As you might already know, Apple aims to split off their App Store from their as-of-now still larger iTunes store, which they will still use to sell both video and audio files. Now, this sort of thing doesn’t just happen overnight, and certainly it doesn’t occur without testing on everyday folks like you or I. Therefor, they need testers. You can’t be just ANYONE, you’ve got to be able to work in a fast-paced environment and have strong customer service skills. Also I bet you’ll need to be able to stop playing Angry Birds long enough to look through the rest of the store once in a while. I am not eligible.
To take a look at the job inside the Apple webspace and apply, head over to Jobs at Apple and take a gander. Also, remember that you’ve got to be able to operate Mac OS X and proficiency in written French, German, or Japanese is a plus. I know German! Maybe they’ll turn a blind eye to my fine feathered addiction. Read the Job Description here:
