Microsoft is eager to speak with former employees of OnLive. That is the message the company is communicating and they will be hosting a “networking mixer” on August 28th at their Mountain View, California location.
According to sources, the company is looking to add players in a number of areas. Most of the positions would be in developing products and services for the Xbox brand and Kinect.
After OnLive’s transition, a number of former OnLive employees have been hired back by the new company, and apparently the company is hopeful that they might be able to hire back even more former employees. That said, a number of OnLive former employees have lashed out about the entire mess and how it was handled. In our opinion, the backlash is understandable.
