Do you have a desire to seek out and solve exceedingly difficult challenges rather than the easy ones? Do you thrive on adversity? Do you believe that truly valuable and meaningful accomplishments are the result of pushing the limits of perseverance? Do you believe that a world-class team with relentless drive can surpass even their own high expectations? We do! But we also realize this job isn't for everyone. What we do isn't easy but you don't take the easy path. Apple is seeking a highly motivated and results- oriented compiler performance engineer to join our group that is driving advanced exploration for next generation iPhone, iPad, and Mac CPU architectures!

Key Qualifications

  • Proficiency in C and C++.
  • Assembly programming expertise.

  • LLVM compiler experience a plus, but not required.


As a compiler performance engineer on the CPU team, you will act as our liaison with Apple's internal compiler team and help drive the design of the CPU to maximize performance for compiled code, while simultaneously pushing the compiler to help maximize CPU performance.
