Microsoft job offer hints at Office for iOS (again)

Back in February we reported on another Office related rumor courtesy of The Daily, who published a screenshot of the Office Suite running on an iPad, which at the time Microsoft called fake. The Daily also said that Microsoft Office for Android and iOS was already completed and would be released on November 10th.

Now, 9to5Mac is reporting that Microsoft is seeking a software engineer to work with the Outlook team and test what Microsoft calls:  “Microsoft’s next move on the Mac and on iOS.” which seems to indicate that Outlook - at the very least - for iOS could become a reality.

While it isn't proof that an Office suite will be released for iOS, it does seem to indicate the possibility.

MacRumors also points out that Microsoft already has several other iOS apps, such as SkyDrive and OneNote among others, but this job listing doesn't indicate that testing in those areas would be required.
