Microsoft is apparently looking for a Senior Software Development Engineer to help it further boost the performance of both its new Xbox One console and the older Xbox 360 model, GamingBolt reveals, speculating that the company wants to further improve and optimize the performance of the consoles’ processors.

“[Microsoft is] seeking a Senior Software Development Engineer with deep technical expertise in networking, multiplayer, cloud compute, and game/service interactions, as well as significant game development experience overall,” the job listing says. “You can be a key part of making Microsoft gaming platforms – including Xbox One, Xbox Live, Kinect, Xbox 360, Windows, and future offerings – a success.”

Furthermore, the job listing says that experience in the following areas is a “plus,” including “low level debugging on Windows platforms; CPU performance tuning on one or more platforms; C/C++ compiler architecture; assembly languages; digital signal processing; Direct3D and general 3D graphics concepts.”..

Did they say how much they pay?

Since it's MS I'd expect a respectable pay check for my services.

So that if the x1 fails even more he'll become the scapegoat for the corporation?

Nope, it was another lie just like cloud power and halo tv series exclusive to broadcast on the x1 tv portion.
