Module Lead - Imaging & Sensing Technology Group

Herzliya, Tel Aviv District, Israel


Role Number:200490066
The Imaging and Sensing group at Apple develops camera based sensing systems such as the user facing cameras, the revolutionary True Depth camera that powers FaceID and the eye tracking system on Apple Vision Pro. This multi-disciplinary group of engineers is responsible for architecture, design, and development of these highly complex sensing systems for Apple products. The primary responsibility for this role is design and delivery of cutting edge camera and depth sensing modules, from concept through production ramp. Heavy interaction with multidisciplinary design teams (electrical, mechanical, process, test, firmware, software and operations) requires the ability to understand a wide breadth of engineering and technical principles. Responsibilities include: - Multi-functional leadership of optical, electrical and mechanical design teams to develop and integrate depth/camera hardware into products - Concept definition, design, and detailed trade studies for laser projectors, camera optics, sensors, and module packaging - Documentation of module-specific design, test, and manufacturing requirements - Leadership of international manufacturing partners for module design evaluation, prototype builds, and qualification - Leadership of electro-optical module test definition and validation in Apple labs and at manufacturing sites - Detailed failure analysis of any issues affecting functionality and performance at module and product level - Frequent reporting to executive and multi-functional teams on development status of module development

Key Qualifications

  • This role requires ability to learn quickly and become familiar with several different technology areas
  • Ability to lead multi-functional team of Apple and vendor engineers to adress sophisticated and time-critical problems
  • Ability to travel internationally to support product development and production ramp
  • At least 2+ years experience in camera technology or related electronics industry and familiarity with at least 2 of the listed skills:
  • Design and tolerance analysis of opto-mechanical modules
  • Understanding of geometric optics and image quality evaluation including test charts, algorithms and lighting
  • Experience with test development for high-precision, high-volume optics modules
  • Electronic circuit and system design experience
  • Compact module manufacturing process such as sensor attachment, active alignment, SMT
  • Proficiency in data analysis and statistics using MATLAB or JMP, data reporting and visualization
