Apple Maps is still in a pretty sorry state, especially after the platform drove people into the middle of the forest and left them there last year. To reverse the slide down-hill, Apple Australia is looking to hire a developer to improve map-quality Down Under.
In a job posting, Apple is looking for a quality assurance/developer to work on dialling down the suck when it comes to Maps:
The Maps team is looking for people with knowledge of mapping, great testing skills, and local expertise to help us build better and better maps.
In this position, you will be responsible for the quality of map data for your region. You will test changes to map data, provide feedback on unique local map requirements, collect ground truth information, and evaluate competing products.
Here’s hoping that they hire someone. And quickly. I want to really like Apple Maps. [Mactalk]
