Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States
Software and Services


Posted: Nov 13, 2018
Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number: 114322511
Apple’s Interative Media Group (IMG) is looking for a Site Reliability Engineer with excellent communication and interpersonal skills to lead administration of our automated test labs, as well as a small number of internal web-services. Day-to-day responsibilities will include supporting the configuration, maintenance, and monitoring of servers, as well as test-machines used to power automated testing. We're looking for candidates that will automate these processes rather than do them twice. This is an unusual opportunity to join a growing team and deeply influence the quality of Apple's products.

Key Qualifications

  • Proficient in scripting languages such as Python and Bash
  • Expertise configuring and troubleshooting desktop and/or mobile systems
  • Experience with web and application servers like Apache and Tomcat
  • Admin experience with relational databases (PostgreSQL ideally)
  • Experience in the management of monitoring tools such as Splunk and Grafana
  • Experience with configuration managers such as Ansible, Chef or Puppet
  • Deep understanding of standard networking protocols and components such as HTTP, DNS, TCP/IP, the OSI Model, networking and load balancing
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to manage multiple tasks and prioritize work accordingly


You will be part of a small, talented and motivated team that operates like a startup within Apple. In this role you will configure, maintain and monitor a fleet of servers and test machines that serve as a critical part of IMG’s internal infrastructure. The ideal candidate will be innovative, organized, a self-starter with excellent interpersonal skills, and have a keen attention to detail. If you would describe yourself as scrappy, you’re likely to be a good fit.
