Thanks for stopping by - and congratulations on making the pivot to full stack development. There are a number of teams at Microsoft that work with JavaScript, TypeScript and all aspects of end-to-end web application development - from Microsoft Edge Developers (browser) to Playwright (testing) and PWA Builder (progressive web apps). There are also folks working on JavaScript SDKs (e.g., for Azure) and content (e.g., Microsoft Docs/Learn, samples etc.) - so there are many ways to engage.

Some suggestions are:
Look at open career positions and the teams they are on - then look at the GitHub Microsoft or Azure organization to see the kinds of projects the teams work on, and the people involved. See if that resonates - if you are looking to get hands-on experience, try contributing to an Open Source project. Reach out and talk to folks on the team to get a better understanding of the opportunities and then apply if it feels like a good fit.

I will say that this is a big company with many different roles, projects and teams and there should be entry-level positions available.
