Apple’s Operations team ensures that Apple’s ground-breaking designs become industry-leading products, delivered on time and on spec. This high-profile, highly respected organization stands at the junction of Apple’s product teams, the industries that supply core component technologies, and our manufacturing partners who help ensure that products such as iPad, iPhone and Mac are restocked just as fast as they fly off the shelves. We’re looking for high-energy people to support the procurement, manufacturing, fulfillment, and support of all things Apple.

MPMs are the crucial interface between Supply Demand Management, Global Supply Management, New Product and Sustaining Operations teams, and Contract Manufacturers. MPMs influence and run supply chain activities by working directly with these partners to optimize supply constraints in light of demand priorities, factory capacity, logistics requirements, quality challenges, and materials flow throughout Apple’s multi-tier supply chain.
