Apple Bringing iPhone OS to New Platforms ➝

Apple is looking to hire a full time engineering manager to help bring iPhone OS to new platforms.

From the Job description:

The Core Platform team within Apple’s Core OS organization is looking for a talented and inspired manager to lead a team focused on bring-up of iPhone OS on new platforms.

My first guess would be an iPod nano-like device using a modified version of iPhone OS. I’m obviously pulling that out of thin air but I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple wanted to simplify development of their mobile devices by running the same OS on all of them.

802.11n Coming to the iPhone ➝

Apple is looking to hire a “Wifi Software Engineer” to work full time on what appears to be 802.11n for the iPhone.

From the job description:

We are looking for a talented and energetic software engineer for the iPhone WiFi team to help develop the next generation of mobile Wireless LAN technologies.

There have been rumors of 802.11n support in the current iPhone and iPod touch but the only references to such functionality I’ve been able to find have been in rumors before the device’s launch.

Apple is looking for a full time software engineer to work with their productivity team on a “rich internet application.”

From the job description:

The Productivity team (i.e. iWork) is seeking an energetic, highly motivated software engineer in building a scalable rich internet application. The person will be part of the core development team and engage in an area from design to development of the software system.

Besides exceptional programming skills and devotion to creating great software, we look for one or more of the following kinds of expertise or experience:

• JavaScript language and browser technology – understanding from inside-out, or
• Computer graphics – the mathematics, algorithms and programming, or
• Experience developing scalable rich internet application, or
• Experience developing presentation/collaboration or word processing projects

It appears that Apple is planning to add editing capabilities to iWork.com. This shouldn’t be too surprising — it’s simply a logical progression.
