Microsoft Corporation Software Development Engineer 2 in Suzhou, China

We are the newly formed Youth and Learning team under the WebXT organization, home to Microsoft’s major AI-powered products and businesses such as Bing and Ads. Our mission is to connect students, parents, and educators around the world, enabling them to share knowledge and have affordable 24/7 access to quality information and education on a variety of subjects that augment and compliment what traditional school systems are able to offer.
