Microsoft’s Windows Phone team is in hot hiring mode.

First Job Post,

In an increasingly mobile and socially networked world, we all need to stay connected while on the go and the Windows Phone team is at the forefront of that challenge. An endless number of new scenarios are being enabled by mobile wireless technologies as the last few years have seen an explosion of mobile networking technologies, ranging from short-range technologies like Bluetooth and NFC to Wi-Fi and 4G technologies like LTE promising 100Mb download speeds to large areas.

With all these opportunities comes a real technical challenge, providing best in class connectivity on Windows Phone devices. In this role you will drive the vision and underlying implementation for our core network technologies. This requires an ability to understand the requirements our mobile operator partners, application developers, and hardware vendors, have for network connectivity, as well as requirements other Windows Phone teams have for network related services.

This person will be required to have a solid understanding of networking technologies (IP, TCP, UDP, DNS, IPv4, IPv6) and services (UPnP, DLNA, RAS, VPN)

This person will be required to have or quickly develop a basic understanding of WWAN technologies (e.g. CDMA, GSM, LTE), WLAN technologies (e.g. 802.11), and Internet application development

Second Job Post,

Have you wanted an opportunity of working on 3G and 4G devices? Come and be part of the future as we work on the latest cellular technology. We are looking for a Senior Program Manager (PM) to be part of the Windows Phone cellular team. This is a highly visible role as you will be working with both internal as well as external partner teams to deliver products of exceptional quality.

Of course we would all rather hear about delivery rather than plans and job posts, but it is still good to hear Microsoft is not ignoring the next generation of wireless.
