Role Number:200003789

The Clang Compiler team at Apple is looking for an engineer to work on Clang-based tools. Clang is a core part of Apple's developer tools, used internally to build Apple's software stack and externally by millions of developers. We are looking for a compiler engineer to join our efforts. Our team works to deliver reliable tools for all developers working on our platforms.

We strive to build a diverse, balanced and dynamic environment! You will join a team of motivated engineers who build first-class compiler tools and apply them in innovative ways. The people here at Apple don't just build products - they build the kind of wonder that's revolutionized entire industries.

Together, our work will be the reason millions of customers feel that they can trust our devices every single day. We believe that every engineer brings unique skills and perspective. Far more than any specific experience or skill, we are looking for engineers who want to build great software, learn and develop their skills, and ultimately enable others to develop amazing applications.

Key Qualifications

  • Proficiency in C++ development
  • Passion for crafting software and tools
  • Strong communication and teamwork skills
  • Positive and respectful attitude in a diverse environment


In this position, you will work with teams across the whole company to implement and integrate compiler-driven tools that improve developer productivity. Most of your work will be done in open source, on (, where you'll collaborate with the open source community on contributions including, but not limited to, core language features, hardware support, and ensuring the reliability and security of all the software that Apple provides. Internally, you will work extensively with other teams, such as the Swift compiler, Operating System Tools, Debugging Technologies and Xcode teams. You'll have an opportunity to be creative, designing new tools and workflows that are adopted across our developer ecosystem.

You'll join a focused team based in Cupertino, California. But, you also will work closely with the larger developer tools organization colocated with us.

Here you'll find that we...
Have a wide range of experience, from engineers who've just joined to those who've thrived at Apple their whole careers.
Provide a peaceful environment where you can choose when to socialize and when to close your office door and focus.
Prioritize developing automation and infrastructure to ease our own testing and development.
Strongly value the security and privacy of our users.
Practice a blameless approach to regressions, and work together to define safety mechanisms and processes.
Can work with non-US applicants to provide visa support, provide relocation assistance and offer excellent benefits.

Education & Experience

B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent experience

Additional Requirements

  • Please attach a description of how you'd define Modern C++.
  • If possible, we'd love to see an example of your relevant work, such as a personal project or open source contribution
