Apple Maps provides cycling, driving, walking, and public transit solutions to millions of people every single day. Our Routing and Guidance Teams are responsible for building Apple's routing engine and deriving information such as ETA's which empowers users to get to their destinations as quickly and safely as possible. We do this by developing state of the art algorithms and features, constantly updating and improving the navigation and travel experiences for our users. If you want to develop graph algorithms with large data sets and you understand the importance of a rich, accurate, and timely user experience, this may be a role for you.

Key Qualifications

  • We are looking for the following skill-sets:
  • You have deep understanding of graph algorithms and data structure design
  • You have practical experience of making an algorithm perform efficiently upon implementation
  • Ability to write strong performance code, preferably C++
  • You value a scientific approach to problem solving, using experimentation and critical thinking to drive and validate high quality results
  • Good interpersonal and communication skills, possessing the ability to work both independently and in a team environment


Our team has direct ownership of Apple's routing recommendations along with the optimization and accuracy of these solutions. On our team, you will use advanced graph algorithms and pair them with large amounts of rich data to formulate a host of navigation solutions across multiple platforms, including iPhone, iPad, iMac, CarPlay, Watch, and other web app services. We have a modern development process, analyzing our initial algorithms, implementing and experimenting as we go, adjusting and optimizing our solutions to ultimately provide the best routing experience. Whether it is for cycling, driving, walking, or transit, our users rely on us to help get them to where they need to go.

As an algorithm engineer on our Maps Routing Team, your responsibilities will include:

Making route-finding algorithms more efficient

Crafting and implementing new algorithms

Working on high performance code using C++

Participating in design and code reviews

Owning the efficiency and accuracy of your designs, along with being on-point overseeing your work through the development and implementation life-cycles, ultimately delivering excellent end-results

Working with other specialists and teams cross-functionally to deliver high quality routes to our customers

Influencing the future product direction for our features

Education & Experience

Pursuing a MS or PhD in computer science, mathematics, or related fields with emphasis on algorithm design and implementation will be considered.

You are additionally required to return to school after the internship to continue or complete your education, or an internship needs to be required for graduation from your school. You also qualify if accepted into a graduate program after graduation.
