Two million U.S. jobs.
And counting.

The numbers tell the story. Apple is one of the biggest job creators in the United States, responsible for two million jobs in all 50 states. Last year, we spent over $50 billion with more than 9,000 U.S. suppliers and manufacturers. Since we launched the App Store in 2008, U.S. developers have earned over $16 billion in App Store sales worldwide. And we’re just getting started.

Our Apple employees.

Apple jobs span a wide range of roles — designers, scientists, construction, manufacturing, retail, customer support, marketing, hardware and software engineers — and their ranks continue to grow at unprecedented rates. Apple tech support call centers serve our North American customers with 13,000 representatives across the United States. And unlike with many companies, both full- and part-time employees are eligible for such benefits as health insurance, matching retirement contributions, and an employee stock purchase plan.

Key U.S. Investment Projects

Cupertino, California

Our new headquarters is nearing completion. We’ve taken nearly 100 acres of asphalt and concrete and turned them into a landscape of 9,000 trees, walking paths, and grasslands. Designed to inspire creativity and collaboration, Apple Park is one of the largest construction projects in the world, and will support thousands of jobs in the local area when completed.

Austin, Texas

Austin is home to over 6,000 employees, and in the last year we’ve opened two new campuses as we plan for additional growth.

Mesa, Arizona

We’re investing billions of dollars to expand our Mesa facility into a global command center. When completed, the Mesa center will serve as a key logistics and operations hub, supporting all of our data centers around the world.

Maiden, North Carolina

We’re doubling the size and capacity of our Maiden data center, and adding five new solar projects to increase its production of on-site clean energy to 87 megawatts.

Prineville, Oregon

Since we first opened this data center in 2013, we’ve more than doubled its size. We’re also investing in local infrastructure and installing innovative micro-hydro generation systems to help power the data center with clean, renewable energy.

Reno, Nevada

As we expand our Nevada data center, we’re working with NV Energy on our largest solar investment to date, which will produce 270 megawatts of clean power.
