Apple Pay looks set to expand from US shores in the near future upon the news the firm is looking for an intern to aid in its launch “across Europe, Middle East, India and Africa”.
A listing for an ‘Apple Pay Intern’ first spotted by iClarified, announced that the individual will work with a new London-based team to introduce the iPhone near field communication (NFC) payment system to the EMEIA region.
The intern will be responsible for liaising with third-party and driving business development activities for Apple Pay , which was launched in October, mustering over one million users in less than three days.
The job summary reads: “Apple Pay is a new and exciting area in Apple that is set to expand across Europe, Middle East, India and Africa. Apple Pay will change the way consumers pay with breakthrough contactless payment technology and unique security features built right into their iPhone 6 or Apple Watch to pay in an easy, secure, and private way.
“The new London-based Apple Pay team will work to drive the roll-out of this technology across EMEIA by working with a variety of internal and external partners, including teams in the US where the product will first launch and the EMEIA organisation, as well as issuers, payment networks and merchants across Europe.”
The technology giant has also laid the foundations of a launch in China, last month entering a deal with UnionPay to help users buy apps directly from the app store.
