Key Qualifications

  • 5-10 years industry experience working as a Software Engineer. Not only do you write phenomenal code yourself, but the rest of the team is made more productive by your experience and decisions.

  • Experience writing testable code and following test driven development principles.
  • Excellent practical programming skills. (Preferred Java, PHP, or Javascript, but don’t hesitate to apply if you’re great at something else.)
  • Proven infrastructure experience - should know how to architect an application in a cloud environment such as AWS, GCP, or Azure.
  • Experience with an RDBMS such as Postgres, MySQL or similar.
  • Reasonable experience on a Unix terminal, scripting, and automation is a plus.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
  • Ability to wear different hats, do whatever it takes ability and attitude.

Our systems are used every day by product engineering teams at Apple designing and building our consumer products. As a senior staff member you will be encouraged to provide mentorship to other team members and help establish software engineering standard methodologies.
