Microsoft hiring to improve Avatars

Xbox One avatars

Microsoft are looking for new software engineers to work on new and updated versions of the Xbox Avatars.

Two job posts were added to Microsoft careers earlier this week, both looking to hire people to build upon the Nintendo-inspired console versions of you.

Since their introduction six years ago, Xbox avatars have become the social identity for our gaming customers across Microsoft properties, making their way into Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox mobile apps, Windows, and into major and indie games. As we cross the threshold to a unified operating system and product experience across Microsoft, it is time to for Xbox avatars to also advance to the next level. Come with us, as we take Xbox avatars on their biggest adventure yet with higher fidelity and a bigger stage in new Xbox experiences. You will be part of the broader Xbox Experiences team, which owns the Xbox One Shell, and the Xbox experiences across console, desktop, slate, mobile, iOS, and Android. We are a team of innovative veterans that has played significant roles in launching Xbox, Xbox Live, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Kinect. Come join us, and our wave of monthly releases, generating delight and praise from our customers.   

As expected, no information on time scales was given, but expect better looking avatars to be added via a future update.
