Wireless System Architect - Apple Vision Pro
Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States
Apple is where individual imaginations gather together, committing to the values that lead to great work. Every new product we build, service we create, or Apple Store experience we deliver is the result of us making each other’s ideas stronger. That happens because every one of us shares a belief that we can make something wonderful and share it with the world, changing lives for the better. It’s the diversity of our people and their thinking that inspires the innovation that runs through everything we do. When we bring everybody in, we can do the best work of our lives. Here, you’ll do more than join something — you’ll add something. Apple Vision Pro is a revolutionary spatial computer that seamlessly blends digital content with your physical space. It will allow us to do the things we love in ways never before possible — all while staying connected to the people around us. We are seeking a highly motivated, energetic Wireless System Architect to lead and drive wireless system designs, define product requirements, identify suitable technologies and drive implementation and validation. The ideal candidate oversees and analyzes key system architectural requirements and implementation trade-off while taking into account power consumption budgets, coexistence, cross-layer platform design etc.
- 10+ years experience in design and development of wireless communication systems
- Experience in wireless communication protocols like 802.11be/ax, BT, Cellular NR/LTE, IP and their application to E2E product design
- Hands on experience with lab test stations, performance and power characterization is needed
- Experience in optimizing air-interface protocols to meet product requirements
- Experience with multi-radio coexistence management is a plus.
- Experience in defining technical specifications for wireless products in IEEE/3GPP and/or other forums where specifications are discussed is a plus
- Knowledge of Matlab, Python and/or C/C++ for algorithm development, modeling, and system simulations
In this technical role, you’ll be part of a product systems architecture team that’s responsible for design, development and productization of some of the most innovate consumer electronic devices. You’ll work with talented RF HW, SW and design engineers in shaping wireless architecture, design and validation and providing the features and benefits to Apple customers. This role requires sound fundamentals in wireless communications system design, excellent communication and persuasion skills in addition to being comfortable with working through ambiguities while still making progress towards a common product definition. Other responsibilities include: Define wireless system requirements that meets relevant KPIs for key product use-cases Map system requirements to wireless architecture covering all aspects of the wireless system including communication protocols, coexistence, RFFE design, antenna, de-sense to optimize for cost, power and performance Drive functional and performance validation of wireless HW and SW designs Develop strategic relationships with cross-functional engineering teams to design innovative enhancements to wireless protocols Define test suites and test cases, bring up wireless lab test stations, simulate and verify performance and power KPIs Contribute towards technical specifications in relevant standards bodies
