Job postings can be so revealing (see I4U’s Microsoft/Halo report). And now through a target="blank" title="Netflix Job Center">Netflix job listing, it appears the popular movie rental/streaming company may soon expand to a Wii and/or PS3 near you.
While the job listing does not mention the consoles by name, Netflix is looking for an “engineering leader for the gaming platforms team,” with “experience with digitalmedia on embedded platforms; ideally on one or more gaming consoles.” In fact, the word “consoles” is used quite a bit in the posting, and currently Netflix is only available on one console, the Xbox 360.
Last month, CrunchGear reported on a Netflix survey looking to gauge public interest for Netflix on the PS3, suggesting a definite interest by at least one party.
Interested in the gig? The basic technical requirements for the position include:
Fluency in multiple languages including C/C++ and Java
Engineering and leadership experience at a successful company in the console gaming space
Experience with digital media on embedded platforms; ideally on one or more gaming consoles

iPhone 6 Plus Has Not the Best Smartphone Screen
The experts at DisplayMate have tested the new iPhone 6 Plus display. While it is impressive, it is not the best smartphone display on the market. Samsung is in the lead. Is it time for Apple to switch to OLED?
About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
