Apple Media Products Engineering – Software Engineer – Java/Scala Serverside 577 views

The Apple Media Products Engineering team is one of the most exciting examples of Apple’s long-held passion for combining art and technology. These are the people who power the App Store, Apple TV, Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple Books. And they do it on a massive scale, meeting Apple’s high expectations with high performance to deliver a huge variety of entertainment in over 35 languages to more than 150 countries.

These engineers build secure, end-to-end solutions. They develop the custom software used to process all the creative work, the tools that providers use to deliver that media, all the server-side systems, and the APIs for many Apple services.

Thanks to Apple’s unique integration of hardware, software, and services, engineers here partner to get behind a single unified vision. That vision always includes a deep commitment to strengthening Apple’s privacy policy, one of Apple’s core values. Although services are a bigger part of Apple’s business than ever before, these teams remain small, nimble, and cross-functional, offering greater exposure to the array of opportunities here.

Key Qualifications:

Proven programming experience with an object-oriented programming language (Java or Scala preferred)

Familiarity with modern architectures, such as micro-services or server-less computing

Proficiency in modern software engineering techniques and best practices

Deep knowledge of data structures, algorithms, concurrency, and design patterns

Experience building loosely coupled, eventually consistent distributed systems

Exposure to frameworks for network applications (Netty, Hystrix, Jersey, RESTEasy, DropWizard, or similar)

Familiarity with relational databases and NoSQL stores (Cassandra, Voldemort, DynamoDB, Bigtable, or similar)

Be an advocate and driver for test automation and good software engineering practices

Knowledge of test automation frameworks (JUnit, JMock, Mockito, REST Assured, ScalaTest, or similar)

Critical thinking and curiosity-driven, problem-solving attitude and attention to detail

Interest and ability to pick up new technologies quickly
