Heard on the grape-vine: Vine seeks Android engineer
Vine can best be described as a video version of Instagram where 6 second video loops are posted for members to see. Currently an iOS exclusive, the company's recent posting of its job openings has given away its expansion plans. A tweet from co-founder Colin Kroll states that Vine is looking for 6 engineers to work alongside the 3 that already toil in Vine's New York office.

The openings are for a Dev-ops Engineer, Lead Android Engineer, Lead iOS Engineer, Product Designer, Software Engineer and a Software Engineer Front-End. If you look at the second job opening, it is for a lead Android engineer. We might not be detectives, but it sure sounds like Vine is looking to build a version of the app for Android, doesn't it?

Twitter is behind Vine and each 6 second video loop can have be hashtagged. In fact,anything you can do with a tweet can be done with a Vine. Just in case our brief description of the app doesn't really explain it to you thoroughly, one of the other co-founders, Dom Hofmann, put up a Vine of some of the work being done in (and to) Vine's New York office. You can access it by clicking on this link.
