Design Engineer, Content Design

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino) , California , United States



Posted: Jan 12, 2022

Role Number: 200316593

Imagine what you could make at Apple. Great ideas have a way of becoming innovative products, services, and customer experiences. Bring passion and dedication to your job and there's no telling what you could accomplish. We conceptualize, design and create the content experiences for some of Apple's most visible products. Your ideas can impact the way people consume media products, what they look and feel like, and how they're used by millions of people across the globe! We are seeking a design engineer to work with the team responsible for developing next generation visual effects for social video applications. We create and develop the tools - filters, stickers, titles and AR effects etc - that empower video creators. You will work with designers and engineers, coordinating with cross-functional teams to ensure that the final result is visually striking and exceeds Apple's high standards. Our ideal candidate is a problem solver who wants to influence how the software looks, as well as how it works. You can inspire creators and clearly articulate your vision. You follow technical discussions and have an understanding of the engineering behind software development. You can quickly learn new technology and processes and excel at building strong cross-functional relationships (operational, technical and creative) in a fast paced organization. This is far from your traditional position. You will be a liaison between design and engineering. You will translate designs into technical products for our video applications, such as iMovie and Clips etc. We support the addition of new content into our apps, as well as update existing content. You'll fix bugs, as well as test out new and rough internal tools and processes. You'll be exploring new and existing technology looking for creative ways to augment applications or come up with completely new ideas. You, in collaboration with other members of the team, will design, implement and iterate on new prototypes. We are looking for people who can not only dream up cool new ideas, but build interactive prototypes of those ideas. You aren't afraid of production work. We are a small team, and as such we wear a lot of hats. You obsess over small details, and make sure every pixel is in its place. You have experience with all file format types, image and video compression techniques, sizing graphics appropriately for screen versus print, and outstanding eye for color correction. Video production experience, animation, 3D Modeling and other motion based experience is a huge plus. You are able to communicate in a clear concise manner (whether it be email, voicemail or face-to-face), able to multi-task, can deal with tedious tasks and with multiple rounds edits. You are level-headed and keep your cool when deadlines or other pressures develop. You thrive in a fast-paced environment and keep many different projects and priorities organized and moving in the right direction. You can change directions easily and comfortably, even if that means starting over, or doing something completely different. The files created need to follow user interaction guidelines; you focus on the end-user experience. You take pride in all the work you build (from features in an app to a spreadsheet used internally). You document how things are done.

Key Qualifications

  • Proven ability to implement and produce high-quality motion graphic based, interactive deliverables either for web or in software development
  • Proficient in Digital, Social, and media formats and/or creation of in app content and top of class design benchmarks
  • A minimum of 8 years significant experience
  • Outstanding communication and presentation skills
  • Experience in a quick moving and cross-functional environment
  • Collaborative and team oriented approach
  • Experience in interactive / digital technologies
  • Experience in consumer video app development, web / realtime technologies a plus
  • Experience leading a high volume of creative asset types in parallel


This is a role that requires collaboration across multiple design, engineering, business, and production teams. This person will be responsible for implementing content in various formats for several video applications. A deep understanding of our Apps is very important. You may be asked to work on something that can't be done with current technology, so articulating what tools will be necessary to implement, produce and ship a product is vital. We often provide tech support for others on our team. We have to optimize content for memory and performance gains. Our perfect candidate has the ability to become an expert at any tool we may need to complete a task. Often these tools don't exist, so you'll draw on your experience and instinct to help define the tools based on the needs of the project. Expert with Mac OS, Adobe Photoshop, iWork suite (Keynote, Pages and Numbers). Sketch, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Motion, Compressor, Cinema 4D, Maya, Compositing, 3D Modeling, Rigging, and knowledge of iBooks Author. Experience in software, web and or game development is a must. You should be experienced with Xcode, terminal, SVN/GIT, doing local builds, writing bugs, etc. Scripting for automation experience is a desirable skill to have.

  • - 8+ years relevant design or creative leadership experience required; bonus for experience with publishing, magazines, or content creation/delivery
