Introducing the XDA Job Board
There’s a lot of really great talent on XDA. Often times we get requests from outside companies seeking to hire developers and engineers for full-time positions in the mobile industry. Before today, we didn’t have a place to post these job openings.
Today we are launching the XDA Job Board. This will be a subforum under the Marketplace and will be read-only. Each job posting will have its own thread, and each post will contain contact info to directly apply for the job.
