These are the people who power the App Store, Apple TV, Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple Books. And they do it on a massive scale, meeting Apple’s high expectations with dedication to deliver a huge variety of entertainment in over 35 languages to more than 150 countries. These engineers build secure, end-to-end solutions. They develop the custom software used to process all the creative work, the tools that providers use to deliver that media, all the server-side systems, and the APIs for many Apple services. Thanks to Apple’s unique integration of hardware, software, and services, engineers here partner to get behind a single unified vision. That vision always includes a deep commitment to strengthening Apple’s privacy policy, one of Apple’s core values. Although services are a bigger part of Apple’s business than ever before, these teams remain small, flexible, and multi-functional, offering greater exposure to the array of opportunities here. First, iTunes revolutionized how we listen to music and then our App Store ignited a cultural, social and economic phenomenon that changed how people work, play, meet, travel and so much more. Today Apple continues to push the boundaries of innovation and the team behind the App Store, Apple Music, iTunes, and many other high profile products on iPhone, Mac and AppleTV+ are called Apple Media Products. With your passion and dedication to running successful projects there's no telling what you could accomplish. We are seeking an extraordinary software engineer to join the Universal Media Engineering team responsible for powering Siri and Universal Search for the new Apple TV, Safari and Spotlight across all Apple devices. As a Universal Media team member, you will own key modules of the product and be responsible for delivering industry grade, quality solutions. We offer an environment where you are an integral part of an innovative, impactful team making a difference. Be ready to make something phenomenal when you come here. Dynamic, inspiring people and innovative, industry-defining technologies are the norm at Apple. The people who work here have reinvented and defined entire industries with our products and services. The same passion for innovation also applies to our business practices - strengthening our dedication to leave the world better than we found it. You should join the Apple Universal Media team if you want to help deliver the next amazing Apple product.
