Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States
Software and Services


Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number:200352929
Come help us build the next generation cloud platform to support Internet services across Apple. In Cloud Infrastructure we build and run systems which form the foundation for some of Apple’s most exciting services, including iCloud, Maps, iTunes, and more. In this role, you have the unique opportunity to own and deliver key components in a new platform that will power Apple's growing suite of infrastructure and customer-facing services. We are looking for an extraordinary software engineer to design and develop a new hybrid cloud platform for managing infrastructure across in-house and third-party cloud providers. Experience running services and infrastructure in public cloud providers is essential, and practical knowledge of Terraform, Kubernetes, Pulumi, Spinnaker, and other cloud native ecosystems is highly valued. We’re looking for someone with a proven track record in building enterprise platforms — but we value potential as highly as experience. You’ll be familiar with the broader fields of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and cloud resource management, and you're excited by the prospect of working collaboratively with other engineering teams and internal customers. You will demonstrate a strong practical understanding of how to develop and operate practical, fault-tolerant high-performance distributed systems, and you will have influence over the tools, APIs, and architecture of the platform. You're also excited about applying practical systems-level knowledge to understand and solve problems under and over the hood.

Key Qualifications

  • Proficiency in at least one IaC technology and one modern programming language
  • Experience building enterprise platforms that enable large-scale management of dynamic cloud resources
  • Strong understanding of infrastructure provisioning, cloud security, and cost management in public cloud environments (e.g. AWS, Azure, or GCP)
  • Passion for writing high-quality, reliable code; unit and integration tests; and clear and concise documentation
  • Familiarity or willingness to learn Golang, Python, Java, and TypeScript
  • Understanding and practical experience with HTTP, DNS, RPC frameworks, databases, and operating systems
  • Experience in designing, implementing, and managing systems that offer self-service and self-healing capabilities


Develop platform services and frameworks for hybrid cloud management, building on and contributing to open source IaC technologies like Terraform and Pulumi Work closely with internal customers to understand their requirements and workflows, and propose new features and ecosystem changes to streamline their experience using the platform Drive new components and features from concept to release: design, build, test, and ship at a regular cadence Share ownership of the team’s code bases, service architecture, tools, and developer experience and maintain a high quality bar to ensure optimal development velocity Build solutions that integrate open source software with Apple’s internal ecosystem and third-party cloud provider APIs

Education & Experience

BS, MS or PhD in Computer Science, or equivalent experience

Additional Requirements

  • Knowledge of Kubernetes, containerization technologies, Spinnaker, and cloud orchestration are a plus
  • Excitement for Agile methodologies, including pair programming, TDD, and continuous delivery of software
  • Great communication skills and a deep sense of ownership for small tasks and large projects alike
