Apple Media Products - Release Manager

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino) , California , United States

Software and Services


Posted: Jan 8, 2021

Role Number: 200214827

The Apple Media Products Engineering team is one of the most exciting examples of Apple's long-held passion for combining art and technology. These are the people who power the App Store, Apple TV, Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple Books. And they do it on a massive scale, meeting Apple's high expectations with high performance to deliver a huge variety of entertainment in over 35 languages to more than 150 countries. These engineers build secure, end-to-end solutions. They develop the custom software used to process all the creative work, the tools that providers use to deliver that media, all the server-side systems, and the APIs for many Apple services. Thanks to Apple's unique integration of hardware, software, and services, engineers here partner to get behind a single unified vision. That vision always includes a deep commitment to strengthening Apple's privacy policy, one of Apple's core values. Although services are a bigger part of Apple's business than ever before, these teams remain small, forward-thinking, and cross-functional, offering greater exposure to the array of opportunities here. This role is a mixture of hands-on SRE work and Process Management work, requiring a high level of commitment to ensuring smooth operations for the Apple Media Products Engineering team.
