Role Number:200464384

The AIML Integration and Delivery team is looking for exceptional leaders who are excited about leading a team to operate and automate the delivery of new experiences on Siri.

We are working to take future releases of Siri to the next level. As an organization, we are responsible for running release management and deploying all Siri server and client code, as well as machine learning models for Siri that affect 1 billion+ customers. If you are excited about the challenges of making development and releases more efficient while every part of the system is advancing, come help us solve these problems and be part of improving efficiency across the Siri and AIML organization!

In this role, you will lead a distributed team playing a part in ensuring the quality and delivery of groundbreaking technology for large-scale systems, natural language, big data, and artificial intelligence to end users. You will be leading conversations with various multi-functional teams of engineering and project management. You will lead them to identify issues and root causes, fix and prevent build and infrastructure failures, ensure frictionless delivery of features, and make the lives of our AIML organization better.

Key Qualifications

  • 6+ years in roles as DevOps, SRE and at least 2 years leading an engineering team or operations team
  • Leadership skills such as making presentations to leadership, running war rooms, inspiring teams, and influencing the organization to improve quality and coding best practices
  • Have a deep understanding of release engineering, branching and software configuration management
  • Experience working with engineering and project management teams
  • Experience in troubleshooting large distributed applications or mobile client applications
  • Track record of empowering your team to deliver results independently as part of a geographically diverse team
  • Troubleshooting and debugging skills: Analyze and investigate test failures, errors, infrastructure and build issues


You will be tasked with streamlining build and deployment processes for many interdependent Siri projects. You will be a part of a fast-paced environment with constantly evolving priorities, collaborating with engineers and data scientists. You will help design CI systems to optimize various projects' build, test, and deployment cycle times. This is not a team of strict software engineers but it requires a good engineering background. Your team will be split across Build/CI (50%), DevOps (40%), and Automation (10%).

Your strategic goals will be to lead the team that automates operational tasks required to run the CI pipeline for Siri code, as well as define new processes that fill process and technology gaps that you and your team identify. You will start by learning to use the tools to pre-validate build-time issues, and getting a deep understanding of Apple's internal tools and processes. In the following year, you will have a solid foundation that defines the processes and ensures the successful operations of a CI solution that has improved Siri engineers’ experience.

Education & Experience

Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, a related field, or equivalent work experience is required.
