The AirPod System Integration team is looking for Electrical Engineers who can own and deliver electronic solutions that elevate audio experiences to the highest standards. This is a unique position allowing ownership of all things "EE" about a product, from architecture to component selection, schematic capture and board layout to validation and manufacturing.

  • Technical expertise in the following areas is especially desirable: DC/DC power design, wireless technologies integration, audio system design and measurement, sensor design & integration
