Microsoft hiring many [Mac people]



By

Microsoft's Mac Business Unit announced last week that it's going on a hiring spree, the biggest in its 11 years of existence.

"The Mac BU at Microsoft is growing—we’re launching our biggest hiring initiative since the inception of MacBU eleven years ago," said Mac BU general manager Craig Eisler. "We combine the power of Office with the latest Mac technologies to create world class products—we develop exclusively for Macs, and we love 'em."

Thereupon, they've published a Top 10 list of reasons of why you (metaphorical you) should work for Microsoft coding for the Mac:

10 We are the brightest, coolest, and most interesting business unit at Microsoft – if we do say so ourselves

09 We’re passionate about our products, the platform, our customers, and our kick-butt industrial strength margarita machine

08 High energy, passionate, fun team – we love what we do!

07 Free caffeine, tastily packaged in soda cans and in our fiendishly addictive coffee machines. Oh, and free milk and juice, too

06 Microsoft offers industry-leading benefits all around, but our health care benefit is amazing

Macbook, Macbook Pro, iMac and iPod Sale!


05 Small team, big challenges: every member of our team makes a huge impact on our business

04 One of the largest dedicated Mac software development organizations outside of Apple

03 We work for Microsoft and we are proud of it!

02 Our software is used by millions of people around the world

01 Three words: Mac. Office. Microsoft. ‘Nuff said.

The Mac BU is hiring for multiple roles (Program Managers, Developers, Testers, User Experience, and Marketing) in Redmond and Silicon Valley.

Editor's note: And, a sense of humor, too! But, no matter how cool working in the Mac BU might be, blogging is just such an awesome thing to do. Besides, maintaining 100% control over the coffee pot is really, really important to me (beans, grind, water, blend, temperature)...

What's your excuse reason for not applying or are you considering employment with Microsoft?
