Will you help us design the next generation of revolutionary Apple products? The Apple Audio Products team, known for our category-defining AirPods and the exciting new HomePod, is searching for a self-motivating, passionate electrical engineer for the role of Hardware System Integrator

You will engage in a collaborative, rapidly changing environment to integrate new technologies into a product category that represents the frontier of consumer electronics

You will become part of a hands-on development team that cultivates engineering excellence, creativity and innovation

This is a unique position, providing you ownership of all things "EE" about a product, from architecture to component selection, schematic capture and board layout to validation and manufacturing. Our products are groundbreaking in every way: integration, connectivity, power consumption, fabrication, reliability, manufacturing scale, and design

You will play a meaningful role in the development of Apple Audio products, collaborating with virtually every team involved in the process, including: Product Design / Mechanical Engineering; Firmware; iOS; Acoustics; Industrial Design; EMC, Reliability, Operations, and more

Collaboration across teams is a key component of success at Apple. The right candidate will thrive in that type of environment.

Dynamic, smart, and exceptional people and inspiring, innovative technologies are the norm here. Will you join us in crafting solutions that do not yet exist?

Key Qualifications

  • You have great EE fundamentals. This means you have a deep understanding of why our discipline works the way it does; you've developed an intuition and can apply it to new topics because you understand the basics
  • You have hands-on experience in prototype bring-up and debugging, functional verification. You have an ability to go learn how to quantify and test new technologies
  • You have experience expertly crafting high volume products from beginning to end, and dealing with contract manufacturers is a huge bonus
  • Experience in low power embedded systems, from 8-bit and 16-bit micro-controllers to multi-core ARM based SoC's, is deeply beneficial. Every μA is sacred
  • Your proven experience in the following areas will serve you well in: processor selection, various communication protocols (especially USB, SPI, I2C and UART), analog design and analysis, audio system design and measurement, sensor design & integration, and low power circuit design
  • Experience in the following areas is especially desirable: DC/DC power design, Bluetooth & WiFi radio integration and video electronics design
  • 3 years or more of the above experience is preferred, but we encourage you to apply with any level of experience


As a member of the team, you will contribute to every aspect of electrical engineering, including:
- Architecture development and review
- Defining and influencing custom, future silicon
- Component selection and maintaining vendor relationships
- Schematic capture and review
- Manage PCB layout with our team of designers
- Validation planning and execution, utilizing local and CM resources to execute deep and detailed validation
- Custom silicon specifications and validation, from simple glue logic to multi-core ARM SoC's

You will go beyond the industry norm and demonstrate creativity in problem solving, ability to think dynamically and outside of standard convention, and adapt quickly to new technical areas. We promote innovation and new technology to further improve Apple's hardware performance and user experience

The people who work here have reinvented and defined entire industries with the Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Apple Watch and now AirPods and HomePod. We have done the same with services, including iTunes, the App Store, Apple Music, and Apple Pay, setting the standard for excellence. The same passion for innovation that goes into our products also applies to our practices - strengthening our commitment to leave the world better than we found it. You should join us to help deliver the next amazing Apple product
