every kind of individual: artists and designers, engineers and scientists, thinkers and doers. Together we create
things and experiences people once couldn’t have imagined — and now can’t imagine living without. So if
you’re excited by the idea of making a real impact, a career with Apple might be your dream job. Just be
ready to dream big.
Apple is looking for a Mechanical Design Engineer to be part of Apple’s Product Design Group.
The group is involved in all iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac and iPad products from early concept generation
through product end of life. The engineer will be based in Shanghai or Shenzhen in China.
The right individual will likely have many years of product design and manufacturing experience and will
have shipped multiple products in a lead or principle engineer role. The person will have wide technical
breadth as well as technical depth in at least a few key areas listed below. We are looking for someone who is
passionate about engineering and thrives on innovation.
The person should be excited to push the envelope on what is possible. We are looking for someone who
has a broad range of experience that can be applied to a wide range of problems, but that also has the tech-
nical capability to be able to dive deep into a problem with a group of experts.
The role will require the ability to handle multiple projects simultaneously with demanding schedule re-
quirements across a large cross functional team. A proven ability to deliver solid design solutions while bal-
ancing multiple priorities is key. Experience closely working with suppliers is important as well. The engineer
in this role will be very comfortable with applying scientific method and have be able to apply or create the
process through which they can solve complex problems.
A bachelors degree in mechanical engineering is required. MS or Phd is a plus.
Engineering degree (Mechanical / Aerospace / Mechatronics) with relevant professional experience
Working knowledge of 3D CAD modeling systems and workflow, UG NX preferred
Expert knowledge of drafting best practices and the application of GD&T principles
A thorough understanding of stress-strain relationships, static mechanics (determinate and indeterminate
A thorough understanding of kinematics and mechanism design
A thorough understanding of metal and plastic materials science, tribology and wear principles highly de-
Engineering expertise in high volume electro-mechanical PCBA and product level fixture design, including
structures, sheet metal, plastics, fixture/mechanism design, robotics, probe design, plating materials and
thermal design is a plus
A thorough understanding of standard manufacturing processes, especially machining processes
Working knowledge of FEA (stress analysis) highly desirable, ANSYS preferred
Working understanding of plastic part design, molded part design highly desirable
Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
Project and product management experience strongly preferred
Self-driven with the desire and ability to become an integral part of Apple’s talented, highly creative and
fast paced engineering team
Flexibility and comfort working in a quickly changing environment.
Working knowledge of finite element analysis theory and ability to use statistical tools and techniques.
Experience in Design for Manufacturability (DFM), and Design for Assembly (DFA), statistical tolerance
analysis techniques, functional dimensioning, and geometric tolerancing.
Handheld/portable device experience.
Integration of wireless antenna (GSM, GPS, Wifi) into mechanical enclosures a big plus
Integration of electrical subsystems (display, microphone, speaker, receiver, camera)
Unigraphics NX or Pro-engineer fluency desirable.
