Imagine what you could do here. At Apple, new 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. Apple delivers great features and great privacy to our users. The Privacy QA team takes on privacy-focused testing across Apple’s products and services. Our QA engineers execute some tests themselves, and also partner with teams around the company to ensure Apple delivers on the high bar we set for respecting and protecting our users’ data. We are looking for an accomplished QA manager to lead this team, which forms a critical part of Apple’s privacy goals.
- 3–5 years of experience leading a team as a QA Manager or Lead
- Possess a deep understanding of SQA methodologies and practices
- Passion for customer privacy
- Strong collaboration, communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills
- Ability to track and manage numerous parallel activities
- Ability to work in a fast-paced dynamic environment
The manager of Privacy QA will lead a team that works with Privacy Engineering and feature engineering teams to assess risks, understand coverage needs and priorities, and develop a privacy-focused test plan. We follow two models to achieve good coverage. In some cases the team will execute that plan itself, but more commonly the team will engage with the feature owner to ensure strong coverage of privacy-critical aspects of the system. This position requires a self-motivated individual with strong technical and communication skills to lead a collaborative team. Successful candidates will need to have a strong technical background to ensure productive testing under both models. You will be working across disciplines and domains, so the ability to learn quickly and be excited to grow in new areas is a must.
