Apple Job Listing Includes Stopping Jailbreaking, Unlocking Efforts

Apple has posted a job opening located at their corporate headquarters for the position of “iPhone OS Platform Security Manager.” The individual would be responsible for a team of securing the booting, installation, and running of firmware. We’re guessing that this lucky individual will be the one responsible for thwarting jailbreaking and unlocking efforts from our heroes in the iPhone Dev Team.

Apple has been openly critical of jailbreaking, noting that it compromises the device’s security. Critics have pointed out, however, that the company seems to be more concerned with the potential lost revenue from competition from unofficial apps, though app piracy is a genuine problem that requires a jailbroken device.
