New job posting indicates Apple working on ‘media streaming engine’ for iOS, OS X and Windows

Earlier today, Apple posted a job opening for a “Media Streaming Engineering Manager.” The job — part of Apple’s Interactive Media Group — would be critical in helping Apple work on media streaming engines for OS X, iOS and even Windows.

This fits nicely with the countless rumors that Apple is working hard on a music-in-the-cloud service, expected to be unveiled later this year — perhaps as early as June at WWDC.

Here’s the juicy bit from the job description:

Our team is responsible for implementing software services around linear audiovisual media. This includes local media playback, video-on-demand and live streaming of multimedia content. Our media engine is used across Apple products such as QuickTime, Safari, and iTunes as well as 3rd party applications.
