According to a recent job listing, Apple is looking to employ a Software QA Engineer to work on a forthcoming release of the company's iWork suite for Mac, iOS, and iCloud. Specifically, the job advertisement notes that the successful candidate will work on Apple's "next generation of Desktop, Mobile, and Web application/services," with a predominant focus on iWork. Besides the recent posting, which was first spotted by Apple Bitch, it would appear that Apple is looking to add a number of further members to its iWork team. These include a Production Specialist, a Technical Production Ninja, a Verification Engineer, and more. Indeed, we recently argued that iWork is one Apple product that needs to be improved in the coming months:
In recent years, however, Apple’s suite seems to have become little more than an afterthought. How else to explain the fact that Mac versions of Pages, Numbers, and Keynote haven’t seen a significant update since the waning days of the George W. Bush presidency? You can’t, of course.As such, it looks like our wish is soon to be granted. With WWDC 2013 scheduled for June, it could even be that a preview of the next-generation suite is offered during Apple's keynote event. What are you hoping to see in iWork '14 for Mac and iOS?
