Description

The Platforms and Shared Services Program Management team serve a highly cross-functional role working on the foundational systems of our media products, including App Store, Apple Music, TV App, and more. Our programs are a blend of product, business, technical, architecture, process, and physical infrastructure and we’re looking for you to drive these cross-functional programs from inception to outcome. In this hands-on role you will work with all levels of the engineering org, as well as site-reliability engineering, business teams, operational teams, marketing, analytics, and external vendors. You are the thread tying these disparate teams together to deliver end-to-end projects that improve our products globally. You will be involved in all aspects of the project life-cycle, whether it be helping develop functional requirements, getting into the detailed analysis, facilitating proofs-of-concept or QA, and tracking release management of multiple projects at once. You’re someone who loves diving in to the detail as well as looking at the big picture, who is as comfortable in a detailed engineering discussion as presenting to executives. Strong fundamentals are a must, but you have more. You take ownership; you feel a personal stake in your projects; you communicate responsibilities and scope clearly; you value integrity; you handle conflict; you know how things work; you work for the success of the entire ecosystem; you thrive in uncertainty and strive to bring order to it; you have judgement and make decisions; you keep your eye on the ball; you build positive relationships; you are aware of politics but do not get mired in them; you are constantly looking to improve yourself and your team; you see around corners; and you deliver. This is a full time position, located at our Cupertino, California headquarters.
