  • VLDB 2020 Engineering Opportunities


Are you passionate about large-scale distributed and database systems? Do you want to work on cutting-edge systems technology that impacts hundreds of millions of users around the globe? Join us to design and build Apple’s next-generation storage, infrastructure, and cloud services. Databases Database systems developed at Apple transform heterogeneous and geographically distributed storage systems into a multi-tenant relational back-end. Security and privacy must be maintained across all our systems and providing timely results requires advanced query planning and execution, optimization, and multi-tenant scheduling. Database Systems at Apple handle exabytes of data and petabytes of metadata. Storage Systems Do you get stoked about building software from the ground up? We are in the early stages of our journey to build a storage substrate (Blob, Block, and File System) for Apple Cloud Services. This foundational cloud primitive is an elastic, scalable, and secure distributed unstructured/structured data storage system. Join our team where unconventional thinking is celebrated, disruptive ideas are rewarded. Data Analytics Build high-performance, scalable, and extensible systems to facilitate insights into storage and access patterns, while preserving the privacy of our users. Engage in applied research such as pattern mining, anomaly detection, predictive modeling, classification, and optimization. Developer Platform CloudKit, Apple’s cloud back-end service and app development framework, provides strongly consistent storage for structured data. It’s the foundation for many of Apple’s most meaningful and popular apps, such as iCloud Photos, iCloud Drive, Notes, Keynote, and Apple News, as well as many third-party apps. By relying on CloudKit to provide scale, consistency, durability and security, application developers are free to focus on delivering app front-end logic. Messaging & Real Time Communication Messaging systems enable real-time experiences, with very low latency and very high availability, through Internet-scale distributed systems. These systems power products like FaceTime, iMessage, and Apple Push Notification service. The platform solves a large breadth of challenges across identity, messaging, queueing, presence, routing, relays, developer APIs, and much more. Networking & Edge Build the API gateway to all Apple Cloud Services, transiting millions of requests per second and terabits of traffic through data centers around the world. Work on areas such as client connectivity, load balancing, content delivery, video streaming, and media transcoding in the cloud. Technical Program Management Are you a world-class Program Manager? Do you want to team up with our like-minded engineers to deliver amazing products and services for hundreds of millions of users? Then come join us…we’re looking for people like you!
