Role Number:200223152

Join the innovative engineering team that uses sensor signal processing to produce the next generation of human interfaces for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and exciting new products. Our team comes from diverse backgrounds, including signal and image processing, statistics, machine learning, controls, physics, firmware and software development, neuroscience, and human factors. We are looking for a hardworking algorithm engineer who works well in cross-disciplinary teams over a full product cycle.

HID operates at the intersection of hardware, software, and design. This means that the wide variety of problems you will solve have many interesting facets and you will get to work with specialists from all across Apple.

Key Qualifications

  • TECHNICAL EXPERIENCE - You should have significant experience with the following:
  • Algorithm design and development for classification, filtering, noise modeling, signal processing, or control
  • Processing and analyzing complex data, e.g. for machine learning, signal processing, or statistics
  • Building mathematical models in Python, MATLAB, R, or a similar high-level language
  • Strong theoretical knowledge of fundamental DSP concepts such as Adaptive filtering, linear algebra, and statistics
  • Excellent communication, presentation, and documentation skills
  • Working with embedded or resource-constrained systems, and with C or C++
  • Control systems, optimization, or other applied mathematical techniques
  • Familiarity with Python or other high-level languages
  • Experience with object-oriented programming and common design patterns
  • Experience with content management systems, especially Git
  • Electrical engineering and hardware design experience


We are looking for a signal or image processing specialist with working knowledge of probabilistic modeling, statistics, and state machines. You must possess strong programming skills in functional and mathematical modeling languages. As a HID algorithm engineer you will combine skills from a variety of fields to solve complex data processing and sensing challenges. The process starts early in a product's lifecycle as we explore what might be possible and identify challenges and their potential solutions, then continues as we rapidly iterate on cleaning and analyzing data, building and testing algorithms, and finishes with detailed implementation, analysis, and validation. You should have excellent mathematical skills and experience working with algorithms and data, be proficient at programming, and have a desire to work closely with others in a multi-functional team. In return, you will get to work on challenging and fascinating problems with hardworking co-workers, and ship great solutions at scale.
