Michael Jurewitz, a member of Apple's Worldwide Developer relations team, is leaving his current position in order to join Black Pixel, one of the top iOS and OS X development firms. Michael will join the team at a director level position focusing on client and internal software projects.
Michael has worked with Apple for the last seven years and says the best parts of his career have been the interaction with developers such as answering technical questions and helping independent developer teams create amazing applications for iOS and OS X.
For the past seven years I have worked in Apple's Worldwide Developer Relations team helping OS X and iOS developers build the best apps in the world. Working closely with many of you in the developer community has been the highlight of my career. I have loved every minute of helping to answer your technical questions, providing technical, business, or design guidance, planning and visiting with so many of you at WWDC, traveling around the world to share the Tech Talks with you, fielding bug reports, or just being someone at Apple for you to talk to. You have challenged me, helped me grow, amazed me, and inspired me. The iOS and OS X developer community is one of the best in the world. I am very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with all of you and I am excited to join your ranks.
Black Pixel has worked with several Fortune 100 companies as well as working on their own in-house apps such as NetNewsWire, Kaleidoscope, and Versions. Daniel Pasco of Black Pixel has also posted an entry on Black Pixel's blog welcoming Michael to the team and explaining some of what his roles will be after joining them.
Congratulations to both Black Pixel and Michael. We can't wait to see what you guys do together.
