Apple is Seeking Engineers in Taiwan
Apple has started hiring for engineering positions in Taiwan to establish an R&D team for product development, according to DigiTimes. The company is also said to be considering a maintenance center for after-sales services.
Apple has posted for positions including a senior packaging engineer, reliability engineering manager, senior software instrumentation engineer, senior AC-DC design engineer and sensing system hardware engineer.
As Taiwan offers excellent R&D engineers and low labor costs, and Apple's cooperation with Taiwan's ODMs and component makers are expected to increase, the market watchers believe these may be some of the factors behind Apple's decision to establish an R&D team in Taiwan. In addition to Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) and Pegatron Technology, Apple is also reportedly considering forming partnerships with other Taiwan-based makers such as Wistron and Compal Communications to diversify risks and lower costs.
