My Phone is Microsoft’s freemium cloud-based backup solution with utilities that will help you locate your phone and wipe it if it’s lost or stolen. The service adds a lot of function that’s been typically reserved for Exchange customers to the consumer level at an affordable price. Now, a recent job posting reveals that Microsoft is gearing up for the second iteration of this web service.
Here’s the job posting:
Job Category: Software Engineering: Test
Product: Windows Mobile
Division: Entertainment & Devices Division
The mobile and online areas are two of the most competitive and innovative areas in software today. Microsoft has strong competitors, but we also have great technologies, some amazing ideas, and a huge commitment to do what it takes to win from the executive leadership team. The My Phone service is the initial release in a bigger vision to combine these two critical areas into a compelling customer experience, enhancing the Windows Phone platform with powerful web integration scenarios around data protection, device management, social networking, location awareness, ease of use, integration with partner services, and much more.
The My Phone test team is looking for an SDET to join us as we embark on our 2.0 release. Our client work involves the development & testing of features that form part of the next release of Windows Mobile. Our server work involves development & testing for the next release of our datacenter hosted web services & web portal. Experience in either (or both) of these areas is highly preferred. The successful candidate will primarily own testing features for either client or server, but will work closely with the other.
