    Default RIM looking to hire iOS Developers


    A new job listing that appeared on Research In Motion’s website reveals that the BlackBerry maker is looking to hire developers for an undisclosed iOS enterprise app to be distributed through Apple’s App Store. A RIM spokesperson confirmed to All Things D that the company is indeed developing an iPhone app as part of its BlackBerry Mobile Fusion project. According to the spokesperson, “in order for Blackberry Mobile Fusion to perform advanced management functions for iOS devices, RIM will develop an on-device client to be included as part of the overall solution.”

    The listing, originally posted on Tuesday and removed by Thursday, described a long-term position that would be in charge of creating “exciting applications for distribution on the iOS platform” to be implemented into new products. Along with the usual coding and communication skills, the requirements also sought out an applicant well-versed in creating apps for both the iPhone and the iPad.

    The responsibilities of the job were vague and the position could be related to the company’s Mobile Fusion security software that was introduced in 2011. The software, which is intended to run on both Android and iOS devices, is aimed at corporate customers and extends to device management beyond the company’s own BlackBerry products.

    RIM has fallen from its previous position to popular offerings running on the Android and iOS platforms, both of which have eclipsed BlackBerry sales. In a recent report, it was revealed that Apple even managed to outsell RIM in its home turf of Canada. In May 2011, RIM announced that it would be updating its Blackberry Enterprise Server to support iOS devices, signaling a possible strategic shift toward data services instead of hardware. Service outages, poor product launches, and a series of software update delays brought down RIM’s market share, leaving the company to struggle to survive in a world dominated by primarily Apple and Samsung.

    A long term position at RIM? Isn't that an oxymoron?
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
