A new job posting (http://jobs.apple.com/index.ajs?BID=1&method=mExternal.showJob&RID=66205&CurrentPage=3) shows that Apple is looking for Mac Application Reviewers for the upcoming Mac App Store. Here’s the job description:
“Apple Worldwide Developer Relations is seeking a software application specialist; someone who is meticulous, analytical, able to exercise objective analysis, and able to thrive in a fast-paced environment and has strong customer service skills.
“Candidate needs to be able to organize and prioritize a heavy workload. The candidate must be hardworking, detail-oriented, and able to work quickly & efficiently. We˙re looking for a self-starter, a quick learner with excellent communication skills, who is able to work independently and as part of a team.
“Experience with Mac OS X required. Proficiency in written French, German or Japanese a plus.”
At the Oct. 20 “Back to the Mac” event, Craig Federighi, Apple’s vice president of engineering for OS X, demoed The Mac App Store. He said it brings the Apple App Store experience to Mac OS X, making discovering, installing and updating Mac apps easier than ever, he says. Like on the iPad, you purchase apps using your iTunes account and they download and install in just one step.
App updates are delivered directly through the Mac App Store, so it’s easy to keep all of your apps up to date. The Mac App Store will be available for Mac OS X 10.6 (“Snow Leopard”) and will be included in Mac OS X Lion when it ships next summer.
