As an Engineer on the AMP Media Processing team, you'll be working on the foundation that underpins all of Apple's media use-cases. This role has a particular focus on developing robust, highly available applications for orchestration and control of live video stream encoding for sports programming. We handle the entire media life cycle, from media creation to international scheduling to developing custom media formats. As a member of our team, you will partner with multiple engineering teams, business operations, technical operations, 3rd party vendors, and sometimes the open-source community. You will help develop the next generation of systems and infrastructure to help divide and conquer the enormous amount of video, audio, and the millions of other media types we process every single day. You should have an eye for reusability, reliability, refactoring, higher level abstractions, and building frameworks that benefit not only our team but other teams as well. Your skills should be motivated by a passion and a deep curiosity to delve into the realm of processing video and audio to accelerate the rate at which we can improve our products. We’re looking for a team member whose "people skills" complement their technical skills. You should be confident in articulating a well thought out design, thoughtfully providing regular code reviews, constructively giving and receiving peer feedback, and coordinating communication with a geographically diverse team. This is a rare opportunity to have a direct impact on such a variety of Apple's Services. If this sounds like you, join our team!
