Jobs' Jobs Postings: RF Engineer Wanted!
Let's face it, Apple could teach the NSA a thing or two about security. Nothing like putting the fear of Steve into someone to get them to bear down and clam up. So, along with patent-watching and the occasional partner leak, about the only way to get any real information about what's new at Apple is via the good old help wanted adds.
Yesterday we mentioned in passing they were interested in a:
Camera Engineer with responsibilities for evaluation, qualification, implementation and tuning of camera subsystems in iPhone products.
While today it looks like they've set their iSights firmly on:
Sr. Wireless system Engineer [...] Familiar with RF fundamentals and RF test equipments (spectrum analyzer, network analyzer, signal generator), hands on for wireless system validation automation. Familiar with PC and network architecture. [...] Design and qualification expertise with IEEE 802.11 [...] Knowledge about Bluetooth, 3G, UWB, WiMAX, GPS, Mobile TV and similar wireless technologies and/or experience with wireless module integration into PC system or consumer products is a strong plus. The system integration issues include: radio coexistence, platform noise, module and system power consumption.
Though not as specific, this certainly seems to indicate Apple is looking increasingly towards the ultra-mobile, ubiquitously connected market they're working to establish with products like the iPhone, Mac Book Air, and perhaps... iTablet?
What do you think? Have the skills and want to work for Apple? Give them a call. Then give us a call and tell us everything you can before they drop the Glass and Aluminum Curtain down on you, b'okay?
