Bose is a well-known player in music hardware, but just as Beats did, it looks like the company is trying to get into the content business, as well. As noticed by Hypebot, Bose currently has a job opening for a senior user experience designer, working under its “cloud music services” group. Rather than working to integrate Bose technology with existing services, the job listing says this candidate will “lead design and prototyping of our next generation streaming music platform and ecosystem of products.
The audio hardware manufacturer Bose is about to become a media company, reports say, with the impending launch of its own music streaming service. Hypebot is reporting that Bose is moving “quickly” to build and launch its own “next generation streaming music platform”. This puts Apple into an interesting position with regard to Bose. Apple features Bose products in its online and brick-and-mortar stores, but will soon compete with the company in the music media space. Bose’s music streaming ambitions may have been behind Apple’s recent pulling of Bose products from its stores, then reinstating them. Bose is currently advertising for a Senior User Experience Designer of Cloud Music Services, too. The ad reads “seeking an expert Experience Designer to lead design and prototyping of our next generation streaming music platform and ecosystem of products.”
