Imagine what you could do here. At Apple, new ideas have a way of becoming phenomenal products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Bring passion and dedication to your job and there's no telling what you could accomplish. Apple Media Products (AMP) first delighted users with downloadable music in April 2003 with the opening of the iTunes Store. Since then, AMP delivered countless innovations around the digital delivery of audio and video. And now we are innovating video story telling with the launch of Apple TV+. We are looking for a highly experienced, self-starting, and ambitious Full-Stack engineer who is not afraid to question assumptions as they build large-scale, data-driven systems to enable the growth of AppleTV+ during these critical early days of the service, and into the future. This is a unique opportunity to build at Apple’s scale in the media services industry and within AMP (the fastest growing division within Apple). If you’re passionate and creative while staying focused and curious we’ve got an exciting role for you. Apple TV+ is a brand new service, and it’s up to us to make it explode.
