Apple Engineering Program Manager Interview

Aug 17, 2018 10 Comments

A hiring manager at Apple recently contacted me for a position as Engineering Program Manager in his team. It went well and now I have another round.

Product: Apple Maps
Tools: Hadoop/Big Data

I clearly that I have no work experience in Hadoop/Big Data. He said he is willing to spend time in investing in training for the right candidate. I however told that I have read designing data intensive applications, Grokking the System Design interview etc.

What’s the interview process for this position? Please let me know if any material/recommendations to prepare.

TC: $140K

      I have been rejected at Google/FB/Amazon. This so not much options left. Ideally I would like to go for iPhone/Mac.

      Why should I not come? How is the work life balance? Risk of layoffs?

      OP, EPMs are numbers/keynote jockeys in this org - if that floats your boat, go for it

      How Much will be TC (Base/Bonus/RSU)? The position requires 7+ experience. I only care about the money. My current TC is only 140K.

      Figures why our EPMs suck so much - in that case, jump right in.
