US electronics giant Apple is stepping up its recruitment of workers in Israel: At least 19 job offers have been published on the company's official website in recent weeks, most of them for positions of hardware engineers, but some for software engineers as well.
Two offers have been made for part-time student jobs, requiring 20 hours of work a week.
Most jobs are located in Herzilya – the headquarters of the Anobit startup company acquired by Apple. A small number of the offered positions are in Haifa, where Apple is planning to open its Israeli research and development center.
Apple began posting job offers in February-March, and has since been issuing several ads every few weeks. The recent wave of job offers is the largest to date, which may point to the upcoming opening of the company's new R&D center in Israel.
Apple began building a center in Israel after acquiring Anobit in late 2011 for $490 million.
