American multinational technology company, Microsoft is opening a new office in Lagos.

Announcing the development on Twitter, a staffer of the tech company, Alex Kipman, said Microsoft is opening a new office in Nigeria to build Mixed Reality and Artificial Intelligence. 

In his tweet, Kipman who’s a Microsoft Technical Fellow and the co-creator of HoloLens provided a link hat reads: Apply for Software Engineer with Microsoft in Lagos.

However, a check on the link states the benefits and perks, responsibilities and qualifications required for the job.

The responsibilities include the followings:

  • 3+ years’ experience in Software Engineering
  • Experience building, releasing, and supporting applications or services in a modern programming language using a common application or services stack
  • Experience shipping cloud services, networked applications or distributed systems
  • Proven track record of multidisciplinary capabilities
  • Strong collaboration and communication skills
  • Experience working with distributed engineering teams
  • Proven track record working with concurrent programming concepts like asynchronous operations, distributed consensus and parallelism preferred but not required
  • Experience with Kubernetes & Golang preferred but not required.

However, there’s no any academic requirement for the job. This is a testament that tech companies like Microsoft don’t care about degree certificates but candidates skills.
