Steve Jobs famously accused Microsoft of not having any taste, but over the last 5-6 years, Microsoft has been working hard at turning that image around, often leading from the front with their Surface line of laptops and PCs.

Microsoft is currently poised to release a number of new rumoured products, such as the Surface Phone, Surface Studio 2, and HoloLens 2, meaning the company will be needing a lot more designers.

Now it appears the company is on a recruiting spree, looking to hire a number of new staff to add to their team of 60 people, from user experience designers to creative editors.

Ralf Groene, Head of Industrial Design Microsoft Devices at Microsoft, writes:

Hey, our team is looking for creatives. We are a team of sixty people, from ID to interaction design, material science and movie makers. We design every hardware product Microsoft makes, from Surface to Xbox to Holo Lens to everything else no one knows about. We work as product makers across a team of diverse disciplines and thinkers.

Those with the requisite skills can read more at LinkedIn here. The rest of us can look forward to seeing more tasty and likely incredibly expensive, but very well designed, Microsoft hardware in the near future.
