Sony Asks: Do You Know the Way To San Jose?
We thought a recruitment ad placed by Sony on LinkedIn last month raises a few questions as to where the sleeping giant is going next.
Senior Staff Engineer (Android) – Digital Reader Business Division at Sony Electronics based in San Jose
It clearly would indicate Sony is looking at Android with the new job having responsibility for, ‘developing application software for digital reading and other consumer electronic devices.’ So is Sony thinking Android tablet, mobiles, eink readers, multi platform and will this engineer make the difference?
If anyone what’s to apply you should note that apart from the usual technical requirements to both understand technical jargon and program in it, the applicant will find that a ‘linguistic skill in Japanese is a definite plus.’
