Apple is seeking 'photography enthusiasts' in its retail staff to test Photos for OS X

July 15, 2014

Cupertino is reportedly looking for retail staff with special expertise in photography to test its in-development Photos app for OS X.

The news comes from 9to5mac, which explains that “multiple retail employees” provided the website with the below message reportedly sent out from Apple. It reads:

We are seeking a technical and passionate photography enthusiast to join our Quality Assurance team working on Photos for OS X. You will be part of a fast moving team of specialists tasked with delivering the next generation of photography tools for Apple.

The website adds that Apple usually offers programs such as this “for retail employees that have worked at Apple for at least a year.” Successful applicants will reportedly need to relocate to the company’s Cupertino, California-based headquarters.

Unveiled at WWDC, Cupertino’s Photos for OS X application is replacing both iPhoto and Aperture for Mac, and promises users an iOS-inspired interface, photo editing tools, and robust iCloud storage options (as part of Apple’s iCloud Photos feature). The new application isn’t launching with OS X Yosemite; instead, we’ll see Photos for OS X make an appearance in early 2015, according to Apple.

We’ll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
