You've used the blocks.  You've read the guides.  Maybe you've wondered where they come from?  Maybe you've thought you could do it better? Now, come to Redmond and show us how it is done.  The patterns & practices developer team is looking for top developers around to keep raising the bar on the stuff we product.  With our quick product development cycles, you'll get a wide variety of projects and help Microsoft’s customers develop sophisticated applications and achieve more predictable results. I've been in the group for 3.5 years and it's been quite a learning experience. 

Jim Newkirk has a post on his blog for anyone interesting in taking on an exciting challenge.
