It's Really Happening, Folks - Job Listings for Classic Servers Posted -

Blizzard has posted a number of job listings for Classic World of Warcraft. At the moment, most are centered around the engineering side of the move, but it's a sign that Blizzard is serious about the implementation of the "vanilla" WoW experience.

This is for a Senior Software Engineer, Classic WoW in Irvine, CA:

Travel Back in Time to a World of Warcraft before the Mists of Pandaria parted, and before Deathwing broke the world.  When Blackrock Mountain, the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj, and the floating citadel of Naxxramas were the most difficult challenges in Azeroth.

The World of Warcraft team is working on bringing that world back to our players with Classic WoW, and we need engineers to help us bring the past into the present.

Responsibilities include building gameplay systems, transforming database data, building UI elements, repackaging binary distributions, and working closely with designers to revive the classic game elements. 

The ideal candidate has a passion for World of Warcraft, is unafraid of stepping into unfamiliar systems, has a strong understanding of C++, and previous experience with Oracle, Lua, or both.

Think you might qualify? You can check out all of the listings at the link above or this one for the Senior Software Engineer.
