Apple has posted two new job listings for the title of “iOS Software Engineer.” While the two full-time positions discovered by “AppleInsider” (http://www.appleinsider.com) have different job descriptions, both describe an emphasis on remote storage for data access.
Here are the two job descriptions: “Apple is hiring outstanding operations engineers to deliver and manage the next generation of hosted infrastructure serving Apple products and devices. Seize this ground floor opportunity to help us build the world’s best hosted platforms at massive scale.
“Apple is hiring experienced software engineers to work on distributed computing for data with non-trivial properties, and efficient online services for data access. This is an opportunity to contribute to the backend foundation for Apple products, devices and overall experience delivered to millions of Apple customers.”
Some may view the hirings as further evidence of a cloud-based iTunes or other MobileMe-style services from Apple, says “AppleInsider.” The hirings could also be an effort by the company to bolster its new cloud-centric Apple TV, a device that also runs a version of the lightweight iOS operating system, the article adds.
