A group of Apple software engineers discuss a project in a conference room

Apple engineers have always focused on one person when they build software — the person who will use it. Working with them, you’ll see why every Apple product and service feels intuitive and simple, and why every aspect of this group’s work is built around a respect for the customer’s needs.

As a manager for the core Bluetooth team in the Wireless Software Engineering group, Jason leads a team that creates and integrates Bluetooth technology into a wide array of Apple products. They were pioneers in designing the first Mac with totally wireless input devices, and they have built innovative cross-product features such as Handoff and Instant Hotspot. More recently, his team was intimately involved in the creation of AirPods. “Every project is a chance to improve on what we’ve already learned. To see all the cross-functional work, the relationships we’ve forged, and the software, firmware, and tools we’ve written come together in one product makes me incredibly proud.”

Core Operating Systems

The operating system is what makes an Apple product an Apple product. When you’re on the team that forms the core of that personality, you help ensure it’s inseparable from the device’s identity as a whole. You can do that here because Apple has always had a fully integrated operating system, combining hardware, software, and applications. As part of this group, you’ll develop technologies like iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS and work with other teams to build the world’s most collaborative products. Areas of work include Kernel, Networking, File Systems, Sensors, and Transports.
