Cloud Infrastructure Engineer
Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino) , California , United States
Software and Services
Posted: Feb 8, 2021
Weekly Hours: 40
Role Number: 200221680
Apple's compiler team is looking for a Cloud infrastructure engineer to drive tooling for open source and internal compiler technologies. We want to minimize the latency and engineering effort to deploy changes in the Swift and Clang compilers and the LLDB debugger, while maintaining (and improving!) our Cloud infrastructure. We believe that continuous deployment of toolchain technologies will substantially increase the compiler team's productivity, as well as the productivity of our internal users. You would join an existing infrastructure engineering team, where you would work closely with compiler engineers. Our compilers build the full OS and software stack installed on billions of Apple devices, and are shipped via Xcode to millions of developers around the world. We welcome new contributors who are excited by the opportunity to have a significant impact. We believe that every engineer brings unique skills and perspective. Far more than any specific experience or skill, we are looking for engineers who want to build great software, learn and develop their skills, and ultimately enable others to develop amazing products.
- Experience in systems engineering/Cloud infrastructure role.
- Passion for continuous build, integration, test, and delivery systems.
- Ability to design and develop new technologies in a changing environment.
- Positive and respectful attitude in a diverse environment.
- Interest in building great developer tools.
You'll work on Cloud infrastructure tooling for Swift, Clang and LLDB debugger on all Apple platforms. You will make decisions about how to architect engineering, and integration workflows, considering both short- and long-term goals. Once solutions are identified, you'll design, implement, and deploy automation and workflow changes for building, testing, and deploying the toolchain. You'll engage with the open source LLVM (https://llvm.org/) and Swift (https://swift.org/) communities, reducing downstream overhead by driving improvements to open source infrastructure, tooling, and engineering workflows at https://github.com/llvm and https://github.com/apple. You will improve the efficiency of open source engineering workflows and scale compiler qualification infrastructure to support Swift and Clang compilers. You will find opportunities to innovate, and create tools and processes to reduce or define away problems. As an example, you might work on improving the pull request testing process for open source changes in GitHub by making it more efficient and adding testing features. In addition to finding technical solutions to problems, you will be involved with coordinating between multiple teams within Apple and the open source community using clear, consistent and timely communication. You'll join a team based in Cupertino, California, and work closely with the larger developer tools organization colocated with us. Our teams have a wide range of experience, with engineers new to Apple working alongside veterans with decades of Apple experience. We will consider non-US applicants and are open to exploring visa options, we provide relocation assistance, and we offer excellent benefits.
Education & Experience
B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent experience.
- We welcome all applicants, but familiarity with any of the following areas will help you come up to speed fastest on this project:
- Experience developing and operating services and infrastructure in public cloud environments (AWS or GCP).
- Experience with CI/CD tools and techniques
- Experience with containerization and container orchestration services, including kubernetes
- Working knowledge of network protocols, load balancing technologies, transport protocols and Linux/Unix system internals.
- Proficient with various programming languages such as Python/Java/Ruby/Go for automation or integration with APIs.
- Distributed source control systems, like Git or Mercurial.
