Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number:200239151
Apple Maps is the most popular mapping application on iOS. We offer an incredible, connected experience across the Apple ecosystem – iOS, macOS, Apple Watch, tvOS, CarPlay – and are delivering the future of maps to hundreds of millions of customers. The Experiences Platform team delivers developer and end user experiences for Maps and Find My. We are passionate about creating exciting and awe-inspiring new features for the Maps platform, and then scaling these features to our vast developer community. We’re looking for an extraordinary Program Manager to join us. Program Managers at Maps deliver the right feature at the right time. It’s a hands-on, multi-functional, highly-engaged job. A good PM is the beating heart of their team. They are curious, scrappy, and thrive in an ambiguous environment. For this role, we’re looking for a Program Manager who can deliver developer and end user scenarios. Someone who feels comfortable building delightful end user experiences and empowering our Maps developers to do the same. Someone to handle our trickiest, hardest projects. To be responsible for a large portfolio of work. To wrangle huge amounts of detail. And to ensure that the right decisions are being made by the right people, all the time. In this role, you will keep your eyes on the vision and your hands in the details. You'll engage with the developer community and understand how to meet their unique needs. You'll get stuff built. You’ll plan. Prioritize. Coordinate. Drive. And ship.
