Software Engineering Program Manager (Media Frameworks) - Apple Vision Pro

Sunnyvale, California, United States
Software and Services


Role Number:200525606
Apple is where individual imaginations gather together, committing to the values that lead to great work. Every new product we build, service we create, or Apple Store experience we deliver is the result of us making each other’s ideas stronger. That happens because every one of us shares a belief that we can make something wonderful and share it with the world, changing lives for the better. It’s the diversity of our people and their thinking that inspires the innovation that runs through everything we do. When we bring everybody in, we can do the best work of our lives. Here, you’ll do more than join something — you’ll add something. Apple Vision Pro is a revolutionary spatial computer that seamlessly blends digital content with your physical space. It will allow us to do the things we love in ways never before possible — all while staying connected to the people around us. We are looking for a self-motivated teammate with a track record of shipping complex new technologies and experiences in system software; someone who thrives in a dynamic, constantly changing environment. You will lead teams through the software development cycle from concept to delivery, collaborating with several teams at Apple, driving the definition, schedule, execution and communication of new features. If you are up to the challenge of leading an amazing team in building ground breaking technologies through a fast paced development cycle with frequent changes, we want to hear from you!

Key Qualifications

  • Familiarity with multimedia processing (video capture/playback)
  • 6-10 years of experience managing complex, cross-functional software projects
  • Ability to dive into and stay in the technical details
  • Exceptional verbal/written communication skills, ability to distill information for the right audience
  • Self-motivated, collaborative, curious, pro-active with demonstrated critical thinking capability
  • Great attention to detail.


In this role, you will drive large cross-functional efforts to build features ground-up. This requires partnering with engineering management to oversee all aspects of projects: you will define, schedule, prioritize, track, measure and communicate status up to exec levels. Identifying and mitigating risks, removing road blocks and facilitating communication between teams are essential aspects to the role as you lead efforts across teams representing multiple layers of the software stack as well as other cross-functional partners. We value your ability to lead and develop new processes and ideas when it makes sense to re-evaluate, which at Apple is always.
