Foxconn Looking for 3,000 Engineers for Firefox OS

That’s three times the 500-1,000 engineers it initially said it wanted to develop HTML5 and cloud applications

Foxconn wants to hire 3,000 people to support the development of new devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops and TVs based on Mozilla's Firefox operating system.

That's three times the 500-1,000 engineers it initially said it wanted to develop HTML5 and cloud applications for the open source OS.

"There will be no budget limit for fostering software talent," it now says.

It previously said it is "executing on a vision of eight screens, one network and one cloud" and "developing a brand new integrated approach to providing hardware, software, content, and services."

Firefox OS and its apps are built entirely with HTML5, JavaScript and new Web Application APIs including emerging Device, Web App and System API standards pioneered by Mozilla.
