Apple Looking to Hire People Who Know Metal

In August, it was revealed that Apple signed an agreement with Liquidmetal Technologies for exclusive use its metal alloys in electronics.

With the use of metals in Apple's computers and music players, it's not unexpected to learn that the company is looking for something better than aluminum. Liquidmetal is unique as it has 2.5 times the strength of commonly used titanium alloy and 1.5 times the hardness of commonly used stainless steel.

While one would figure that Apple has more experience working with metal designs than other computer makers, the company is still publically reaching out for help.

In a trio of job postings available on Apple's site, we learn that the company is seeking to hire metal process managers, engineers and developers. Although it's not explicit that Apple is looking for help in making Liquidmetal devices, it makes the most immediate sense as the company seems competent at innovating on aluminum-based technologies, such as the unibody used on the MacBook Pro line. Or maybe Steve Jobs just wants someone who knows about ninja shuriken throwing stars.
