Engineering Efficiency - Release Management Team in MLPT is looking for exceptional engineers who are excited about build and integration, automation and improving engineering productivity. We are working to take the build, integration and test process of the AI/ML components of iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS to the next level (think Spotlight, Siri and others!). We don't have all of the answers on how to do that yet, perhaps you do? We are exploring, measuring and trying new things. We are responsible for integrating nearly a quarter of all changes that go into our OS releases and affect 1 billion+ customers, so this isn't just a theoretical exercise.
