The Wallet, Payments & Commerce (Apple Pay) organization is looking for an exceptional Engineering Manager to join our server team. The ideal candidate would be a unique individual who can help recruit and build a new team centered around our NYC location. This new team will be sponsored by one of our existing server teams in Cupertino and work closely with allied server teams in London, Montreal, and Shanghai. This team will also work in a highly cross functional atmosphere with teams covering project management, business, product, partner engineering, iOS client, IoT, security, and UX.
