Job description

The Apple Media Products Engineering team is one of the most exciting examples of Apple’s long-held passion for combining art and technology. 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 high performance to deliver a huge variety of entertainment in over 35 languages to more than 150 countries. Apple Media Products Program Managers partner with engineers who build secure, end-to-end solutions. Thanks to Apple’s unique integration of hardware, software, and services, engineers and Program Managers 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, nimble, and cross-functional, offering greater exposure to the array of opportunities here.

We are looking for an engineering program manager to steer the performance aspect of feature development and drive cross functional initiatives. You will help define metrics and KPIs, and lead teams to execute on performance goals. This is a hands-on role working with the engineering org, as well as site-reliability engineering, business teams, operational teams, marketing, analytics, and external vendors. You are the thread tying these disparate teams together to deliver end-to-end projects that improve our products globally. You will be involved in all aspects of the project life-cycle, whether it be helping develop functional requirements, getting into the detailed analysis, facilitating proofs-of-concept or QA, and tracking release management of multiple projects at once. You build positive relationships; you are aware of politics but do not get mired in them; you are constantly looking to improve yourself and your team; you see around corners; and you deliver.

Skills & requirements

  • Proven track record not just in delivering programs, but also in defining, owning, and driving new strategic initiatives across an organization
  • High-level of technical competency and experience collaborating “hands-on” with highly technical teams
  • Experience delivering highly cross-functional projects or programs of work across disparate groups
  • Strong relationship management and facilitation skills both within diverse engineering teams and cross functional organizations
  • Proven self-starter, who is dedicated and demonstrates creative and critical thinking abilities
  • Outstanding presentation skills, both written and oral, including the ability to convey complex requirements in a clear, concise and credible manner
  • Overall, a highly driven, results-oriented, problem solver who will drive programs to deliver value quickly to our customers
