Although it’s only officially available in the US, many people around the world (plenty of us Ausdroid people included) have found ways to get one of Google’s Chromecast devices internationally, though it hasn’t been without its problems. Having to wait days for shipping, having to pay a markup to get a product that’s only a shade over $30 in the US… let’s just say it hasn’t all been fun.
However, it looks as if Google is gearing up to launch the Chromecast officially in more markets. Google has listed a number of jobs across London, Paris and Hamburg working for the team that is developing “new designs, experiences, and technologies” to showcase the best of Google and Google-branded hardware –including Chromecast.
In the strongest sign yet, Google is also seeking a product manager for Chromecast (International) based in Mountain View, CA. Google advises that it is “looking for a product manager who is passionate about launching consumer products in international markets” in the job advertisement for the position.
To keep an eye on the manufacturing and sales angles, Google is also seeking a technical account manager to be based in South Korea and a quality engineer for Shanghai, China.
It certainly looks like Chromecast will soon be spreading its wings and officially landing elsewhere, and we can’t wait.
