Apple’s career website featured a new job opening a couple of days ago. The company requires a Maps Web User Interface Designer, the person would be working on a “new secret project,” among other things. Since the original job posting went live and the wording was picked up by online news outlets, it has now been removed from the posting. However, the rumor mill has now begun speculating as to what this new secret project might be, which is apparently related to Maps.

One theory is that perhaps Apple wants to expand the reach of its Maps service beyond iOS and Mac devices. Apple Maps debuted with iOS 6 and they will be available on Mac computers after OS X 10.9 Mavericks is released in the coming weeks. Rumor has it that Apple might allow the Maps service to be accessed through a conventional web browser, regardless of the operating system or device. People applying for this position must possess three years of experience in building native and web apps. The company also requires that candidates have knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, DOM, XML and JSON. It is too soon to say right now, for sure, what this project is. Hopefully we’ll see it materialize in the future.
