IT Home has learned that Apple recently posted job openings in Malaysia on its website. These include retail store managers, retail store leaders, operations specialists, business specialists, technical specialists, support staff, creatives and salespeople. The listings indicate that the positions are for Apple’s own retail stores, not third-party resellers. Apple also operates an online store in Malaysia.
While the job listing doesn’t in any way indicate the location of the first Apple retail store in Malaysia, the report suggests it could be built in the country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur.
The development will strengthen Apple’s presence in the Asian region. Back in November 2015, Apple opened a retail store in Singapore, its first retail store in Southeast Asia. Three years later, Apple opened another store in neighboring Thailand. What’s more, Apple also recently posted job openings for its first location in India, a retail store that has been in the works for a few years.
While Apple doesn’t report sales in individual countries, the company generated more than $29 billion in revenue from its Asia-Pacific region in the last fiscal year, according to Bloomberg.
