Posted: Aug 20, 2020

Weekly Hours: 40

Role Number:200186671

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.
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, nimble, and cross-functional, offering greater exposure to the array of opportunities here.

Key Qualifications

  • 5+ years experience developing high transaction volume applications in Java.
  • Experience with server-side systems and service-oriented architectures.
  • In-depth experience with object-oriented design and programming.
  • Proficiency in NoSQL databases (Cassandra).
  • Exposure to relational data modeling and SQL.
  • Proficiency working with XML and/or JSON.
  • Familiarity with messaging, queuing, and workflow systems is a plus.
  • Ability to work with incomplete requirements, to interacting directly with partners, to thrive in multi-functional teams on critical projects, and to juggle multiple priorities.

Description

In particular, on this team, you will participate in crafting and implementing support for ingestion, automated curation, and management of content to support customer-facing features of the App Store. You will build APIs and services to vend content to customer-facing storefront applications, as well as other systems at Apple. We are looking for a self starting, high-energy individual who is not afraid to question assumptions and with excellent written and oral skills. Besides purely technical aspects, ability to interact directly with the partners, and deduce the technical requirements for a project based on fragmentary business input is very important. You should have:
- Experience developing large-scale web-based applications using Java and other object-oriented languages.
- Familiarity with XML & JSON technologies, database modeling skills, and object-relational mapping experience are also strongly desired.
- Experience with large data repositories and digital media formats for audio, video, and/or e-books is also helpful.

The ability to be a good teammate under deadline constraints in addition to ability to take on problems with forward-thinking solutions is key to success in this position. Very few teams have the breadth of involvement in Apple's product pipeline across the board as that exercised by this team's transformation of content.

Education & Experience

BS or MS in Computer Science or equivalent work experience.
