Sydney, Feb 25: Tech giant Apple is looking for a Sydney-based software engineer to fix its beleaguered Maps software, after Australian authorities issued safety warnings about its use.
Apple posted a job ad on its website that says the firm needs a full time ‘maps ground truth data specialist’ to ‘provide feedback on unique local map requirements’.
‘The Maps team is looking for people with knowledge of mapping, great testing skills, and local expertise to help us build better and better maps,’ the ad read.
According to News.com.au, the ad says that the engineer would be responsible for the quality of map data for his/her region.
The person ‘will test changes to map data, provide feedback on unique local map requirements, collect ground truth information, and evaluate competing products’, it added.
The move comes months after Victoria Police advised people not to use the software after a number of tourists were led off course and left stranded in sweltering conditions. (ANI)
