Come join the group that helped take AirPods from concept to manufacturing! Our team drives the audio platform in current and future Audio Products with wireless on one side and DSPs on the other. We work on embedded systems from bare metal to multicore/multiprocessor environments. The code base is primarily in C and C++ using an RTOS, but you should be comfortable rolling up your sleeves to dig into the HW (schematics, layouts, oscilloscopes, logic analyzers) as well as working up the SW chain (wireless stacks, iOS Apps, etc.). This role will help define architecture and features used across multiple product lines with a long term platform vision.
