leading DJ and famous singers to greasy fries – we were totally in the groove!
We believe that the practice of growth mindset can create the change we want to see in the world, and that’s at the forefront of everything we do. Microsoft Israel R&D Center’s community activities help realize our values by bringing resources to our communities. To achieve our goals, we partner up with schools, government, and community leaders to create action plans that empower people to become the drivers of growth in their communities.
Microsoft Israel R&D Center helps direct young people, and particularly women to become graduates of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) by intervening during critical years and introducing student mentors. We’re actively involved in programs that support these missions: Different Lesson, DigiGirlz
Programming is the newest and most critical language of the 21st century. Coding is an art that we’re helping to make more accessible to kids across communities by way of interactive programs that shape and nurture a lifelong passion for coding and technology.
The importance of developing your inner compass helps fuel our philosophy of what it means to practice the growth mindset. We enable employees to give of themselves by volunteering their time to causes that matter and year-round donations with the overarching message to simply, give.
