About Microsoft Corporation Information Technology & Operations Internships

Microsoft's ambitions to put a computer on every desk have evolved to put a computing device just about anywhere and connect it to the cloud rather than anchor it to a desk. Besides the Windows operating system and Office suite of productivity programs, Microsoft makes tablets (Surface), game consoles (Xbox), and smartphones (Lumia). It even introduced its first laptop computer in 2015. Still software -- for consumers and businesses -- is Microsoft's biggest source of revenue.

Microsoft has a well-earned reputation as a top employer and top firm in its field.  In addition to full-time positions, Microsoft also offers a number of internships, including a number that fall in the category of Information Technology & Operations. Interns in this department make sure employees have connectivity, that information is secure, that intelligence is drived from heaps of data, and that Microsoft's systems are reliable enough to allow for rapid evolution and resiliency.

Microsoft offers five internships in IT & Operations:

IT Software Development Engineer: A Microsoft IT software development engineer (SDE) plays a key role in the design, development, and integration of products and services that leverage key Microsoft technologies.

IT Software Development Engineer in Test: An IT software development engineer in test (SDET) brings technical skills, an understanding of testing practices, and knowledge of both development and test approaches and strategies, including planning, execution, and feedback to the delivery team.

IT Program Manager:  An IT program manager (PM) has the opportunity to blend their business acumen, management skills, and technical expertise to deliver dynamic, enterprise-wide solutions. They work directly with users and development teams to design, implement, and deliver business-ready solutions.

IT Solution Manager: A Solution Manager (SM) in IT creates and improves business processes and delivers technology solutions that drive business value. They also partner with clients and internal organizations.

IT Service Operations: Microsoft IT service operations (SO) personnel work with systems, platforms, and internal Microsoft applications in a high-stakes environment with the latest Microsoft platforms and technologies.
