Apple Looking to Hire A ‘Seasoned Writer with Pop Culture Background’ Knowledge’
There is a recent rumor that Apple is expecting to launch a new music streaming service under the Beats brand. It seems that iTunes radio hasn’t been working so well, and thus maybe a reason behind the Beats acquisition. Now it seems that Apple is hiring specific type of person with strong knowledge in music and pop culture commentary, Music Ally reported Monday.
For about a year now, many have expected Apple to release the new iTunes music-subscription service. According to a well-informed blogger, the service, should be released with the iOS 8.4 software update, and will come stock with the Music iOS app and for non-Apple users, it can be used with the Android app.
The position Apple is looking to fill for the iTunes job was posted to LinkedIn about 19 days ago and based on the job description, this new hire for most of the time will focus on editorial and the other half on production duties. The position was for an London-based person with “a specific expertise in music journalism” who must be a “seasoned writer with broad pop culture background.”
The editorial duties focus on “writing, editing, managing a sea of freelancers,” as well as working collaboratively with business and content heads to “shape and define editorially driven merchandising promotions.”
Another part of the job based on the job description is that the person will be focused on “special projects and promotions.” Apple is looking for this person to work with the Apple’s partners in the music industry to ensure that they understand “the timelines and deliverables associated with getting these pages live, and making sure we execute flawlessly and on time.” Apple has been focusing on expanding the company’s editorial focus with news and have already hired a long-time BBC Radio 1, DJ Zane Lowe was relocating to Los Angeles to take a job at Apple.
