Technical Program Manager - Product Display and Health Technology
Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States
Imagine what you could do here. At Apple, great ideas have a way of becoming great products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Bring passion and dedication to your job and there's no telling what you could accomplish.
- 2-5 years experience either in a manufacturing environment (process design/development/optimization) or as a product designer
- Excellent communication, multi-tasking, and people skills
- Hands-on, enjoy tinkering around with things (designing them, building them, taking them apart etc.)
- Good problem solver with demonstrated experience (individual/team projects)
- Willingness and ability to travel internationally up to 35%
It takes deeply dedicated, intelligent and hard-working individuals to maintain and exceed the high expectations for Apple's exciting brand. You will lead a team of engineers (DFx, DFm, test, SQE, PQE, etc.) and others in support of new product development as well as sustaining operations and ensuring the contract manufacturer readiness for very high volume production. You will bring your knack and thirst to drive all technical operational issues related to SMT and system integration processes to ensure effective closure of all issues to enable operational success of the entire new product introduction cycle and into the mass production phase. Broadly, this translates into the following functions: Ensuring Design for Manufacturability: Working closely with engineering teams through the entire development cycle to ensure that not only is the design robust, but that it is manufacturable in high-volumes. This entails an ability to understand new technologies, structural/mechanical design and an ability to influence through data/statistics based insights. Contract-Manufacturer (CM) Readiness: Work with the CapEx, Fixture (Automation / Manual) and Factory teams at every build to ensure that the fixtures needed for assembling the product and the test stations for testing them are in place and qualified; SOP for assembling products are ready and the operators are trained. Yield management: Lead the team to triage all yield hitters and drive Failure Analysis (FA) to understand if the issues are on account of Design/Process/Part-quality and drive the responsible teams to address the issue. Communication: Synthesize information on the program (product readiness for mass-production, factory readiness, relevant, trade-offs, impact on development milestones) into concise communication for Senior Management.
