How do you verify an AI? Join a team of talented engineers who are defining verification and validation for safe autonomous technology.

The Special Projects Group at Apple is seeking an accomplished systems engineer to serve as an Senior Autonomy Integrity Engineer. In this role, you will help inform the design of complex hardware and software systems and develop methods and tools to enable their analysis and validation.

You will need to think broadly, connecting ideas across multiple technical domains: software design and development, machine learning, data science, control systems, and simulation - to name a few. You will be expected to view problems from multiple perspectives and at different levels of abstraction, and to tackle them from multiple directions. We expect successful candidates to demonstrate an ability to solve such problems efficiently, and to communicate about them effectively with a variety of audiences.

Key Qualifications

  • Experience with designing and delivering complex software systems, preferably in a safety-critical application.

  • Excellent C++ or Python skills and computer science fundamentals.

  • Experience using rigorous scientific methods for trade studies, testing, and problem solving.

  • A history of delivering results through the entire development lifecycle.


As an Autonomy Integrity Engineer, you will ensure that our autonomy meets our high standards for safety and performance.

  • You will identify target areas in which to drive improvement, develop tests and evaluations built on rigorous metrics, and deploy them at scale. You will design and implement methods for efficiently and robustly verifying a complex hardware and software system.

    You will develop and maintain the processes and tools for system validation. You will analyze cutting-edge autonomy to inform its design and implementation, working closely with cross-functional teams in the domains of machine learning, motion prediction, planning, and control.
