Embedded within Apple's Security Engineering & Architecture organization, the Secure Transports team's mission is to deliver world-class cryptographic and secure protocols engineering. At the heart of an organization dedicated to building the most secure operating system in the world and putting it in the hands of millions of customers, the team is looking for a motivated software engineer to help push its technologies to the next level.

You will join a team that provides the security foundations for data in motion across all of Apple's innovative products, including Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. Our team contributes to the entire system, from the kernel up through libraries, frameworks, and applications. As an engineer, you will have the opportunity to majorly impact the design and implementation of Apple's embedded and desktop operating system products, collaborating closely with all other security partners, ranging from our Silicon Engineering group to our Cloud Services group.

Not many jobs can offer all of these things. Software Engineering jobs at Apple do, and much more.

Our environment cultivates product innovation, rapid product iteration, and a liberating amount of autonomy in which you will be encouraged to create and quickly bring to market new security methods and technologies to address the complex needs of mobile and distributed computing. The position also has a strong multi-functional aspect that will require you to interact with and influence many people from several organizations within and outside the company.
