Apple seeks manager to lead ‘high-priority’ next-gen Apple TV development

“A recent job posting by Apple looking for an Apple TV software engineer backs up rumors that the company is finally preparing to expand its presence in the living room,” Jordan Kahn reports for 9to5Mac.

  1. I call BS.

    It’s likely an Apple plant to get the media talking about it. What company would reveal so much in a job posting? In this industry, you’re careful what you say in a posting. They’re more generic and skills focused. “Seeking a Chief Software Engineer for Apple TV. Must be able to lead a team of Engineers. Experience with Java, Agile, Objective-C, ability to work closely with designers and product managers… blah blah”.

    But not “high priority”… red flag there. Nice try Apple!
