Apple hiring for new R&D facility in Taiwan11
The word about Apple planning a new R&D facility in Taiwan first surfaced last week, but these job listings are making the rumors sound much more real. Apple has posted a number of job listings looking for a senior software instrumentation engineer, a senior AC-DC design engineer, and a sensing system hardware engineer, as well as a couple of project manager positions.
Apple has a long history of partnerships with Taiwanese companies like Foxconn and Pegatron, and has been rumored to be working on partnerships with other Taiwan-based companies Wistron and Compal Communications in an effort to lower costs. The report also claims that in addition to the R&D facility, Apple may look into creating "a maintenance center for after-sales services" in Taiwan.
