The job listing, which was first reported by Musically, comes at a time when Apple has been rumored to be working on a music streaming subscription service. According to a report from 9to5Mac, the new service would be powered by Beats Music.

The job posting says the ideal candidate must be able to write "lively copy with personality and verve" as well as have deep contacts in the freelance world with writers who can cover the spectrum of pop culture (music. movies, books, etc.)."

"This full-time position is split between editorial and producing duties. The editorial duties focus on writing, editing, managing a sea of freelancers, and working collaboratively with business and content heads to shape and define editorially driven merchandising promotions. As far as producing, this role will also focus on special projects and promotions, making sure all parties understand the timelines and deliverables associated with getting these pages live, and making sure we execute flawlessly and on time."
