The Program Manager will focus on launching commerce features and platform capabilities for our growing services business. You will need to have hands on experience working with engineers, engineering managers, and finance teams. You will develop tools and processes to gain efficiencies in the development and testing lifecycle. With a strong background in commerce, you will drive technical discussions with internal and external partners to implement the right solution for customers. The role requires a combination of program management, strong engineering background, and ability to build reciprocal relationships across various teams within our Apple Media Products and the Payments and Commerce organization. We are looking for someone who loves digging into details, finding patterns, and driving operational efficiencies under demanding timeframes and in parallel focusing on building scalable commerce platform capabilities. Of course, strong fundamentals are expected, but you have more. - You take responsibility; you feel a personal stake in the product you ship; you communicate responsibilities and scope clearly. - Integrity is everything to you. You handle risk and manage trade-offs. You are a strong team player. - You thrive in uncertainty and strive to bring order to it; you have deep wisdom and judgement; you keep your eye on the ball. - Building positive relationships comes naturally; you are aware of politics but do not get mired in them.
