Have some GPS skills and hoping to land a job at one of the biggest and best tech companies on the planet? Apple’s looking to hire someone with experience in GPS, A-GPS, LBS, and navigation algorithms for an exciting new feature in iOS.
There have been rumors that Apple has been working on smart mapping applications that re-route your path based on environment variables like construction or heavy traffic. There have also been mention from Apple that they were collecting cellular tower information during “Locationgate” for a future product that they’re working on currently. It turned out that Apple was crowd-sourcing tower information to help with some future, unnamed project.
If you need any other reason outside of exciting things being on the horizon in location aware services, then you may want to find another field.
Get applying peeps. We need a source inside Apple!
