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. The Vision Products Group is seeking a senior engineer to help architect and implement networking frameworks and APIs for our platforms. This engineer will enhance the capabilities and performance of these platforms through the development of edge computing, distributed systems, and a broad range of applications, including machine learning, computer vision, and multimedia processing.
