Apple's packaging is often a customer's first experience with our brand. There is a universal joy and excitement in unboxing an Apple product-an experience crafted by a world-class engineering team. Each detail of interacting with our packaging and unboxing a product plays a crucial in crafting a unique customer experience. We do this with an unwavering commitment to protect our products and leave the world better than we found it. As a function of Packaging Product Design, the Packaging Lab Technician investigates new packaging materials and validates design performance throughout all stages of development across our entire product line up. We perform testing which simulates real-world package drops, environmental, transportation conditions for global distribution. Each test is followed by thorough inspection of performance using metrology equipment and visual inspections to detail findings. You will also take a leading role to help maintain a state of the art, multi-functional engineering lab. This role requires complex problem solving, outstanding attention to detail, and demonstrated success working in both autonomous and collaborative ways.
