We are the hands-on group that carries the design of Apple products through the entire process, from early prototyping to mass production. Our team is expected to set an example of technical excellence, which is why we obsess over the details. We also care deeply about taking a collaborative approach, where all inputs are heard, to best ensure our designs are inclusive of all of our potential users. That's how we make the best consumer electronics products in the world. Travel will be 10-25% (pending removal of COVID-19 travel limitations) and the team is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
