You know how to recruit, hire and nurture people who are not only great technically but also demonstrate success in the highly collaborative, functional environment of innovation at Apple.

You anticipate. You connect and synthesize. You care about craft. You appreciate that tools impose structure on how we think. And you can identify when love of craft is getting in the way of impact. You can move up and down the ladder of abstraction and help your team move up and down as well. You can talk and design on technical matters but are always able to connect that work to the impact it is in service of.
