Microsoft Australia and New Zealand Internship

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. We believe technology is a powerful force in improving people’s lives. We see it every day in our work — whether it’s students discovering the magic of creating something new with code, or health workers who use cloud services to better diagnose illnesses, collaborate with colleagues, and treat patients. The potential of technology to empower people and organisations has never been greater. We hire amazing people to do amazing things. Come as you are. Do what you love.

As an intern at Microsoft, you will take part in a 1-year long intern rotation, taking on challenging and meaningful projects across two roles in different teams and business groups, with the opportunity to gain diverse experiences and business insights. Our interns work on projects that matter – and your team will rely on your skills and insights to help deliver those projects to market. You’ll get the opportunity to work on real projects and have fun along the way. This is your chance to show off your skills and work on cutting-edge technology.

Imagine the impact you can make. Join Microsoft today, and help us shape the business of tomorrow!

Intern Experience

Interns will be attending an annual week-long conference, where you will experience a deep dive into Microsoft’s culture, technology and the regional focus of the business. You will be speaking to our regional leaders and build your network with our interns across APAC. Be prepared for an intense week of learning, career development, cultural diversity and a truckload of fun!
