Apple is looking for a full time Engineer to join it’s team working on the Apple cloud hosting product. This position would be to join a “small team” that is working on something no less audacious than “the future of cloud services at Apple!” In a job posting, the company said that this team will be, ” writing the software [that] forms the foundation for some of our most exciting new products and services.”

The most recent cloud-based rumors to circulate about Apple include the company working on a video streaming service, a music streaming service, and some form of enhanced online locker for music and/or video files.

Apple is also known to keep its development teams small, at least compared to some of its competitors, and today’s job posting (which was discovered by AppleInsider) suggests that this new development team will be making the tools used by other projects at Apple.

The job listing didn’t reveal anything about Apple’s specific plans for future web applications or services. The ideal candidate will likely be deeply involved with building internal systems for sharing data across Apple’s family of cloud products. By asking for applicants that can collaborate with cross-functional engineering teams and have experience constructing highly scalable software powered by a variety of data management systems, it looks like the Cupertino-based company wishes to add muscle to the core APIs that power its online products and services.

Apple currently offers a suite of web products and services called MobileMe for US$99.00 per year. Many, including The Wall Street Journal, speculate the company plans to dramatically enhance these services later this year. There’s also the beta, which has been in beta since 2009.
