The Xcode team is seeking a creative, motivated engineering manager to drive a team in designing and building innovative features that help developers create applications for all of Apple's platforms. You will be responsible for leading a small team of engineers through prototyping, planning and implementation of IDE integration features (how Xcode connects with and augments external services). As a first-line engineering manager, you will directly contribute to the Xcode codebase, necessitating strong software engineering fundamentals and a comprehensive understanding of object-orientated design. Ideally you are passionate about clean, intuitive user interfaces that tackle challenging workflows head-on, have a proven track record in successful software development, and an ability to inspire and lead others to success (either in a management or technical lead capacity). Equally, you are inspired to form and champion critical ideas about how our software is architected, demonstrate how to write clean and maintainable code, and lead from the front with a strong testing philosophy.
