I don’t know what it is today with the job posting articles and perhaps I’m going out on a limb here even posting this simply due to the implications and possible hypothetical reasons this would be included in a job listing with Sony Playstation. A job posting over at Sony Playstation for a Senior Sever Engineer is up and skimming through it I found something interesting.
You may or may not remember about a post we made a little over a month ago about Google Ventures investing in the large iOS game publisher ngmoco. We also stated that any investment made by Google, Google Ventures, Google Pancakes or whatever, regardless of how separate they are, has meaning. Well look at this…ngmoco has an Android job posting!
