  • Mentor and lead engineers and interns.
  • Organize and grow your team through recruiting and interviewing.

Description

To be a successful manager on this team, you must have two foundational attributes:

Your electrical engineering fundamentals must be very solid. Your team will be a collection of top notch engineers, and they'll expect you to be able to keep up with them. You have deep experience shipping consumer electronics, and you love being in the details and getting your hands dirty whenever possible.

Your personality must be equal parts motivated and thoughtful. You're comfortable with ambiguity, and skilled in working through it in order to bring clarity to your team and peers. You motivate by building relationships and inspiring others to want to support you and your team.

Play a significant role in the development of Apple products, working with virtually every subject area involved in the process:
- Product Design / Mechanical Engineering
- Firmware
- iOS
- Acoustics
- Industrial Design
- EMC, Reliability, Operations, etc.

The position is based in Cupertino at Apple's headquarters. Some international travel is required, as our teams go on-site for manufacturing support to ensure success. It's one of the most exciting aspects of the job.
