Sony’s Job hotline is blossoming with positions; mostly network security.


Is it me, or is this a coincidence? The ongoing PlayStation Network outage has reached its 23rd day. With that comes the job openings at the Sony Headquarters in San Diego, Ca.

Sony HQ is one of the buildings that sits in the area close to Sorrento Valley, 20 minutes north of downtown San Diego. Companies such as Qualcomm and Kodak rest in this valley. I, personally, have no job knowledge about the positions opening up for Sony, however, they do sound a little bit alarming and, at the same time, comforting.

Positions such as Identity and Access Engineer, Data warehouse solutions architect, Server systems software architect, QA tester PlayStation Network, Software QA supervisor, and Network Operations Center manager have all emerged in the company’s job site. What does this all mean? Does it mean the positions are now open, or are they simply reinforcing their digital fortress with more man power? Sony has not been clear as of late on what they intend or are currently doing with this down time, so one has to assume that they are working nonstop in order to restore the network. Hopefully these positions are filled soon, and the company finds its way back up from below its misfortune.

    What they need to do is hire the 17 year olds hacking into psn and kick them useless old hacks who couldnt secure a bang in a brothal. give the hackers a chance to secure it.

    breaking through security is easy than creating security that is unhackable besides the obvious reasons. When breaking through some sort of security, its very analytical but you have all the data right in front of you. When creating security measures, you have to try to defend against something you can’t see.

    true but the people who design this hack software would have a better chance defending against it.

    Those positions are actually available because the former employees were “reintegrated to the market”.

    That’s what I think.

    you do realize the servers sony is using is taught in trade schools etc. It is not magic nor is it amazing. It is ballzy though for someone to do it simply because its illegal.
