Autonomy Integrity Engineer - SPG

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States
Software and Services


Role Number:200143940
How do you verify an AI? Join a team of talented engineers who are defining verification and validation for safe autonomous technology. The Special Projects Group at Apple is seeking an accomplished systems engineer to serve as an Autonomy Integrity Engineer. In this role, you will help inform the design of complex hardware and software systems and develop methods and tools to enable their analysis and validation. You will need to think broadly, connecting ideas across multiple technical domains: software design and development, machine learning, data science, control systems, and simulation – to name a few. You will be expected to view problems from multiple perspectives and at different levels of abstraction, and to tackle them from multiple directions. We expect successful candidates to demonstrate an ability to solve such problems efficiently, and to communicate about them effectively with a variety of audiences.

Key Qualifications

  • Experience with designing and delivering complex software systems, preferably in a safety-critical application.
  • Excellent C++ or Python skills and computer science fundamentals.
  • Experience using rigorous scientific methods for trade studies, testing, and problem solving.
  • A history of driving projects through the entire development lifecycle.


As an Autonomy Integrity Engineer, you will ensure that our autonomy meets our high standards for safety and performance. • You will identify target areas in which to drive improvement, develop tests and evaluations built on rigorous metrics, and deploy them at scale. • You will design methods for efficiently and robustly verifying a complex hardware and software system. • You will develop and maintain the processes and tools for system validation. • You will analyze cutting-edge autonomy to inform its design and implementation, working closely with cross-functional teams in the domains of machine learning, motion prediction, planning, and control. Apple is an Equal Opportunity Employer that is committed to inclusion and diversity. We also take affirmative action to offer employment and advancement opportunities to all applicants, including minorities, women, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities. Apple will not discriminate or retaliate against applicants who inquire about, disclose, or discuss their compensation or that of other applicants.
