Are you passionate about reducing environmental impacts through
innovative designs? Do you have a deep understanding of material
production and want to apply that knowledge to affect real-world
change? Are you comfortable working across a range of materials and
applications and have a knack for using data to drive
decision-making? Please read on! Apple's Environmental Technologies
team is seeking a candidate to help us design world-leading
products with lower environmental impacts. We use a combination of
detailed accounting, comprehensive material modeling, and targeted
technology engagements to drive strategic environmental
initiatives. Our methods are rooted in an understanding of
materials, focused on how materials are extracted and produced, how
materials are recycled and recovered, and how these different
routes affect material properties, material impurities, and
material applications. We are data-driven, with an emphasis on
accurately accounting for material use, identifying critical levers
to reduce primary material use, and driving teams to reduce
material use and/or use recycled materials. We also focus on
recycling systems and material recovery systems, and how materials
can be used in products to allow better material recovery at
product end-of-life. We are determined to uncover where material
impacts occur within our products and product supply chains, find
opportunities to mitigate those impacts, and drive initiatives to
reduce those impacts.
- Knowledge of material life cycles, from raw material extraction
to end-of-life options for material recovery and recycling, with a
particular focus on materials and recycling processes used in
consumer electronics and industrial manufacturing.
- Knowledge of metal and mineral production and refining and
recycling processes, including new, emerging technologies in
hydrometallurgy, pyrometallurgy, and bio-metallurgy.
- Experience with developing process models and quantitative
analyses for material extraction, synthesis, processing, recovery,
- Comfortable with developing assumptions, working and making
decisions with limited and imperfect data, taking appropriate
risks, and quantifying and identifying sources of uncertainty.
- Familiarity with life-cycle assessment methods, modeling
approaches, and applications is an advantage.
- Familiarity with environmental indicators and impacts,
particularly with respect to resources and carbon.
- Scientific computing skills, including data analysis,
visualization, and working with large datasets. Programming
experience with Python, R, or similar is preferred.
As a member of our team, you'll work on practical design
problems to support Apple's resources goals. You will work closely
with a range of engineering and operations teams on a large variety
of problems. Most projects will include gathering, developing, and
integrating detailed material data, understanding material
production methods and manufacturing processes, using these data
and understanding to develop environmental guidance, and driving
teams to adopt environmentally preferred material choices. You are
a specialist in spreadsheets and data manipulation In this work you
will also investigate and develop recycling technologies with other
Apple teams to enable greater use of recycled materials in Apple
products and to improve recovery of those materials from product
end-of-life. You are a Self-motivated, enthusiastic, and
detail-oriented individual with excellent at written and verbal
communication skills. You are comfortable presenting to and working
with both technical and non-technical teams
Education & Experience
BS degree required; MS and PhD degrees welcome; material
science, material or chemical engineering, metallurgy, and/or
related backgrounds are strongly preferred.
