Apple is known for its innovation and when something gets in the way of that then the Application Engineering Team is there to remove those roadblocks. You will need to listen to and translate inner team requirements into high-level technical specifications, design, and often develop recommended solutions. Solutions can range from as simple as helping a team find the correct documentation to working with the team to design and architect large, complex solutions that could span systems across Apple. All while making Apple more secure and work more effectively. You will not be part of just a single development team within Crypto Services but you will need to be able to develop and contribute code changes and features to any of the services or products offered by Crypto Services. To do this you will need to align your change with that product's Software Engineering team’s requirements and exceptions. Being able to quickly pick up and develop on multiple codebases is a must to be successful in the role. With your exposure to such a wide array of external teams using Crypto Services products, you will be in a unique position to help guide the direction of Crypto Services. You will need to actively collect data, metrics and other supporting sources to present to management in Crypto Services to help plan and Roadmap, helping craft the future of the team. You will also need to develop and build tooling, integrations, and applications to unblock internal teams and achieve new product integrations for Crypto Services. As part of this, you will need to work closely with teams to evangelize offerings from Crypto Services and seek out new partnerships. This can be in the form of 1:1 meetings to presenting at some of the larger company wide conferences within Apple.
