Role Number:200229852

Imagine what you could do here. At Apple, extraordinary ideas have a way of becoming industry leading products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Bring passion and dedication to your job and there's no telling what you could accomplish.

We are seeking an upbeat, self motivating and experienced senior hardware electrical engineer to be responsible for hardware development of research prototype boards.

We're a diverse collection of thinkers and doers, continually reimagining what's possible and developing solutions the world doesn't know of yet. You will play a pivotal role in the definition, architecture, and instantiation of hardware reference designs. As a key member of our Advanced Technologies team, you will have an outstanding opportunity to explore new technologies that fit within Apple's future applications and datacenter environments. Technologies that will become the bedrock of the infrastructure services that will delight and encourage millions of Apple customers every day.

Key Qualifications

  • 8+ yrs experience in electrical hardware design using Cadence Concept and Allegro development tools.
  • 5 yrs proven experience in integrating ARM-based products and architectures.
  • 3+ years ability with Verilog or VHDL development environments for CPLD and FPGA programming.
  • Design experience in digital logic, simulation, power conversion, and power delivery.
  • Experience with high-speed serial interfaces including signal integrity design and measurement fundamentals and optimization at the PCA level as well as among system interconnects (board to board connectors, custom high-speed cable designs)
  • Board bring-up skills including proficiency with oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, Protocol analyzers, and electronic loads
  • Experience driving in-house PCA development through prototype board manufacturing builds.
  • Experience leading multi-discipline teams in the debug and root cause of sophisticated technical issues at all levels of the system.
  • Experience working with software teams during bring-up and development including low-level kernel debugging tools.


This challenging and exciting role combines two critical aspects of Hardware Electrical board design. First, you will be the primary owner responsible for the delivery of all hardware prototype boards for the IS Advanced Technologies Group. Second, this role will require working with internal cross-functional software, hardware, and silicon teams to bring-up, characterize board power, and validate new digital interfaces and protocols in our concept boards. Teamwork and communication are completely foundational requirements for ensuring success in this role.

Education & Experience

Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering

Masters Degree in Engineering Field or MBA preferred

Additional Requirements

  • Ability to thrive in a 'start-up' environment!
  • Scripting experience is a plus (i.e. bash, python)
  • Passionate to mentor and coach, bringing up the next generation of HW designers!
