The Apple Media Products Engineering team is one of the most exciting examples of Apple's long-held passion for combining art and technology.

These engineers build secure, end-to-end solutions. They develop the custom software used to process all the creative work, the tools that providers use to deliver that media, all the server-side systems, and the APIs for many Apple services. Thanks to Apple's unique integration of hardware, software, and services, engineers here partner to get behind a single unified vision. That vision always includes a deep commitment to strengthening Apple's privacy policy, one of Apple's core values. Although services are a bigger part of Apple's business than ever before, these teams remain small, nimble, and cross-functional, offering greater exposure to the array of opportunities here.

Description

We are more than a group of engineers -We are music lovers!

We are a team of data-driven engineers focused relentlessly on the customer experience by running worldwide experiments and analyzing usage and latency, while collaborating with Apple's product groups. As a result, someone can use the Shazam app to identify an intriguing song in a caf in the morning, add it to their playlist from Apple Watch, listen to it through their AirPods on their commute, and share it with their family on HomePod at dinnertime. And there's more where that came from, because personalization powered by machine learning and music science helps listeners discover more of what they love. Apple Music is a big part of Apple's business because it's a huge part of people's lives.

Are you able to work independently and collaborate as needed with supporting teams?

Apple's most important resource, our soul, is our people. Apple benefits help further the well-being of our employees and their families in meaningful ways.
