Bonus opportunity good for one month only
Apple may be looking to quickly expand its iCloud division if a recent rumor, reported by 9to5Mac and other outlets, turns out to be true. The company is allegedly offering existing employees a $10,000 bonus for each new candidate they put forth to the iCloud group that is hired. The prize is said to be only good for the next month, indicating that Apple wants the new hires on board quickly.
The company began openly hiring for cloud systems software engineers a few months ago, putting together "a small team" that would be working on "the most exciting new products and services." At the time, Apple was looking for people who were conversant with Java, Linux, Hadoop and NoSQL databases, along with RDBMS programming and Oracle familiarity. [via 9to5Mac]
