Weekly Hours: 35
Role Number:200255258
What happens when the world’s most innovative engineers collaborate with the world’s most creative storytellers? TV gets reinvented. Meet the reinventors: The Apple TV Services teams created and manage the Apple TV app, which redefined and refined the way people watch their favorite shows, movies and so much more—including everything we love from the major subscription services. Today, these teams also manage one of the most exciting new realms at Apple: They bring viewers the critically acclaimed and award winning Apple Originals in Apple TV+. And they’ve engineered it so it can be enjoyed not only on Apple devices, but also directly on many new televisions and third-party streaming devices. To deliver Apple-level quality on a global scale, these engineers employ talent and tools to smoothly ingest and process a wide array of data. They work cross-functionally to handle video flow from content ingestion, store services, playback, and virtually everything else it takes to make the experience as seamless as possible. Join them to see what else is possible.
