343 Industries is seeking a software development engineer for backend services.
After revealing that Halo 5 on the Xbox One could connect with Microsoft’s Azure Cloud service, the company has once again mentioned the same in a recent job listing for a Software Development Engineer. This is different from another listing that appeared days ago since it’s focused more on “building the next generation of backend services to power the Halo Universe” rather than creating companion pieces to the main game.
“We are looking for a driven Software Development Engineer in Test with a strong background in testing services. If you are passionate about the technical challenges of testing large scale, real-time services, and you’re looking to join a group of engineers who are pushing the envelope to reinvent the future of entertainment powered by cloud services, then this might be the job for you.
“As part of this position, you will own the planning, implementation, and execution of feature areas while collaborating with developer, PM, and producer counterparts across multiple teams within 343 Industries. Your background should include experience testing multiplayer matchmaking, server based applications, cloud services, and consumer experiences. Our team is focused on continuous improvement and fast iteration cycles. The ability to work in a quickly changing environment will be a key to success.”
Familiarity Xbox and Xbox Live along with experience with Azure or similar Cloud services was also listed. What could it mean? Time will tell when E3 rolls around but suffice to say that 343 Industries is busy with the franchise.
