Recently, we came across some job hiring from Microsoft for its Windows Mobile team. Now, Microsoft has posted yet another listing and it is for the Principle SW Engineering Lead (3D scanning and augmented reality on mobile devices).
With Redstone 2 (Windows 10 Creators Update), 3D for everyone was one of the biggest offerings and for that part, most of the focus has been only on the PC side, while mobile is yet to taste 3D and augmented reality. In fact, there is no sign of fun 3D Scan app which Microsoft demoed last year, yet.
The new job opening is directed at 3D scanning and augmented reality on mobile devices which further adds to the rumors of Redstone 3, which many of you people believe will mostly aim at the development of Windows 10 Mobile with some really innovative traits unlike the Redstone 2, which to me has been quite boring, feature-wise.
We’re a team of experienced developers and incubators working on truly inspiring new technology. We are building ground-breaking experiences at the cutting edge of technology. We transform our ideas into reality by shipping first-to-market products. We are part of Microsoft broader 3D for Everyone program, you can read more about our vision here http://mashable.com/2016/10/26/microsoft-3d-platform.
You’re a software developer with a stellar track record and you love to learn and take on new challenges. You’re thrilled to apply your development talents working at the intersection of cutting edge experience and technology, demonstrating your knowledge to build incredible shipping software products. You’re looking to make significant contributions to the early stages of a project with huge growth potential. You’ll be working closely with a talented cross-discipline team to develop products that push the bar on what’s possible with new technologies. You’ll lead the implementation and maintenance of new features, and be responsible for delivering them on-time and at high quality, while partnering with the rest of the technical leadership team to deliver solid technical mentorship and feedback.
It definitely would be very interesting to observe how Microsoft plans to hand over 3D and AR/VR experiences for its mobile customers, and that, only time will tell.
