The Sensor Technology team develops cutting-edge sensor solutions and technologies that are central to Apple's products, including the iPhone, iPad, MacBooks, and more. The key goal of the Sensor Technology team is to enable the world's best user experience. New challenges arise every day that require the sharp problem-solving skills of talented individuals. The team features a collaborative and hands-on environment that fosters engineering excellence, creativity, and innovation.

Key Qualifications

  • Strong background at least two of analog circuit design, physics, digital signal processing, estimation, machine learning, or mathematical modeling
  • Multi-disciplinary understanding of EE, ME, and Physics principles
  • High proficiency in prototyping/analysis scripting languages like MATLAB/Python
  • Experience in modeling complex cross-disciplinary sensing systems
  • Experience with sensor interfacing, signal conditioning, and signal-to-noise analysis
  • Hands-on experience in system-level design of imaging or sensing systems
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent critical analysis, statistical analysis, and logic/problem solving skills

Description

You will be developing and validating advanced architectures to ensure sensor system performance. This will involve developing comprehensive sensor system models with block-level and end-to-end simulations of sensor modules. You will analyze sensor architectures, assess algorithm performance and HW requirements, and engage in sensor technology scoping, prototyping, corner performance bounding and development investigations. With experience, you will be expected to drive key initiatives. This will include problem solving across various functions and disciplines. Development and negotiation of cross-functional requirements to ensure module performance will be a key part of the role, and as such you will collaborate closely with Electrical Engineering, Firmware Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering teams, to create state-of-the-art sensor solutions.

Further responsibilities include:
Develop detailed sensor module and algorithm architecture specifications
Analyze engineering and production data sets in order to validate system models
Use system models to predict corner performance in representative user scenarios
Author regular technical communications for executive and cross-functional briefings
Failure mode analysis, root cause diagnosis, and system-level problem solving

Education & Experience

MS or PhD in Electrical Engineering or Physics
3+ years industry experience
