Reading the tea leaves for Windows Mobile has become easier now hordes of people are combing through Microsoft’s job offers. The latest news is a job for a Software Testing engineer who fits the job description below:
“Do you want to create one of the most exciting new consumer service from Microsoft? Interested in leading a team from the ground up, working from prototype stage to shipping an experience on millions of devices? Do you dream about having a mobile phone based entertainment experience powered by a unified entertainment service across devices such as Zune, Xbox and PC? If yes, come join the Zune team!
The Zune team is embarking on the mission to create a â€œConnected Entertainmentâ€ experience, realized through the Zune service, that spans multiple devices such as Zune, Xbox, PC and Mobile phones. We are a rapidly growing, V1 product team with great opportunities for motivated individuals who can hit the ground running!”
While a Zune services which reaches over to Windows Mobile is good news, its worrying that the job offer makes so many reference to this project being in a very early stage. With Windows Mobile 7 coming in less than a year, should the service really still be working “from the ground up“?
Either way, further confirmation can only be good news.Â Read the Job description on the Microsoft website here.
