About the team
At Skype & Teams, our vision is to re-humanize communications from the living room to the boardroom. Skype is used by family and friends across the globe.
Skype for business has transformed the way millions of enterprise workers communicate and collaborate in real time. Microsoft Teams is redefining the group collaboration space with laser focus on team and individual productivity.
In recent years Skype has completely reinvented itself-replacing our P2P infrastructure with modern cloud microservices, integrating Skype with other Microsoft services (such as O365) for a fluid user experience, evolving into both consumer and business products, and supporting our users whether they run on desktop, mobile, or web apps.
Join the team that powers the entire messaging back-end for Skype, Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams.
