Motion Sensing MEMS Sensor Architect
Company: Apple Inc.
Posted on: June 12, 2021
The inertial sensor team develops and integrates inertial
sensors across a variety of programs including iPhone, iPad, Watch
and AirPods. You will play a key role in engaging with external
vendors and internal customers to specify, develop and characterize
inertial sensing systems for autonomous technologies. You should be
familiar with inertial sensor development such as design,
performance metrics, inertial sensor usage, and system integration.
Engineering excellence and thoroughness are expected and
encouraged. Invention and patent creation are expected and
supported. Pushing the envelope to design and ship innovative
products with best-in-class technologies and user experiences is
the main goal of this sensing technology team at Apple.
- 10+ years of hands-on experience and proven track record in
inertial sensing hardware development.
- Experience in architecture, design, characterization, and
validation of inertial sensing systems.
- Proficient in the theory of operation, signal processing,
fabrication, packaging and design trade-offs.
- Fundamental knowledge and experience in physics, mechanical,
electrical, and material science engineering, and manufacturing
technology relevant for sensor fabrication.
- Expertise in simulation, data collection, data analysis, and
statistical analysis tools (ANSYS Multiphysics or similar tools,
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills and solid
teamwork and leadership skills.
- Willingness and ability to travel are required.
You will be responsible for defining inertial sensor
specifications and qualification requirements as well as reviewing
and approving verification results. This work leverages your
ability to identify, create, and document new sensing system
metrics that deliver performance pertinent to user experience.
Scope new sensing technologies and proof-of-concept investigations.
Interact with suppliers and drive sensor designs to enable new and
improved user experience. Diagnose engineering issues with
scientific method driving to definitive root cause. Prepare and
deliver presentations to clearly communicate technical status,
risks and mitigation strategies for sensor projects.
Education & Experience
PhD degree in engineering plus 10 years of relevant industry
experience, or Bachelor/MS degree in engineering with a minimum of
15 years of relevant industry experience.
