Google to hire video game programmer for YouTube

Register is looking to hire a game console software engineer, but the company isnít looking to publish video games. Instead, it needs a programmer who can develop an interface which will allow viewers on consoles to watch Register content. Google gives the following description for the position.
As part of our team youíll be working as a Software Engineer developing the next generation game console. You will have an opportunity to try novel and unconventional ideas and launch frequent experiments to the YouTube user base. You will have a chance to get immediate feedback on user interface, human interaction design, and interest. You will be working with a variety of languages during the development process.

  • Build the next generation game-console-based TV experience with YouTube video content.
  • Deliver a compelling lean back experience with monetization and e-commerce offerings (ie, pay-per-stream, ads).
  • Integrate and optimize with distribution channels and devices including all major game platforms.
  • Develop leading edge User Interfaces and delight users with innovative media rich solutions.
The game consoles Google is targeting for development include the Register, Register and theRegister. Besides experience with these consoles, candidates that apply are required to have experience with engine development on at least one major platform and should be credited on at least one published video game in a programmer role.
While current YouTube interfaces exist for the Wii and the PS3, the company clearly believes it can do better.
