The people here at Apple don't just build products - they build the kind of wonder that's revolutionized entire industries. It's the diversity of those people and their ideas that encourages the innovation that runs through everything we do, from amazing technology to industry-leading environmental efforts. Join Apple, and help us leave the world better than we found it.

Apple's Sales organization generates the revenue needed to fuel our ongoing development of products and services. This in turn, enriches the lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world. We are, in many ways, the face of Apple to our largest customers! Be inspired every day. We're diligent people. Futurists. Inventors. Forever tinkering with products and processes, always on the lookout for a better way. A job at Apple is one that requires a lot of you, but it's also one that rewards forward-thinking and hard work. None of us here at Apple would have it any other way.

Our BPR (Business Process Re-engineering) team delivers scalable, sophisticated solutions that help our users execute their work efficiently and deliver outstanding results across the Channel Sales organization (and beyond). What fuels us is developing scalable, customer-centric processes and technology solutions for our customers in the U.S. Channel Sales and Programs teams. We view inclusion and diversity as critical for innovation. That's because we lead results-oriented projects, the ones that benefit from different perspectives to drive innovation. We convert ambiguity and uncertainty into order, and we know how to execute big projects successfully.

We are looking for an outstanding and multi-skilled Project Manager, with a demonstrable record of leading diverse and sophisticated projects from concept through implementation. As a BPR Project Manager, you will be the prime mover of your projects end to end. You'll connect the dots, build trust and understanding between groups, and orchestrate the multitude of activities needed to make your projects successful. This role will draw upon your experience leading medium-to-large, global technical projects that interweave multiple systems and functional teams.

The ideal candidate is proactive and loves a fast-paced and at times ambiguous environment, where their work is helping clarify and set direction for the processes and technologies that they'll touch. We're looking for an excellent project leader, a deep problem solver, a relationship builder, a superb communicator, an innovator. If this sounds like you, we'd love to talk with you.

  • Establishes relationships with multi-functional partners and is always viewed as a trusted advisor and partner.
  • Interacts proficiently with a wide range of technical and business teams, and naturally adjusts their communications and messaging for their intended audience. Experience creating polished executive presentations that tell a compelling story about why projects matter.
