Interviews are being done with staff from Apple’s Singapore office. It’s believed that staff from Singapore will be in Taipei on November 5 to do sets of interviews.

Apple is currently recruiting the following positions in Taiwan: Hardware Development Engineers (areas of expertise: audio, camera, sensors, power, analog, touch, RF, antenna, battery), Panel Process & Optics Engineers, Product Development Engineers, Product Development Engineer, Mechanical Engineers – Product Displays, Materials Technical Program Managers, Test Engineers, Software QA, Reliability Engineers, Product Safety Engineer – PD, Firmware Engineers, Engineering Program Managers.

In August Apple said that the new team in Taipei will be working on the next iPhone.

Having a R&D center in Taiwan will be a competitive advantage for Apple, since salaries are much lower compared to the United States.
