Job Description

Microsoft runs on trust. As our lives and businesses are becoming increasingly digitized, trust is the glue that holds our world together. To create and enhance this trust, we build solutions that proactively protect our customers, our partners and our company from operational risk.

Do you believe that your current skills and future potential can help us build and operate best-in-class, highly scalable cloud solutions to fight corruption and fraud? We face large volumes of complex incoming priorities, and we turn them into elegant, efficient experiences that amplify human ingenuity. This work is not easy, but it is meaningful and exciting every day. If you buy into the values of our team and feel that you have skills to offer, come talk to us. Let's work together to build a new foundation of trust for our world's digital future.
