Are you a big-picture problem solver who loves setting ambitious goals? Do you have a passion for understanding how each line of code affects all the others? In the Core Operating Systems group, youll ensure the OS is inseparable from each devices identity as a whole. Thats because this group is committed to building fully integrated operating systems that combine hardware, software, and apps into a single Apple experience. Your dedication to cross-disciplinary collaboration will help develop groundbreaking technologies, such as iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. By crafting these distinct, holistic user experiences, youll continue to uphold and advance the excellence people expect from Apple devices! The Kernel & Runtime team within Apple's Core OS organization is responsible for delivery of a high-quality and performant kernel and low-level runtime into just about every one of Apples products. Our software runs on your wrist as part of watchOS; in your pocket with iOS; on your desk in macOS; in your living room with tvOS; on the devices owned by your friends and family; and hundreds of millions of devices beyond those. This position requires a solid understanding of operating systems fundamentals, including kernel design and implementation. We deal in all of the traditional kernel subsystems, e.g. IPC, process fork/exec, virtual memory, scheduling, etc, and also serve as expert system sleuths up and down the entire Apple stack. Our company is one of the last vertically integrated systems shops remaining, and as such our engineers have the unique opportunity to roam the system freely, from iOS silicon design all the way up to Apps and the cloud.- Work with a highly skilled engineering team to design and implement new features and maintain kernel and runtime technologies - Participation in all phases of software development cycle: from problem definition and design, through implementation, debugging and testing- Diagnose and resolve customer-reported issue- Work with cross functional teams to support developer and product requirements
