Trending: It’s true: Amazon has been profitable for nearly two years, even without AWS cloud windfall

amazongamestudiosA few new job postings indicate the direction that Amazon is heading, at least initially, with its new gaming arm.

Amazon Game Studios is now seeking a Senior Software Engineer and the job description notes how the company is “passionate about building highly creative, exciting, and innovative entertainment for avid video game players.”

“Combining a startup atmosphere with the ambition to build cutting-edge technology, the game teams at Amazon are looking for a passionate engineer who wants to move fast, have fun, and make a big impact on the game industry,” the posting reads.

There is a similar new posting for a Software Development Manager. Both positions are based in Irvine, Calif., where employees from Double Helix Games — the studio Amazon acquired in February — are located. Each job also prefers experience with Unity, Unreal, CryEngine or “other 3D game engines.”

Amazon Game Studios is currently hiring for 53 positions as rumors continue to float about Amazon working on its own streaming media device and Android-based gaming console. Earlier this month, pictures of an apparent Amazon game controller were revealed.
