Job postings can be so revealing (see I4U’s Microsoft/Halo report). And now through a 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 digital media 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

Thanks to CrunchGear for the heads up.
