You can find the full job description and apply via Microsoft.com. A brief summary of the JD is copied below. PS. While enthusiasm is appreciated and encouraged, please do not submit resumes directly to me. That’s what the website is for! (Seriously. Don’t send me your resume.)
The Xbox Live Digitally Distributed Games (DDG) team is a newly formed organization focused on digital distribution of games via Xbox Live Marketplace.
