Apple has almost 300 openings for positions based in China listed on LinkedIn at the moment, suggesting that the firm is looking to ramp up its efforts in the country pretty significantly.

Spotted by 9to5Mac (via the Wall Street Journal) the 291 job advertisements posted in the last 30 days span a wide array of roles at the company, including global supply managers, field marketing managers and store leaders. One opening for editorial and programming in the App Store is particularly notable:

“This position will be measured according to his/her ability to establish a credible editorial voice for the App Store in China, and present content offerings that generate incremental sales.”

Apple’s rumored iPhone launch event on September 10 could have huge implications in China. The iPhone 5C could be a game-changer in the region, and the next flagship iPhone from Apple is also rumored to support all of China’s major carriers for the first time.
