Do you love working on challenges that no one has solved yet? As
a member of our dynamic group, you will have the unique and
rewarding opportunity to craft upcoming products that will delight
and inspire millions of Apple's customers every single day. Join us
to help transform wireless technology and deliver the next
groundbreaking Apple product!
In this role, you will be a key member of our team defining and
working on advancing Apple's wireless solutions.
- The ideal candidate has 5+ years of experience in specifying
and implementing features on wireless device platforms through to
successful integration and product launch.
- The candidate's experience should demonstrate a proven track
record in software/systems design and performance tradeoffs in
- Expertise with wireless chipset platforms (such as details of
WiFi and/or NR control and data plane, RF transceivers), system
integration topics such as platform operational modes, link
adaptation, RF front-end control and in-device coexistence.
- Expertise in modeling end to end performance of wireless
systems to optimize critical performance metrics (such as link
adaptation performance, throughput optimization, surround cell/scan
operations, edge of cell coverage issues).
- Deep understanding of wireless communication platforms and
modem requirements and use cases at both the network and the
consumer product level. This should ideally cover different
standards such as WiFi and LTE/5G NR.
- Strong knowledge of 3GPP standards (LTE, NR), WiFi, BT and
similar wireless technologies with an emphasis on the lower layers
such as MAC, Layer1
- Experience in leading cross-functional teams by technical
expertise and bringing solutions together for new products in
particular for the consumer device market is important.
- Ability to present complex technical topics to a multi-level
audience both internal and external to Apple.
- Strong communication skills, proficient programming skills in
C++ and/or modeling complex systems in MATLAB desirable.
In this role, you will Identify and drive innovation for
wireless systems with focus on enhancing end-user experience when
multiple wireless standards are active concurrently. The work
requires you to participate in a small dynamic team to define and
specify wireless systems performance optimization, with a focus on
integration of multiple technologies and how they should interact
in a complex consumer product environment. The expectation is to
analyze, model and optimize different wireless configurations and
usage scenarios for the best performance in challenging
environments to support the design teams. Create and participate to
then drive SW and system architectures as a result of this work in
a cross-functional team of domain experts to optimize
cross-technology performance and in-device coexistence across a
portfolio of products. There will be ample opportunity due to the
novel nature of the work to create intellectual property and
