“Apple is gearing up for the global expansion of its tap-to-pay mobile wallet service, Apple Pay, with new hires sought to fill positions avialable around the world, including in China,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“This week, Apple began advertising a new position in Shanghai, discovered by AppleInsider, for an ‘Apple Pay Site Reliability Engineer,'” Hughes reports. “The 40-hour-per-week role will require collaboration with peers in both the U.S. and Europe, in what Apple has identified as a ‘follow-the-sun team.'”
“Apple Pay debuted in the U.S. in October, and currently the NFC-based contactless payment service remains exclusive to America. But a series of new hires suggest that Apple could be gearing up for a quick global expansion of the fledgling service,” Hughes reports. “In addition to the Shanghai-based engineer position, another Apple Pay job listing was spotted this week for a London-based intern. That advertisement disclosed Apple’s plans to also launch Apple Pay across Europe, the Middle East, India, and Africa.”
