Microsoft Windows Blue & Windows Phone BlueJust a while ago, we informed readers that Apple is searching for a new engineer to revamp the next-generation Apple TV to enhance the experience of the users.

However, Cupertino isn’t the only one recruiting.

A report from ZDnet states that Microsoft has made a job posting on Microsoft Careers site that Redmond is searching for a software development engineer, who’ll be working on the Core Experience Team in Windows Sustained Engineering (WinSE).

There’s also the mention of the highly rumored ‘Windows Blue’.

Windows Blue is going to be a refresh of Windows 8, and it’s expected to arrive in mid-2013.

There’s also another job posting found by a Twitter user that suggests a Windows Blue Phone.

The second job posting requires a senior development manager in the Office Team. The successful candidate will be required to realize the vision of building a high quality Microsoft Excel app for Windows Blue Phone.

Windows 8 hasn’t gone down well with users, and Redmond is hoping to gain some attention and change previous minds with a refresh.

What do you think? Can they pull it off?
