Microsoft is Recruiting for a Revamp of Its Xbox Avatars
Microsoft is looking to delve deeper into its avatar personalization by hiring two new software engineers to broaden its Mii-inspired characters.
It seems Microsoft has grown tired of the baseline avatars (so have Mii, err.. we) that it has been offering for the past six years and it's now looking to expand them. The Big M is seeking two new software engineers for its team: a "Senior Software Engineer" and a "Software Engineer II – Avatar," DualShockers reports.
"As we cross the threshold to a unified operating system and product experience across Microsoft, it is time to for Xbox avatars to also advance to the next level," the job description states. "At Xbox we're looking for an experienced graphics engineer that will work with us to grow the avatar platform across all our platforms, leveraging the power of Xbox One, the far reach of Windows, and the intimacy of touch on mobile devices."
TL;DR? Microsoft is looking to up its avatar game not only on Xbox One, but also on its Windows and mobile devices and it needs a fresh set of eyes to help them with it. If you think you can give them what it needs, the job opportunities are there, waiting for your application.
