Paris, Paris Region, France
Software and Services


Role Number:200315576
Apple Media Products uses groundbreaking techniques to improve the security of hundreds of millions of devices and services, from the iPhone to Apple TV+. We value the privacy of users, the integrity of creative content and go further to protect them. We're looking for someone passionate about security, to take up the challenge of fighting content piracy and improving the security of our products and services.

Key Qualifications

  • Experience with identifying risk or fraud patterns, implementing detection rules, and developing mitigations
  • Experience with working with large datasets
  • Knowledge of machine learning algorithms (including classifiers, clustering, or anomaly detection)
  • Familiarity with Splunk or other monitoring/reporting tools
  • Knowledge of scripting and programming languages
  • Knowledge of media content protection mechanisms


Working as part of an extraordinary team of security experts, we have the freedom to bring new ideas and design innovative solutions. Apple Media Products implements and deploys media services at scale, such as Apple TV+, or Apple Music. Expanding these services to new platforms and users means using a variety of media content protection mechanisms, existing or custom made. To help prevent content piracy, you will analyze data captured by these services and the protection mechanisms they use, and identify patterns for known and new risks. You will be responsible for creating the tools needed to achieve your goals, based on fundamental detection rules, or more complex machine learning algorithms. You will collaborate closely with a team of reverse engineers, content protection experts, cryptographers, or developers, to discuss and drive the implementation of mitigations and security hardening you proposed. Based in Paris, we are passionate about security, and work with a variety of cross-functional teams across Apple, worldwide. Speaking French is not required for this role. If this is you, we'd love to hear from you.
