People residing in Canada will be glad to hear today that iTunes Radio may finally be making its appearance in the coming months. According to a job posting on Apple’s website the Fruit Company is looking for a ‘iTunes Canada Music Programmer,’ who’s responsibility will be getting iTunes Radio ready for launch in Canada.
Despite the fact that Apple limited iTunes Radio to the US when it released iOS 7, it said that it would be rolling out the music service to more countries as soon as possible. And it looks like Canada will be one of the first international countries to get it.
9To5Mac was able to grab the job description which read:
The Canadian Music Programmer will be responsible for the programming of iTunes Radio and the iTunes Music store in Canada. This particular role will report directly to the Head of Music for the Canadian iTunes store, and will be responsible for working cross-functionally across a variety of teams including Editorial, Label Relations, Marketing, Sales, Production & Engineering, and more.
