Are you a leader? Do you want to utilize your engineering background to make big things happen? Can you deliver a complex and fast-paced schedule? We seek a results-oriented leader with a consistent track record running large multi-functional teams to deliver high quality, complex SoC's and technologies on time. In this critical, high-profile role, you will lead a team of technical Engineering Program Managers (EPM) in the Hardware Technology organization. We are looking for a leader with the breadth of experience, and depth of technical knowledge. As a recognized leader, your management charter is not limited to but will include Apple's custom SoC Concept, a critical first milestone in Apple's New Silicon Product process, working closely with Architecture, SoC Development, Software, and Systems EE teams - across all Apple product platforms. Beyond Concept, you will support the "fast simulation" of critical IPs in order to "shift left" software development ahead of SoC arrival. You will also align the SoC/System/SW roadmaps, and ensure strategic silicon and module alignment from Concept to mass production for all of Apple's product platforms. Additional responsibilities will include delivery of critical new technologies requiring high multi-functional collaboration, to mass production, working at the platform level - the intersection of Apple's groundbreaking SoCs, System Hardware, and Software.
