Apple Maps is the most popular mapping application on iOS. We offer an incredible, connected experience across the Apple ecosystem – iOS, macOS, Apple Watch, tvOS, CarPlay – and are delivering the future of maps to hundreds of millions of customers. Program Managers at Maps deliver the right feature at the right time. Itʼs a hands-on, cross-functional, highly-engaged job. No tourists. A good PM is the beating heart of their team. The Experience Programs team builds the features our customers interact with. If you've ever explored a city using Look Around, requested driving directions to a park or museum, or searched for a restaurant on your Apple Watch … you’ve seen our work. As part of Experiences, the Platform team builds the foundations that our customers and developer community rely on. Want to explore a city with FlyOver? Build an innovative iOS app using MapKit? Add Maps to your site using MapKit JS? That's what we do. Weʼre looking for an extraordinary Program Manager to join our team. For this role, weʼre looking for an expert Program Manager. Someone whoʼs experienced at “the PM thing". Someone to handle our trickiest, hardest projects. To be responsible for a large portfolio of work. To wrangle huge amounts of detail. And to ensure that the right decisions are being made by the right people, all the time. In this role, you will keep your eyes on the vision and your hands in the details. You'll get stuff built. Youʼll plan. Prioritize. Coordinate. Drive. And ship.
