I have been an engineer on the web team for nearly two years. This job posting isn't live yet, so e-mail me (AdamRe at Microsoft) for now. I'll try to check for replies to this thread a few times today and over the coming days.

Any Entry level openings? Thanks

Not at the moment. (Edit: At least, none that I'm aware of on the web team.)
