At Apple, new ideas have a way of quickly becoming extraordinary products, services and customer experiences. Sound is an essential and compelling facet of the customer experience - Apple has assembled a world-class Acoustics team that enables our customers to experience music with delight, communicate with clarity and appreciate our products without disturbance from noise. In Apple Acoustics we work with obsessive attention to detail, directly contributing to products that ship to millions of people around the world!

The Noise & Vibration team contributes to hardware design, validation, and troubleshooting to minimize distracting audible noises and optimize their sound quality. We are a diverse team of acoustics and vibration experts, accomplished listeners, and creative problem solvers. We work daily with multifunctional teams on innovative solutions to complex engineering challenges. We are looking for a Technician to join our Noise & Vibration team.

Key Qualifications

  • You will excel as an N&V technician if you:
  • Have sound knowledge of basic acoustics through education or professional experience,
  • Experience taking measurements with lab-grade data acquisition systems and transducers - primarily microphones,
  • Experience with interacting and communicating with other technicians and engineers
  • Willing to learn new methods and techniques,
  • Are flexible and comfortable working in a fast paced, rapidly changing environment.

Description

A Technician on the Noise & Vibration team will:

Complete acoustic and vibration measurements using data acquisition systems, microphones, and other transducers following engineering-supplied testing instructions and lab procedures;

Prepare test systems for testing, including updating software versions;

Prepare test setups including fixtures and electronics including multimeters, scopes, and power supplies; rework small electronics, removing and swapping components using soldering, micro- fasteners, adhesives, etc.;

Move test materials between Apple facilities in Cupertino; and operate and configure MacOS and iOS devices.

Education & Experience

Most of our technicians have a high school or equivalent certificate with some additional college or technical training and 2+ years of noise emission testing of consumer electronics or IT equipment, but if you've followed a different path understanding data acquisition and testing for acoustics, we still want to hear from you.

Additional Requirements

  • have understanding of rework of basic electronics, and
  • Have understanding of acoustic analysis basics including spectrum and acoustic weighting.
