delouraIf one thing is very clear, Google has been taking gaming quite seriously as of late. Last month they brought ex-SCEA manager of developer relations Mark DeLoura (pictured) on board as their Developer Advocate for Gaming, they recently acquired LabPixies to help boost development of games and apps for Google’s various platforms, and have put an emphasis on game development with events at Google I/O. Now they are searching for the next piece of the puzzle, a Product Management Leader for Games.

Think you have what it takes? The job is currently waiting to be filled, and the duties include both aiding in-house development as well as extending the reach of Google to third-part developers.

We all know gaming hasn’t exactly been a strong point for Android, but with the speed and efficiency of Froyo and some powerful handsets coming to market, hardware and software should no longer be an issue. Google looks to be getting their act together when it comes to the development side, so hopefully it won’t be long until we are enjoying some truly great Android games.
