Apple is looking for a Software Engineer to work on our software security technologies. You’ll work on projects that touch all aspects of Apple products, and will demonstrate your strong software and communication skills to develop and integrate on multiple platforms and architectures. To be successful, you’ll need proven talent in software development, familiarity with various architectures (x86/ARM, macOS/iOS, and others), and the ability to work with dynamic teams to produce reliable, robust code. Familiarity with security technologies (DRM, cryptography) is a plus. Experience reverse engineering protected software — e.g. for IP extraction, red teaming, or malware analysis — is highly relevant. This is a critical position where you will innovate and drive the state-of-the-art software protection technology. It’s challenging, fun, and exciting. It’s what makes us Apple.
