Apple’s Motion Sensing Hardware team plays a key part in the development and integration of motion sensors for Apple’s consumer electronics products including iPad, iPhone, Watch, and Apple Vision Pro, providing Apple customers with the best user-experience in the industry. This team leads the definition and integration of innovative sensing technologies such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, pressure sensors, and magnetometers while working with world leading suppliers and multi-functional system teams at Apple.

For this role we’re looking for a high-energy, self motivated engineering program manager (EPM) to work with the engineers on motion sensors for next generation Vision (AR/VR) products. As the EPM you will be responsible for and coordinate the team’s activities towards specifying, developing, characterizing, integrating, and validating motion sensing systems at module and system level for Apple Vision products as well as facilitating the top level feature integration and multi-functional communications with the Vision Products Team (VPG).

The Motion Sensing Hardware Team is a part of Apple Hardware Technologies team, featuring a collaborative environment with creative, hard-working people which works closely with other multi-functional teams across Apple. This team defines and integrates (mainly MEMS based) magnetic, piezo and capacitive sensors across a variety of Apple products. Engineering excellence, technical curiosity, innovation and thoroughness are expected and encouraged. Come, join us in moving the needle and crafting solutions the world doesn’t know of yet!
