Amazon recently published a new job posting on their website explaining that they were looking for a Sr. Software Development Manager in Virtual Reality for their Amazon Video platform. Today, you can even see this job posting on their own website.
This is not the official Amazon VR logo
The description gives some really interesting details about Amazon's plans to enter the VR space.
Amazon Video is seeking a talented Senior Software Development Manager to lead our Virtual Reality team. This team is responsible for building the Virtual Reality experience within Amazon Video.
Entertainment is evolving rapidly. The future will not be limited to passive 2D experiences. The Virtual Reality team will explore and create the platform and interface for immersive storytelling. This will include an ingestion and playback platform for Virtual Reality experiences.
While we know that Netflix and Hulu have already entered the VR space, it was only a matter of time before Amazon's first move! We are excited to see what Amazon VR will look like.
