Apple Maps is the most popular mapping application on iOS. We offer an incredible, connected experience across the Apple ecosystem – iOS, macOS, Apple Watch, tvOS, CarPlay – and are delivering the future of maps to hundreds of millions of customers. The Experience Programs team builds the features our customers interact with. If you’ve ever searched for a restaurant, explored a transit route, received driving directions or visited a city in FlyOver, you’ve seen our work. We’re looking for an extraordinary Program Manager to join our team. Program Managers at Maps deliver the right feature at the right time. It’s a hands-on, cross-functional, highly-engaged job. No tourists. A good PM is the beating heart of their team. For this role, we’re looking for an expert Program Manager. Someone who’s experienced at “the PM thing". Someone to handle our trickiest, hardest projects. To be responsible for a large portfolio of work. To wrangle huge amounts of detail. And to ensure that the right decisions are being made by the right people, all the time. In this role, you will keep your eyes on the vision and your hands in the details. You'll get stuff built. You’ll plan. Prioritize. Coordinate. Drive. And ship.
