Do you thrive on solving challenging problems? Are you ready to explore a new opportunity with a talented team? We are the hands-on technical team that carries the design of Apple products through the entire process, from early prototyping to mass production. By joining our team, you'll work side by side with your teammates inside Apple and at our partner facilities to define parts of the system in CAD, create drawings, and collaborate with vendors to produce these parts. You will assemble early prototypes, travel to China to support engineering builds, and solve problems on the assembly line. You have experience working in an organized and highly functional shop/lab space, hands-on experience working with shop tools and prototype fabrication techniques, and experience working on electro-mechanical devices. Core Responsibilities:

  • You will execute detailed design and fabrication procedures, accurately record and communicate progress and challenges that arise
  • Assemble mechanical and electrical test fixtures and setups to facilitate product testing
  • Maintain prototypes & perform failure analysis on electro-mechanical systems
