There is a lot that goes into building the most secure yet user-friendly devices in the world. We are a unique Software Development group with a charter to secure our platforms that include iOS SW, iOS Devices, and Mac. We build solutions that are used by our customers, our engineering teams, and our manufacturing environments. We are looking for a detail-oriented technical engineering project manager who will partner with our engineering managers to organize/drive cross-functional efforts across Apple. This role requires an energetic and motivated individual with strong communication, organization, and technical skills who works well in a fast-paced dynamic environment. Are you ready for this challenging yet highly visible and rewarding opportunity?

Key Qualifications

  • At least 5 years of program or project management in software development
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills to engineers, managers, and executives
  • Identifying risks, developing mitigation strategies, and facilitating resolutions
  • Technical knowledge in software engineering fields and/or infrastructure (systems and network)
  • Experience working with consumer hw manufacturing from a program perspective
  • Experience working with globally dispersed teams


Description

Our organization works with many cross functional teams across the company. We're looking for someone that can partner with our engineering managers and engineering teams to aid in aligning the cross functional teams on features, schedules, issues, etc... Our typical requests involve either enhancements to existing systems, augment features, or building completely new systems to meet business requirements. In any of these cases, we start off discussions/meetings with our cross functional partners to obtain, negotiate, and align on requirements. As an Engineering Project Manager, you will be key to facilitating/driving these discussions and meetings along with Engineering Managers and/or Engineers to collect/define/align/plan for any initiative. This initial phase will also involve spawning internal discussions with engineering managers, engineers (as required), QA, Infrastructure, and SRE teams to further understand the capability of existing systems, to reach consensus on whether to leverage existing, or to build new. Once it gets past the investigation and planning phase, it's time to work closely with all the stakeholders to define milestones and track them to ensure we are on target in successfully delivering the solution. From this point on, it's project management 101 to make sure that all the dependent pieces are moving orderly through every step of the way until successful project completion. The engineering/infrastructure teams will look to the engineering project manager to help them prioritize and focus to maximize the level of efforts to meet the commitments in time with highest quality.

Education & Experience

B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent major is a huge plus 5+ years of experience in relevant fields
