'Jobs at Apple' page refreshed with animated logos, new video

in General Discussion
Apple has updated the appearance of its "Jobs at Apple" page, adding an array of animated Apple logos, as well as a new inspirational video encouraging viewers of the site to consider working for the iPhone maker.

Implemented on Friday, the new frontpage for the Jobs at Apple site has switched from a light appearance, one that also featured a carousel of employee portraits, to one that is predominantly darker. In the latest version, colorful animated interpretations of the Apple logo, surrounding the text "Join Us. Be You," and a link to a promotional film.

The video is a continuation of the page's theme, again showing a series of animations made around the Apple logo. Throughout, narration talks of a message "to the constant beginners who sing off-key against the beat" and those "open to daydreams and night dreams and visions and mirages."

The message offered, "You are more powerful than you think, and you are welcome here," urges interested parties to apply for work at the company.

The large number of different animated Apple logos used throughout the page is reminiscent of an initiative by Apple to promote its October 2018 Special Event. At the time, invitations were sent to media with randomly selected Apple logos, while the event page featured a similar assortment of logos that would change on each refresh of the page.

Further down the page is an "open invitation to open minds," calling for the viewer to "come to Apple, where thousands of individual imaginations gather together to pave the way to innovation. Here, you'll do more than join something - you'll add something."

Towards the bottom of the page are links to sections for About Apple, teams, machine learning and AI, and Apple retail support roles. Each of the images, and the sections they lead to, remain unchanged from the previous page design.

    I was offered a position at a Silicon Valley company about 5 years ago and turned it down. Since then, several people who formerly worked in the Valley have applauded my decision. Companies like Apple, Google, etc. promise that you will make a difference and work on amazing products. But the reality it that people start at the lowest levels and at Apple do not even have a voice in the development process until you have a certain amount of time at the company. Long hours, horrific commutes, never seeing your family are norms and I have no interest in any of that. Apple keeps complaining about not being able to find enough qualified engineers. Hey Apple, the engineers are out there, but your nearly impossible screening process and the fact that quality of life in Silicon Valley is nearly non-existent makes your company very unattractive to iOS engineers like myself. I don’t even respond to requests from Apple recruiters anymore because I have been through the process a few times and never made it past the 2nd interview. I am most definitely not Apple material in a lot of ways, including skills apparently. It doesn’t bother me though, it’s Apple’s prerogative to have such stringent standards. But they should not complain about not having enough engineers at the same time.
