Hila Yehuda, Enthusiastic App Creator
After eight years at Microsoft, I decided to realize my dream and set up a startup with a social focus. I was sure I would have to leave my job and look for investors, but Microsoft decided to give me a budget to set up the start-up from the inside. They just said, "Okay, we like your idea, we believe in you, let's do it together."
Kobi Mimon, Proud LGBTQ Community Leader
Even in a progressive environment like hi-tech, members of the LGBT community aren’t always comfortable being out. We’re nervous that if we talk about it, others will feel uncomfortable. It’s because of this that all the activities we do for the gay community convey a simple message: we like you just as you are.
Efrat Kliger, Master Reinventor
I like the feeling that there is no single path that I’m supposed to take. I started at Microsoft as a software engineer, and today I manage a product. Our industry is based on the ability to invent and innovate, so a work environment that allows people to reinvent themselves is necessary, and ultimately produces better teams and products.
Sruly Taber, Biblical Code Creator
I was once on a flight to the U.S, and the guy sitting next to me pulled out his laptop and started to work. It turns out he uses code that I wrote on a daily basis. It is still pretty amazing that at the Microsoft Israel R&D Center we write a few lines of code and within a matter of weeks it’s deployed to millions of users.
Maya Bechler Speicher, Young Jedi
The innovation group I'm part of is trying to solve global challenges, and that requires me to be at the forefront of research and technology. Besides coding (which is my favorite thing), I'm always learning new technologies, new algorithms and even new math tricks. Every day on the way home from work, I think about the number of wild, new things I learned.
Itai Grady, Big Hair Dude
You can’t really know what the next hack will look like - but that’s the fun part! It’s like playing a never-ending game of cat and mouse, and it’s a great feeling when I detect an attack quickly - or even better, before it happens!
Furgus, Senior officer
Seeking new friends
Likes: To lie on my back and scratch the floor, super-fast.
Dislikes: when people throw me in the air like I'm a football.
Microsoft Israel R&D Center is a place that pushes limits and tests boundaries – including your own. Our growth mindset begins with feeding your curiosity.
We offer tools to enrich your personal and professional development. From a highly coveted lecture series to a top-rated mentorship program, we’ll help steer your career.
At the R&D Center, you can be both a teacher and a student, and we think you excel when you’re not confined to just one role. Our mentorship program is hugely successful because we believe that people thrive when given the opportunity to learn from one another. And because we recognize that work is only part of the pie, our program pairs up employees in similar stages of life, helping build genuine relationships.
We are so passionate about continuously learning that we’ve created an academy that’s specific to the Israel R&D Center and its core competencies.
Choose from the Global Artificial Intelligence program or apply for the Cyber Security track, where you’ll attend a weekly class, complete a final project and receive a certificate upon completion.
Interviewing can feel nerve-wracking, and we want you to feel comfortable and confident so that we can see you shine. We're looking for driven, genuine, and authentic people. We believe in creative thinkers who seek out end-to-end innovation, and of course, technical excellence.
We’re looking for a clean, simple format that’s no more than two pages in length.
Let your education stand out by listing it first and include your degree, major, GPA and when you graduated - or expect to!
Start with your most recent experience and keep the description clear. Emphasize accomplishments, impact, and achievements.
List any personal projects, awards, and extracurricular activities. Be sure to keep it relevant to the position you’re applying.
Include any open source experience you may have and link your Github profile with any core languages you know.
Include your extracurricular activities. We value student group involvement, publications, patents, or volunteer efforts.
Practice makes perfect. Go over some behavioral and technical questions, depending on your role. Software engineers can prepare by reviewing problems and solutions in Cracking the Coding Interview.
You may also want to provide a few examples of past successes and challenges you’ve had that are relevant to your position. Finally, try practicing with friends to make sure your points are clear. Good luck!
