After a lot of headlines recently regarding WWE and its stance on talent streaming on Twitch, the company is now hiring for a role related to the platform.
WWE took to the ‘Careers’ section of its corporate website to post that it is looking for a “GFX Motion Designer”, which suggests that the company could be looking to launch some streams of its own.
WWE released Zelina Vega from her contract yesterday in what would seem to be a result of her not agreeing with the company’s demands that talent can’t stream on Twitch independently.
