Job Description

Do you have a passion for invention and self-challenge? Do you thrive on pushing the limits of what’s considered feasible? As part of our Battery Engineering group, you’ll help craft creative battery solutions that deliver more energy in smaller spaces than ever before! We work across subject areas to transform improved hardware elements into a single, integrated design. Join us, and you’ll help us innovate new battery technologies that continually outperform the previous iterations. By collaborating with other product development groups across Apple, we push the industry boundaries of what batteries can do and improve the product experience for our customers across the world! This position works within a multi-functional team supporting the entire Battery Department to identify trends, mine data, and help the battery team improve performance.

Key Qualifications

  • Proven working knowledge of statistical and data mining for causal analysis.

  • Strong expertise in processing and visualizing and analyzing big data as well as automating processes using a scripting language (Python, R, etc.).

  • Solid understanding of Python, JMP, SQL, and Tableau.

  • Experience in machine learning algorithms including ensemble-based approaches, probability networks, association rules, clustering, regression, and neural networks.

  • Strong problem-solving skills to address ad-hoc analytics requests with a sense of urgency by using engineering knowledge and analytics/ML skills based on different data sources, including time series dataset.

  • Experience in anomaly detection based on time series or other datasets.

  • Self-starter to interact with other functions, shown creativity to go beyond current tools to deliver the best solution to the problem.

  • Effective interpersonal skills to articulate difficult technical topics, especially causal inference, to collaborators including peer data scientists, design engineers, and business partners.

  • Strong analytics, statistical, and ML skills. Battery experience is preferred.
