The jobs are in R&D, not in User Experience/User Education. To contract
with Microsoft, you must go through one of the approved agencies that
Microsoft works with. More information is available on the employment
section of their website. (You DID check their website first, didn't you?)
Some writer/editor positions are there. As for telecommuting, local
telecommuters only. There are a couple of folks who telecommute from a
great distance, but they're sort of "legacy" hires.
