The job listing is asking for a software tester for this top-secret project that has apparently been scheduled to begin building in a month’s time and the guys say appears to have something to do with government and security clearance.
The project whatever it is is a v1 feature set and the Windows Phone 7 team are looking for and experienced SDET to fill the position of product line customer advocate.
