Right now, Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 OS is waiting for the next major upgrade – the anticipated “Mango” release.

It’s believed that Windows Phone 8, aka “Apollo” is the next version after that, rumored to be coming in mid-2012.

According to a recent Microsoft job posting, it seems that Microsoft are looking for a Software Development Engineer to test out and help build “the next version of Windows”.

Here’s part of it:

“Want to be part of making Windows Phone 8 a reality? Want to work on a strategic and exciting product targeted at the next version of Windows? Then the Consumer eXperience (ConX) team is the place for you! The Windows Phone team is taking on a huge challenge stirring up the out of box experience for Windows Phone 8 and is committed to building/improving a compelling and dynamic high quality look and feel to our end user experience.

Our test team needs a few more key folks to compliment the talent already onboarded. We are looking for experienced and intelligent engineers to join our team! Join us in our mission to bring the most compelling Windows Phone experience to customers to date!”.

Can’t wait to see what the new user experience will be like…
