Microsoft is not wasting time boosting its Android efforts. Just two weeks after it was first created, Microsoft is already hiring people to work on the new Android Microsoft Platform and Experience (AMPX) Team (via Windows Latest)
There are two (1, and 2) specific job openings at Microsoft relating to the AMPX team. Both are for Senior Software Engineers, and both mention that “The Android Microsoft Platform and Experiences Team is building the future.” Naturally, the listing also mentions “powerful connections to Windows, M365, and Azure” as well. You’ll also find the necessary requirements to apply for the jobs. Amongst others, Microsoft is looking for someone with experience driving quality with Android OS, application, or service products and features, as well as experience building tools and automation for Android applications and/or OS.
The job listings don’t reveal much about what’s happening at the AMPX teams, but it does indicate that Microsoft really wants to take Android seriously. We already saw this when Microsoft rebranded Your Phone to Phone Link, and delivered the ability to run Android apps on Windows 11. So, things can only get better from here on out.
