The Apple Media Products (AMP) organization is an exciting environment with many opportunities for learning and development. With customers in hundreds of countries, we are a thriving marketplace for music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, apps, books, games, fitness and more. In this specific role, we're looking for an Engineering Program Manager (EPM) to drive initiatives related to Fitness+, specifically focusing on our internal operations tools & growth initiatives. EPM's at AMP are responsible for shipping new features. We're looking for people with proven track records of shipping complex, customer-facing products under demanding timelines, with bonus points for new product introductions. This is a hands-on position where the EPM will be involved in requirements analysis, functional and technical design discussions, engineering implementation, QA testing, proof-of-concept, working with partners, and more. Ultimately, you are responsible for shipping the code which millions of customers will use. AMP EPM's take responsibility, feeling a personal stake in the product they ship. They must communicate responsibilities and scope clearly, manage conflict, and thrive in uncertainty while striving to find solutions. They must build strong relationships across the entire organization, especially with Senior Directors & VP's, as they're frequently responsible for executive presentations. Autonomy is critical; EPM's only receive consultative direction from leadership and must "figure it out" themselves. Multi-tasking and concise documentation are core competencies used every day. - Drive and ship many aspects of large, cross-functional projects related to Fitness+. - Oversee all aspects of multiple concurrent features including scope, requirements, timelines, and resource allocation. - Define business, functional, and reporting requirements (often writing them yourself). - Take a role in improving how features are built and executed on the AMP team. - Own overall cross-functional schedules, including AMP development, other Apple groups (client teams, device teams, other business teams), and backend reporting systems. - Collaborate with IS&T, Legal, Finance, Design, Ops, and other organizations both inside and outside of Apple to develop solutions for partnerships, promotions and other new business. - Experience with transactional systems, pricing and international currencies is a plus but not required. - Experience with music rights management also a plus.
