Apple has opened the doors of a new software and engineering office in Seattle, attempting to attract local talent in the shadow of Microsoft's Redmond campus. The new office is looking to recruit talented individuals who will join former employees of Union Bay Network, the networking start-up Apple has confirmed it acquired. "Ever wanted to work at Apple, but didn't want to live in Cupertino?"
Benn Bollay, former chief technology officer at Union Bay, is now listed as a manager at Apple on LinkedIn and appears to be hiring for the new Seattle office. Bollay recently published a notice (no longer available) on LinkedIn, stating that Apple is "looking for talented multidisciplinary engineers to design and develop the core infrastructure services and environments driving every online customer experience at Apple ranging from iCloud to iTunes."
It's an interesting move for Apple, but shouldn't come as much of a surprise as the company works to improve its backend services.
