Microsoft has been working hard to establish its footing in the mixed reality space. The company is now hiring talent for its mixed reality team to work on what appears to be an interesting new project. The job description mentions that the person hired for the job is going to work on a “massively social gaming and entertainment experience” for PC and Xbox. The ideal candidate will be someone who has an interest in massively multiplayer games, the listing mentions.
“Do you love MMOs? Are you excited about Virtual Reality? Would you like every Xbox user to experience your design every time they use it? We are embarking on a bold charter and need your help us take the next step,” the job listing states.
It adds that the Xbox Mixed Reality team is looking for an experienced senior design manager who has deep expertise and passion around crafting immersive social systems and experiences. The team is looking to build a massively social gaming and entertainment experience for both PC and Xbox.
The ideal candidate will need to have shipped at least 3 AAA “consumer entertainment products” and will also have 7 or more years of experience with Photoshop, Illustrator, PowerPoint as well as a strong understanding of designing in 3D.
It’s too soon to say right now precisely what the experience that the team is working on is going to be, but at least the job description makes it seem like it’s going to be something very interesting.
