Job Summary

iCloud is an exciting environment and a fast-paced development organization. We're looking for good program managers to drive programs in the mail, Push, and CloudKit programs. Program managers on the iCloud team are responsible for launching features for our external developers and customers. We're looking for people with proven track records of shipping complex programs under demanding timelines. This is a hands-on position where the program manager will be involved in requirements analysis, functional and technical design discussions, testing, proof-of-concept, working with partners, planning, execution, delivery, and more. This is not a task-based job; you will be responsible for successful outcomes and delivery. Strong fundamentals are a must, but you have more. You take responsibility; you feel a personal stake in the features you ship; you communicate responsibilities and scope clearly; you value integrity; you manage conflict; you need to know how things work; you work for the success of the entire PM team; you thrive in uncertainty and strive to bring order to it; you have deep wisdom and judgement; you keep your eye on the ball; you build strong relationships; you are aware of politics but do not get mired in them; you are constantly looking to improve yourself and your team; and you ship code which millions of customers will rely on.
