Apple looks to expand Mergers and Acquisitions team

updated 11:53 am EDT, Mon March 10, 2014

Company so far focusing on small buyouts

A new Apple job listing is calling for an "acquisition integration analyst." The successful candidate will help to "deliver the successful integration of acquired companies," Apple writes, and "drive multiple integration work streams, identify issues and drive decisions while coordinating with experts throughout Apple," acting as a "central point of contact for integration information." The person will presumably report to the company's Mergers & Acquisitions head, Adrian Perica.

Apple tends to focus on buying smaller companies, rather than competitors or other firms that might cost it billions of dollars. In 2014 it has already bought out TestFlight creator Burstly, and photo app developer SnappyLabs. Such acquisitions are usually focused around adding features to planned products, though in some cases the company may simply be interested in bringing more talent on board.
