Apple is on the hunt for talent for its Israel research and development facility.
The company is about to embark upon a major hiring campaign for its R&D facility in Haifa, according to Ynet News.
The report said Apple has been actively recruiting for new employees since March, but plans to ramp up the hiring over the next few weeks. In fact, the report noted that Apple was looking for a headhunter as early as February who would help hiring dozens of candidates simultaneously. Job listings are expected to pop up on Apple's Web site shortly, according to Ynet.
The new hires would join employees at flash memory maker Anobit,in a deal reportedly worth between $400 million and $500 million.
Apple's R&D center is part of Haifa's scientific industries center, a district that also includes operations from Google, Intel, and Microsoft.
