Apple Watch Three Second face

Apple is seeking software engineer to join its ‘Clock Face Team’ to work on yet-to-be-released faces and complications for the Apple Watch.

As originally discovered by AppleInsider yesterday, an Apple job ad describes the position as helping build the watch faces and complications.

“You’ll work closely with the UI design, iOS Frameworks and QA teams to develop interactions of superior quality that will ship to millions of users,” reads the job ad.

Ideal candidates will collaborate closely with the design team “to push the envelope on human-computer interactions,” create solutions “tailored to the constraints of the software and the hardware of a small, low power device” and work closely with other Apple teams to “create robust and maintainable systems that will stand the test of time.”

The current watchOS 2 software includes twelve customizable watch faces, some of which support configurable data displays, referred to in watchmaking as complications.

Last fall’s release of watchOS 2 brought the addition of three new watch faces: Time-Lapse, Photo and Photo Album. In addition, buyers of Hermes models of Apple Watch are treated to exclusive Hermes-branded clock faces.

  • sometimes Apple is acting wired:

    just my 2 cents…

      Yeah, and what happens when a position need to be filled in case of someone leaving?

      well then the “surprise factor” of the watch will be gone. If they publically announce a job for creating watch faces, it really just gives it away. They used their current engineers to make the initial watch and once it was public, like now, they are recruiting potentially more talented people to work on Watch 2.

        Hopefully the one who takes the position an make something and put the surprise factor back in.
