Role Number:200207343

The people here at Apple don't just create products - they create the kind of wonder that's revolutionized entire industries. It's the diversity of those people and their ideas that inspires the innovation that runs through everything we do, from amazing technology to industry-leading environmental efforts. Join Apple, and help us leave the world better than we found it. Are you up for the challenge?

Apple's Measurement R&D group is recruiting Mechanical Systems Design Engineers with mechanical and automation design experience, strong communication and technical leadership skills.

You will brainstorm, design, develop and characterize metrology equipment used to calibrate and test Apple's new groundbreaking technology and products. Your design work will range from lab scale systems-- understanding and characterizing tool capability at sub-micron mechanical tolerances, to developing automated mass- production measurement tools, where balancing the engineering tradeoffs between precision, costs, lead-time and throughput is critical. With great diversity of the problem space, you will rely on your engineering background to architect the optimal solution for the problem at hand, leaning on the fundamentals of materials science, structural and thermal analysis, machinery design, automation and manufacturing processes.

You will work collaboratively with a creative and diverse team of experienced engineers from all disciplines including instrumentation, core technology, product design and operations teams developing state of the art measurement systems for Apple.

This position requires up to 25% international travel to support equipment design, deployment, and validation.
