Microsoft Hiring Hacker, Modder For Next Xbox Experience

Microsoft looking to hire what appears to be an individual with a solid background in hacking.
In a job listing on Microsoft's site for a Service Engineer, the company describes their ideal candidate as someone who tends to "void the warranty on every device" they own, and make "devices do things never intended by the manufacturer."
Here's an excerpt detailing exactly what the Big M is looking for:
What could this listing mean? They do specifically reference the "next generation of entertainment," so it's probably safe to say that this is related to the supposed Xbox 720 in some way, shape, or form. With all of the rumors going around that Microsoft may plan to block used games with its new console, perhaps this is a measure to prevent users from circumventing whatever walls the system may have in place.
