Company also searching for other regional positions
Apple is looking to hire a Russian chat team manager for its still-unlaunched Russian online store, reports observe. Although the person will be based in Cork, Ireland, he or she will "lead a team of 12/15 dynamic advisors," according to the job listing, pushing them to "meet or exceed business goals ensuring that all Apple customers are receiving an excellent service." As a part of the job, the manager will have to conduct his/her own hiring.
Apple is also hunting for a "Russian service provider support advisor" in Ireland. In terms of jobs in Russia itself, the company is pursuing a marketing manager for Russia, the CIS, and Turkey, a regional label relations executive, and several other positions.
The chat manager position, though, is the only one that appears to confirm recent indications that Apple is bringing its online store to Russia. At the moment, anyone wanting an Apple product in the country has to deal with third-party retailers, since the company is also missing any physical shops in the area.
