At Apple, we work every single day to build products that enrich peoples lives. Our Advertising Platforms group makes it possible for people around the world to easily access informative and visionary content on their devices while helping publishers and developers promote and monetize their work. Our technology and services power advertising in Apple News and Search Ads in App Store. Our platforms are highly-performant, deployed at scale, and setting new standards for enabling effective advertising while protecting user privacy. Our auctions power rapidly growing marketplaces and are critical to the health and diversity of our ecosystem.
We are looking for an ambitious individual who can thrive in an Agile environment. You will develop and apply advanced techniques and algorithms to improve an ad network. Youll be developing and implementing new optimization, budget pacing, pricing, and winner selection algorithms. The position also involves developing a keen understanding of the ad network behavior; detecting meaningful data patterns; assuring the integrity and breadth of the data; measuring user, campaign, and app performance; and finally analyzing the results of extremely large-scale experiments. The successful candidate will also apply advanced game theory, auction theory, and ML techniques for designing pricing/auction strategies, and ranking algorithms.
You will have the opportunity to work on auctions that occur millions of times a day, which have strong requirements for both technical SLA performance and delivering a fair and vibrant marketplace for discovery. We operate a platform with extreme scale requirements and value. You will, in partnership with our product management colleagues, propose, design and analyze new features and algorithms to improve the performance of our auctions. You will work closely with operational teams on deployment, monitoring, management concerns. You will participate and lead Apple internal Data Science & Machine learning interest groups, meet ups, and conferences. You will join a team passionate about data privacy, fairness, and trust, with profound responsibility to ensure those things, while protecting the value our customers and developers count on from our advertising products for.
