Just when you think that Apple has decided to totally ignore iWork, along comes news that the company has added job postings for a number of positions on the iWork team.
The last official release of the iWork suite — Pages, Numbers, and Keynote — is telling: the name of the suite is still iWork ’09. About the only major changes to any of the apps over the past few years has been to make them available on the Mac App Store and to add compatibility with iCloud.
Apple Bitch covered the latest job listing for a software QA engineer to “work on the next generation of Desktop, Mobile and Web application/services,” focusing on bug detection, isolation, and reporting in the iWork suite. MacRumors notes that a number of other jobs are open on the team, including three positions for other QA engineers, a Production Specialist, a “Technical Production Ninja,” a Verification Engineer, a Visual Motion Designer, and a HiDPI Image Specialist to work on making the apps “the best they can be” on Retina displays.
