We engineer high-quality, scalable and resilient distributed systems on cloud that power data exploration, analytics, reporting and production models. Our core systems are diverse and come with an unusual intersection of high data volumes with systems distributed across cloud and on-premise infrastructure.

On our team you will build solutions that integrate open source software with Apple's internal ecosystem. You will drive development of new components and features from concept to release: design, build, test, and ship at a regular cadence. You will work closely with internal customers to understand their requirements and workflows, and propose new features and ecosystem changes to streamline their experience of using the solutions on our platform.

This is a true software engineering role, where a large part of an engineer's time is spent in writing code and designing/developing applications on cloud, with the remainder being spent on tuning and debugging codebase, supporting production applications and supporting our application end-users. This role requires in-depth knowledge of brand-new technologies and cloud data platforms with the skills too independently learn new technologies and contribute to the success of various initiatives.

Education & Experience

* Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience
* 10+ years building enterprise level applications on large-scale distributed systems
