Office Media Group (OMG) has a simple vision – to empower a billion customers to achieve more with media. The team builds services, applications, and experiences that bring the power of media, including photos, video, and more to every customer of Office.

Within OMG, Microsoft Stream, our rapidly growing AI-powered business video sharing service, is a team of passionate and dedicated engineers who are working to build best-in-class video services for the enterprise. We do this by combining advanced video streaming technologies, like Azure Media Services, with cutting edge machine learning and AI technologies such as Azure Cognitive Services. The team is diverse, humble and self-critical, and we learn from both our successes and our failures. Finally, the culture within Stream is one of equal opportunity and where having fun together and working collaboratively is as important as the code we deliver, that we can achieve much more together than we can as individuals.

So, are you ready for the opportunity to make a billion people more productive with media? If this sounds exciting, we'd love to hear from you today!
