Imagine what you could do here. At Apple, new ideas have a way of becoming extraordinary products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Bring passion and dedication to your job and there's no telling what you could accomplish. The people here at Apple don’t just build products — they build the kind of wonder that’s revolutionized entire industries. It’s the diversity of those people and their ideas that encourages the innovation that runs through everything we do, from amazing technology to industry-leading environmental efforts. Join Apple and help us leave the world better than we found it. The iPhone HW Engineering team is seeking an enthusiastic electrical hardware engineer to work on the iPhone system technologies area - IO interfaces. The ideal candidate should have deep knowledge with high speed and low speed interfaces and their design/implementation on hardware systems, including IO specs/protocol, high level controller/PHY in silicon, system integration, silicon/system bring up, validation, performance tuning, and issue debug.

Key Qualifications

  • Strong EE fundamentals and problem solving skills
  • Knowledge and experience with high speed interfaces such as USB, PCIE, DisplayPort, MIPI, and lower speed interfaces such as SPI, I2C, UART, JTAG, etc
  • Experience with using test equipment such as oscilloscope, power supply, and logic analyzers is required
  • Experience with using frequency and time domain tools such as VNA and TDR is highly desired
  • Signal integrity analysis experience using spice to run channel simulation is a plus but not required
  • Excellent problem solving, teamwork, and communication skills, ability to work independently, and demonstrated ability to innovate are required


Directly work on high speed and low speed IO interfaces implementation on iPhone systems, and develop strategies and infrastructure for IO bring up, validation and system integration Work closely with x-functional teams, such as silicon design & validation, signal integrity, software/firmware, QA, operation and factory CM teams to drive design, development, debug and production. Perform system level analysis by conducting simulation, lab measurement and characterization to identify the optimal IO solution in power and routing space constrained HW systems
