You will be responsible for providing day-to-day directions and managing activities of these teams to deliver against the Apple Cloud Security goals. As part of the Apple Cloud Security team, you will help enable the security needs of Apple’s services around the world leading the Identity and Access Management team within ACS.

Key Qualifications

  • 5+ years of management experience
  • Breadth of technical experience across various infrastructure and security areas with experience in large production environments

In the first phase of your role, you will learn a lot about a security capability that we have decided to build, but for which many of the architectural and technical details remain to be finalized. While you have experience as a manager, you will start without a team, to learn the context, the need, the options available, and develop a point of view on the right approach to pursue, in partnership with peers in the Apple Cloud Security team and others in other related teams. Progressively, your role will shift from planner and designer to recruiter, builder, manager and leader. Your team will grow and likely encompass endpoint software developers and service developers and more, with full lifecycle ownership over the bits the team produces, and long-running partnerships with upstream and downstream services at Apple.
