An article yesterday on Industry Gamers (via Joystiq) shows that Apple has placed a Job Posting looking for a Game/Media Software Engineer to work full time on iPhone multimedia “experiences”. On the surface, it appears that Apple could be looking for someone to continue to design and build more in-house Apps for the iPhone OS. However, when perusing the skills that skills that Apple is looking for, the list includes:

• -3-4 years of video game development experience, shipped at least one AAA title,
• -skills in audio systems, graphics pipeline, and network programming a plus are
• -passionate gamer
So it looks like Apple doesn’t just want that small 30% take on each App sold, they want 100% of the profits.
