The Apple Media Products Engineering team is one of the most exciting examples of Apple's long-held passion for combining art and technology. These are the people who power the App Store, Apple TV, Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple Books. And they do it on a massive scale, meeting Apple's high expectations with high performance to deliver a huge variety of entertainment in over 35 languages to more than 150 countries.

These engineers build secure, end-to-end solutions. They develop the custom software used to process all the creative work, the tools that providers use to deliver that media, all the server-side systems, and the APIs for many Apple services.

Thanks to Apple's unique integration of hardware, software, and services, engineers here partner to get behind a single unified vision. That vision always includes a deep commitment to strengthening Apple's privacy policy, one of Apple's core values. Although services are a bigger part of Apple's business than ever before, these teams remain small, nimble, and cross-functional, offering greater exposure to the array of opportunities here.

  • Minimum of 5 years experience in a professional programming position
  • Deep knowledge and experience building applications with Java, C#, C++, or Python
  • Deep knowledge and experience modeling data in relational and NoSQL databases
  • Experience building on cloud-based infrastructure
  • Experience writing REST APIs
  • Familiarity with micro-services architecture and server side technologies
  • Familiarity querying search engines (i.e. SOLR, ElasticSearch)
  • Aptitude to independently learn new technologies
  • Collaborative, team-oriented attitude

  • Have a belief in automation and tooling as a critical part of the software lifecycle

Description

We are looking for a highly experienced, self-starting, and results-oriented Back-End engineer who is not afraid to question assumptions as they build large-scale, data-driven systems to enable the growth of Apple's Original Content during these critical early days and into the future. This is a unique opportunity to build at Apple's scale in the media services industry and within AMP (the fastest growing division within Apple). If you're passionate and creative while staying focused and curious we've got an exciting role for you. Apple's Original Content is brand-new, and it's up to us to make it explode. Sound like you? Join us!

We're a new team, and all of our work is green-field. We're looking for a Back-End engineer who dives deep into tech and is trusted by their peers to come up with the best solutions for any problem. We design as a team, we code review each others work, and we invest in automated testing and deployments. We look for phenomenal teammates who are able to solve problems and deliver visionary solutions.

The team builds tools and systems to scale and optimize Apple's Original Content post-production workflows. Our entire tech stack is on cloud-based infrastructure, from the UI to the data, and everything in between. The ideal Back-End engineer will understand how to model data to enable efficient video file-based workflows, and how to build the secure and scalable APIs and services to power all of our products.

Education & Experience

BS or MS in Computer Science or equivalent work experience.

Additional Requirements

  • This position is in a small team that is tightly focused on a specific set of critically important systems. Your ability and self-motivation to learn new technologies, and promote novel solutions to the problems at hand, is important to success. The team is remotely distributed across the continental US, so strong communication skills are necessary.
