In the Wake of Hacking, Microsoft Reaches Out for Cyber Security Engineers

Jack Gardner



In a new LinkedIn job posting noticed by DualShockers, Microsoft is looking for a software engineer to help make the Xbox One "the most secure and trustworthy consumer computing devices in the world." 


The posting paints the position rather cheerfully:

Are you passionate about consumer Devices and Security? Enjoy your Xbox for Entertainment and Gaming? Would you like to build a device so secure, that it is a nightmare for the most skilled hackers, yet a delight for all our customers? Have you ever found yourself thinking about how to protect a game or app running on the Xbox console or prevent anyone from cheating when playing online? If so, then we might have a very good opportunity for you!

Applicants are expected to hold a BA or MS in computer science as well as six years of experience in software design and development.

Cyberspace is becoming a more tenuous place for gaming as more people learn how to carry out basic DDOS attacks and more advanced hacking maneuvers. Good to see that Microsoft is at least trying to hire people to do something about it.
