Excel jobs

I tripped over a couple of open jobs in the Excel team the other day from here. You have to select Excel then search as its all session based so if I gave a direct link it would be expired. You did know Microsoft are not world leaders in search right?

Sadly the daily commute from Carlisle would make Redmond almost (!) unrealistic for me – I would have to set off before I got home… but I reckon working in that team would be great. All the folks I’ve met have been smart, enthusiastic and really switched on.

The VSTO team are also looking, that would be pretty interesting work too I reckon. I’ve met a few of them too and they seem to be going places.

I couldn’t find any effluent UI jobs – I reckon it would be easy to shine in that team -‘yes I have actually used MS Office in the real world…’. Or perhaps the jobs are there but hidden away using the same ‘logic’ they used in Excel. Self selecting?

I didn’t check for Access jobs, but that could be good too, it seems to have a (deserved) new lease of life recently.

Let us know if you get lucky

    Hey Simon, thought I should let you know that on Thursday I’m interviewing for a new job, it’s not for Microsoft, but the job is mainly doing VBA, formulas, charts, etc, in Excel and Access. Thank you careerbuilder.com :)
