Apple Poaching Engineers from Here in Berlin To Work on Apple Maps

Over the last few months, Apple has been quietly hiring engineers away from Here, a Berlin-based car mapping corporate, for mapping jobs in Berlin. Apparently, Apple’s by no means publicly showed that it has an workplace in Berlin.

In a couple of months time, Apple has employed over part a dozen Here engineers to paintings in its place of work in Berlin. Here is now co-owned through automotive makers BMW, Daimler, and Audi. The brand new workers that Apple has poached from Here are as follows:
Khang Tran – a senior tool engineer at Here. He joined Apple as a device engineer this month.
Gilbert Schulz – a program supervisor at Here. He joined Apple in April and lately works on the Apple Maps staff.
Konstantin Sinitsyn – a senior tool engineer at Here. He joined Apple ultimate November as a tool engineer.
Manfred Reich – regional map and content material lead, Japanese Europe area at Here. He joined Apple in July 2015 after spending seven years at Here Maps and recently works on the Apple Maps group.
Andrey Arsentyev – a product supervisor at Here Maps. He joined Apple in Would possibly 2015 and recently works on the Apple Maps workforce.
Torsten Krenz – a director at Here the place he labored for greater than two and a part years. He joined Apple in August 2014 and lately works on the Maps workforce.
Apple has no legitimate presence in Berlin, however a record from previous this yr had claimed that the corporate has a secret workplace in the town the place its engineers are running on the Apple Automotive. Then again, with the corporate reporting leaving behind plans on creating the Apple Automotive, it's believable that Apple is now assembling a brand new group to paintings on making improvements to its mapping carrier. Previous this month, it used to be reported that Apple plans on the use of drones to strengthen Apple Maps, and it's also running on a brand new indoor navigation function for it.

Previous in the month, Bloomberg reported that the Cupertino large would use high-tech drones to lend a hand beef up the accuracy and reliability of Apple Maps.
