Apple uses hidden webpage to recruit cloud infrastructure engineer

A hidden, now-defunct page on Apple's website was apparently being used by the company to recruit an engineer for work on a "critical infrastructure component."

The page —located at —was highlighted by ZDNet editor Zach Whittaker, and described the component as involving "exabytes" of data, "tens of thousands" of servers, and "millions" of disks. It called for a candidate able to design and implement scalable apps and web services, familiar with Java 8, modern servers, and distributed systems.

While not necessarily difficult for a veteran engineer to find, the page's unusual placement likely ensured a base level of proficiency.

It's not clear when Apple disabled the page or if that means a candidate has been hired. The company was asking people to send resumes to "blob-recruiting [at]"

Also uncertain is which cloud service Apple was referring to. iCloud, iTunes, the App Store, and Apple Music could all potentially reach the exabyte scale, given the company's global footprint.
