Join the team in Modern Work that’s re-imagining how people come together in the workplace – Microsoft Mesh!

The concept of metaverse with 3D/immersive capabilities has been described as the new computing paradigm. Over the last two years, there has been significant investment in this space. The multitude of companies investing today are betting that using immersive technology for work and engaging with their customers will become imperative in the future. In 2022, over $120B in investments flew into the metaverse (McKinsey insights), and Bloomberg predicts that in 2024, the metaverse will be an $800B market opportunity.

Microsoft Mesh is Modern Work’s growth bet in this space and is designed to help organizations foster thriving workplaces by enabling employees to come together to connect, communicate and collaborate across different locations or geographies, using the mission critical tool they already have – Microsoft Teams. While customers agree with the imperative of creating deeper connections among their people, and many are intrigued by the concept of the metaverse – customers need to be convinced that Mesh is right for their business.

You will influence engineering, helping ensure that the product value proposition and experience represents what our customers want and need.
