The Microsoft main office is located in Lyngby, north of Copenhagen, close to the public transports so the whole Greater Copenhagen area is your oyster. Get to know how it is to work in Greater Copenhagen– key words are collaboration and digitalisation.

Working in Denmark also means living in Denmark a rich after-work life, whether you have family or not. You can join clubs and associations for leisure (we have great leisure clubs in Microsoft), start free Danish lessons, enjoy the many cultural activities the city offers or spend time with family and friends. Danes work effectively but also prioritize their families and off-work activities. Is it the world’s best work-life balance? Possibly.

Greater Copenhagen has excellent transport connections by metro, bus and train as well as outstanding infrastructure for cycling safely in and around the cities. Copenhagen Airport is the largest hub in Northern Europe with 150 direct international destinations, of which more than 100 are European destinations. This makes Copenhagen Airport the best connected airport in Scandinavia. So you are only a flight away.
