upcoming xbox one models

There are already quite a few Xbox models available on the market: the good old Xbox 360, the Xbox One, Xbox One S or the Xbox One X. Microsoft is reportedly working on a new Xbox One model and is already looking for
a Senior Electrical Engineer to join the team working on ‘future Xbox design projects‘.

The company recently posted a new job listing on its Careers webpage publishing a series of interesting details pointing to a future Xbox One model. Microsoft is looking for a ‘Electrical Engineer DRAM Memory Lead’ capable of working on the existing Xbox technologies as well as on future Xbox design projects.

We are seeking a qualified candidate for a Senior Engineer to lead the DRAM solutions for the Xbox console hardware development team. DRAM solutions include DDR3, GDDR5, GDDR6 and future DRAM technologies. The successful candidate will be the primary technical focal point for existing and leading-edge memory technologies on currently shipping and future Xbox design projects.

Microsoft is developing new memory solutions for the Xbox One

As far as the job tasks are concerned, Microsoft revealed that one of the main tasks involves integrating the right memory solutions into the console. This is not an easy task since there is a series of constraints such as power, cost, reliability, performance requirements that need to be taken into account.

Other job tasks involve defining the system requirements for each memory technology, working within an internal team to thoroughly test the new technologies before integrating them into the final product, and collaborating with partner teams and external vendors to identify specific components and validate the chosen technology.

You can read the job listing on Microsoft’s Career webpage. Of course, if your qualifications match the description, go ahead and apply for this job.
