iOS-6-Maps-App-LogoA job listing on Apple’s website has revealed that Apple might be looking to extend the reach of Apple Maps beyond their iDevices.

A recruitment advert posted by Apple last month seeking a “Maps JavaScript Engineer” who is a Web technology expert “to help make maps work seamlessly on the web.”

Its been a long time since Apple has been looking to expand into the web domain to give competition to Google Maps. A JavaScript expert will certainly help migrate Apple’s dreams to reality sooner.

Apple Maps are currently only available on iOS 6 and later, as well as OS X 10.9 Mavericks and newer. Its unsurprising that Apple would call for a web based maps solution since they already have iCloud and iWork which are hugely popular platform independent web services.

Apart from this, Apple also seeks a HTML and CSS master who is highly deliverable with a “proven track record of shipping excellent client-side web applications.”
