2012-04-18 17.43.41I’ve been thinking a lot about hiring recently, having just been through the whole interviewing process as part of my move to Microsoft Studios. Now I’m thinking about hiring again because… my team is hiring!

I’m the development manager for one of the studios here within Microsoft Studios. We have several positions open. These are not only for developers with game experience but also great generalist developers who aren’t afraid about working with some fantastic cutting edge technologies. I’m not kidding here. I’ve been in the software business for nearly two decades now and this is one of the most interesting things I’ve ever worked on.

There are more but here are just a few of the positions we’re hiring for right now. There’ll be more coming later. Above all I’m looking for smart people who can solve tough problems and get things done. It goes without saying that the team works in a pretty agile way. Trust me, it’s a great project.
