Imagine what you could do here! At Apple, new ideas have a way of becoming extraordinary products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Bring passion and dedication to your job and there's no telling what you could accomplish. Dynamic, smart people and inspiring, innovative technologies are the norm here. The people who work here have reinvented entire industries with all Apple Hardware products. The same passion for innovation that goes into our products also applies to our practices strengthening our commitment to leave the world better than we found it. Join us to help deliver the next groundbreaking Apple product. Do you love working on challenges that no one has solved yet?

This role is all about making systems that have never been made before. Building and integrating complex components, working with cross-functional engineering teams, and making devices that live up to high expectations. This role requires an engineer who is not afraid to take on challenges, and knows how to balance innovation with practicality. You will work with members of the cross-functional engineering team to define and implement custom hardware that supports and drives our prototype platforms and instruments. You will be expected to reduce high level feature requests to practical and implementable hardware designs, while understanding and balancing implementation tradeoffs.

Key Qualifications

  • The ideal candidate will have 5+ years of experience in one or more of the following areas: FPGA logic design, system-level bring-up, characterization, debug, circuit design, schematic capture, PCB layout.
  • Experience designing logic with FPGAs (e.g. Verilog, SystemVerilog)
  • Experience working with systems that include analog sensors, ADCs, FPGAs, embedded microcontrollers
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Experience using standard lab equipment for system testing, characterization, and debug (e.g. oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzer, etc.)
  • Experience designing analog and digital circuits
  • Experience with various schematic capture tools, such as Eagle, Altium, and Cadence
  • Experience working with multiple cross-functional teams (e.g. software, mechanical, optical) to balance design tradeoffs
  • Experience with PCB layout on complex multi-layer boards is a plus
  • Skill writing test or automation software in high level languages is a plus (e.g. C, Python)
  • Candidate must work well in a team environment


As a FPGA Engineer, you will have the following


- Own and drive major aspects of bring-up, characterization, and debug at the board and system level
- Design and implement FPGA RTL to control prototype systems and capture synchronized sensor data
- Guide and mentor junior engineers to encourage technical growth and maintain Apple's high standards
