Have 10 years in marketing, product management or development? Five-plus years in the mobile industry?
Experience working with mobile operators and marketplaces? Helped the initial launch of products in the mobile industry?
Why, that sounds like a few people we know around here!
Those are a few of the requirements of a job listing on seattle.computerjobs.com and spied by CNET as a possible indicator that Microsoft has its own applications store in the works.
The job title is listed as "Senior Project Manager - Skymarket," with the following description:
This is a unique opportunity and time of rapid change in the mobile industry for a Senior Product Manager in the Mobile Communications Services team to drive the launch of a v1 marketplace service for Windows Mobile.
Along with the responsibilities you might expect in this sort of job comes this particular nugget:
Preparation and driving the cross group collaboration with stakeholders in the commercial launch of the marketplace service with the launch of WM 7.
Interesting. Might that mean that Windows Mobile 7 will be held up for the creation of an app store? That might just be worth the wait.
