Nokia HERE apps are a staple of the Lumia line of Windows Phone devices, but until now other mobile platforms have had to get by without them. Now it seems that those times are about to change, as the new Microsoft subsidiary is looking to hire developers with experience in both Android and iOS.
A new job posting for Nokia states “As an Android / iOS developer you will be a key member of our growing mobile engineering team, developing industry-leading mobile SDKs / applications. This is an experienced position that requires fluency in the latest Java capabilities and improvements in the Android and iOS SDK. The ideal candidate is motivated to explore and deliver the best possible solutions to our customers”.
“The position will be based in Berlin / Frankfurt and will report to the Tem Lead Development team Mobile SKDs for Business, HERE Platform for Business”, the listing goes on to say.
This is obviously very early days, so we are a long way from seeing these apps ship Apple and Google customers, but with the new Nokia X, it’s clear that the company already has some experience and a head start on the Android platform.
