Imagine what you could do at Apple! Everyday, new ideas have a way of becoming extraordinary products, services, and customer experiences very quickly. Do you bring passion and dedication to your job? If so, we are looking for individuals like you. The Interactive Media Group (IMG) is at the center of audio, video and graphics support in Apple’s innovative products, including the HomePod, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Apple TV. IMG’s Audio team provides the audio foundation for various high profile features like Spatial Audio, Siri, FaceTime and media capture and playback. As part of the accessories team, your focus would be on the entire AirPods line, including AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, as well as Beats products

As a firmware engineer working on AirPods and Beats products, you will ensure that users hear their music the way the artist intended, hold phone conversations with maximal clarity and can interact with Siri reliably. A user may want to block the world out and just turn on ANC. You will make that happen too. Firmware engineers occupy the intersection of algorithms, operating systems, acoustics and hardware. You will interact with all of these teams and more to make sure users’ audio experiences enrich their lives both in ways familiar to Apple customers and in ways fresh from Apple's newest innovations. Your intense curiosity about how things work and ability to conceptualize, design and write audio software for embedded platforms will be essential in enabling and delivering these audio experiences.
