The Networking team creates foundational technologies that enable Apple products to communicate with each other and the rest of the world reliably, efficiently, securely, and privately. The team achieves this through invention and implementation of new technologies, collaboration inside and outside of Apple, and standardization across the industry. You, as a talented and energetic software engineer will join our Networking Infrastructure team.

The ideal candidate should posses an excellent conceptual understanding of networking stack internals and their interactions within the Operating System, both towards applications as well as network device drivers. Good working knowledge of TCP/IP and system level software design and implementation experience is also essential. The position will require the right candidate to determine the appropriate compromise between several competing factors such as performance (throughput and latency), energy efficiency (CPU and memory usage), ease of use and security.


The candidate needs to be able to work in a fast paced environment, operate gracefully under stress, handle multiple assignments in parallel, and be self driven to be effective in an environment with little overhead. The candidate also needs to show initiative, be able to take ownership of a problem area, and demonstrate an ability to understand the role of the group's technology in the larger context of the product and network environment.
