We live in a mobile and device driven world where knowledge of
the physical world around us is needed. We rely on this knowledge
to get around, to learn about our environment and to enable
spectacular new features for custom applications. Apple is meeting
those needs as robustly and as creatively as possible and is
interested in people who want to help meet that commitment. The
success we are striving will be the result of very skilled people
working in an environment which cultivates creativity, partnership,
and thinking of old problems in new ways. If that sounds like the
kind of environment that you find intriguing, then let's talk.
These elements come together to make Apple an amazing environment
for motivated people to do the greatest work of their lives. You
will become part of a team that sets the standard in developing
excellence, creativity and innovation. Will you help us design the
next generation of revolutionary Apple products?
The Camera Hardware Engineering group is responsible for the
design, development, and innovation of camera hardware for all
related Apple products. Our target is to deliver superior camera
hardware to enable best-in-class camera user experience. In this
role, you will be at the center of image sensor design effort, with
a critical impact on camera design.
* You will have at least three years of digital design
experience with image sensors and cameras. * Familiar with silicon
design methodologies and tool flows. Hands on experience with
silicon bringup, characterization and debug desirable. *
Knowledgeable enough in aspects of sensor usage to productively
work with and support the camera team. * Familiar with image sensor
performance metrics, image sensor usage, and integration into
camera systems. Ideally, will also have knowledge of the general
industry trends and technical challenges. * Experience beyond image
sensors in ALS, Proximity, MEMS and other sensors is a plus.
