Amazon job posting reveals a Virtual Reality Platform is in the works

According to a job posting first spotted by UploadVR, it appears Amazon is building a virtual reality platform. The ad calls for a senior manager to lead a virtual reality team which will create a “platform and interface for immersive storytelling.” It continues to say the task “will include an ingestion and playback platform for Virtual Reality experiences,” which makes it sound like Amazon isn’t just interested in making VR content for devices like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but possibly a platform where other creators can submit their VR content. Netflix has already released their first VR app and Hulu is scheduled to release their own app this spring, so it’s no surprise Amazon wants in on the VR action.
