Apple Maps empowers people to explore and navigate their world. We solve large-scale problems while delivering beautiful, intuitive, and innovative experiences. We obsess over the details to bring the world’s complexity to life. As the most popular mapping application on iOS, we are delivering the future of maps to hundreds of millions of customers across Apple’s entire ecosystem. We sit at the intersection of technology and the liberal arts, combining state-of-the-art software and hardware with human curation to create a product that celebrates the best of what Apple (and the world) has to offer. If this challenge excites you, we want to hear from you! The Places Program team builds features that help users find and learn about the contents of our map. Looking for a coffee shop nearby? Need to find a gas station along your route? Wondering if a hotel is pet friendly? We are focused on building the most engaging and rewarding user experience possible, centered around discovery and exploration of places on the map. We are seeking an extraordinarily talented Program Manager to help us achieve that goal.
