Role Number:200169539

Apple is looking for a Senior Audio Specialist to engineer the best possible system performance between audio software and acoustic hardware in Apple devices. Your responsibilities include designing validation s/w for audio technology developed in various product use cases, such as active noise cancellation (ANC), Uplink and Downlink signal processing. Your work will be hand-in-hand with cross-functional teams, innovating in small groups with high initiative. In this role you are tasked with making significant engineering contribution to enable industry-leading consumer electronic devices.

As part of Apple's Audio Design and Engineering group, the candidate will have responsibilities that include:

Background and strength in s/w development for algorithm prototyping and measurement utilizing simulation software such as MATLAB, Max DSP and Python's numerical computation packages for real time hardware measurements

Develop and design future validation s/w to apply latest technologies like machine learning, beam-forming to validate Apple devices

Understanding of system design and audio processing technologies such that s/w measurement tools are developed to test and verify audio performance meets Apple requirements

Working with software teams to communicate requirements and needs, and verify the operation of software deliverables

Working with factory teams to bring-up audio line testing s/w and h/w

Improving future audio system architecture and measurement tools for Apple products

Key Qualifications

  • Ideal you have proven senior-level experience of audio technology delivery in a consumer electronics/appliance company. Knowledge or experience in most of the following is required:
  • Algorithm prototyping in simulation software such as MATLAB / Python and real time hardware platforms
  • Acoustic prototyping including experimentation in anechoic chambers
  • Digital signal processing (DSP), including adaptive filtering, active noise cancellation and how to optimize the performance of these algorithms in devices.
  • Audio measurement tools, e.g. SoundCheck, Audio Precision, HEAD Acoustics ACQUA, Rohde & Schwartz CMU, Rohde & Schwartz UPV/UPL or similar
  • Acoustic measurement instruments for telephony (HATS, handset positioners, artificial ear couplers, reference acoustic sources & microphones)
  • Audio signal analysis in Audition or similar software
  • Listening skill and passion in diagnosing problems and overall improve sound quality
  • Five years professional experience in senior role
