Microsoft recently posted a job description from the Windows Phone 7 team asking for an interested person to join project that is designed to "disrupt the market." It is unknown exactly what this means, but it has something to do with the government and security clearances.
Division: Windows Phone Division
Wish you were part of a team whose charter is to create experiences our customers simply can't live without? Are you excited when you see a user experience that delights customers? We are a team working on a top secret project inside the Windows Phone division. Our mission...GO BIG! DISRUPT THE MARKET!
We can't give you many details on this JD, but I can assure you we have a passionate group of engineers charged and ready to take on the challenge. It's a v1 feature set and we are completing planning in 1 month, so timing is perfect. We are looking for an experienced SDET to play the role of product line customer advocate. In this role you would be on point to work with product planning, design, UX research and the feature team to glue pieces of feature together and build delighting user experiences.

Come make our product sing to customers! It's a chance to see your work showcased by millions of customers for years to come!
Rumors are that this has something to do with a secure instant messaging client, possibly for government use or for those with high security clearance. What do you guys think it is? Post your comments below.
