Makes you wonder what they are hiring for.

OpenWebOS is nearly out. They don't do any adaption for legacy devices. They do not look for hardwarepartners at all. There don't seem to be anything close to a plan (not to speak of a solid strategy) for OpenWebOS. They already laid off people off WebOs division again and again.
So who would start there? For what?

WebOSInternals should hire. They did and will do all their possible for the survival of WebOS.

looks like the biggest surviving part of palm that HP is keeping is their patents.

That is unfortunate, but the jobs will still be there when the site comes back.

Some of their job posts mention that they're not just hiring from Silicon Valley.

I looked on the internal to HP jobs board. There were two jobs for Product Management (That was my search), so I'm assuming there are others too.
