Pro Workflow Systems Architect - 113283468


Changing the world is all in a day's work at Apple. If you love innovation, here's your chance to make a career of it. You'll work hard. But the job comes with more than a few perks.

The Pro Workflow Systems Architect will be responsible for evaluating the performance and efficiency of hardware, software and system options for implementation across the product line of future designs being considered for the Mac.

This will include, but is not limited to, the evaluation of system and device level characteristics from low level device metrics (e.g. throughput, latency, caching/paging behaviors, power/efficiency, etc.) in the presence of operating systems, compiler, power management, and software interactions that ultimately determine the user’s experience on a Mac. The architect will identify performance bottlenecks, inefficiencies, and architectural improvement areas in hardware and software, and work with internal teams and external vendors on addressing them.

The job will entail close interaction with in-house and third party software development groups as well as hardware/silicon vendors. The architect will be responsible for clear and concise reporting of performance, efficiency, architecture, micro-architecture, and implementation analysis of both hardware and software to engineering teams as well as upper management.

Key Qualifications:
•Minimum 7+ years of experience in computer hardware architecture and development.
•Deep knowledge of computer architecture including CPU, GPU and systems level.
•Knowledge of operating system fundamentals, driver software and software development.
•Experience with Performance analysis, optimization and debug is very desirable
•Knowledge of graphics API’s, and driver software is very desirable
•Experience with professional VFX, 3D animation, or Video Editing Software a plus

This architecture position requires a deep, thorough, and broad working knowledge of modern computer hardware architectures, as well as general software, operating system, and driver knowledge. Good communication, teamwork, and organizational skills are a must. The key to this position will be the ability to do deep architectural analysis and leverage that into concise optimization/improvement efforts communicated effectively across management, internal development teams, and our external vendors.


MS/PhD in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science or similar degree required.
