Apple Siri Team

Amazon thus

Any opinions about this team? I've had recruiters coming out of my ears from there. Same thing happened with Amazon and that was a bad experience.

Apparently it's a new team to try to jumpstart Siri's heart.

    if you can make it better, dont let them know, they think siri is the best in the world, dont mention any negative siri experience during interview, otherwise they reject you due to culture no fit.... lol..

      Had a very similar experience on a certain terrible browser that Microsoft makes. It's really sad when teams get defensive about their products.

    Has an on-site , and concur . Tech I passed but since I offered what I felt was constructive criticism of the product was rejected. Unfortunately my take away is you need to pretend to be obsessed with Apple and it being flawless and use the word gorgeous to get hired there. So fake it till you make it I was told by a friend who works there

      I think your rejection has something to do with your communication skills. From what I can gather from your post, you can barely form sentences properly. Please take this as “constructive criticism”.

      I don’t put the same effort into typing in my phone as I communicate in real life, and also given the iPhone auto complete is a bit lacking :) are you really judging someone’s overall comments based on grammar, that’s a first on the internet :) please take this as constructive, Apple doesn’t take criticism well. I have many friends at Apple who concur and it frustrates them too

      I don’t think that the same person wrote the post as well as the previous comment. However, as I said, please take it as constructive criticism. Firstly, I wasn’t judging you when I said that you can barely form sentences properly. In fact, its not my place to judge anyone based on their english grammar skills being a non-native speaker myself. Secondly, the reason why I mentioned it was so you put some effort into improving your communication skills a little bit. From what I could gather from your post, it didn’t look like the problem was iPhone’s autocomplete.

    Stay away. The most ambiguous team I know at Apple. Right hand does not know what left hand team is doing.
    No wonder Siri is so far behind compare to competitors

      That's what I thought. And it seems everyone needs to be a "deep learning expert."

      Haha yet no one really is. The team has no long term vision. Everyone is too busy doing day to day tasks and making siri not useful at all

      No idea. Sounds like some kind of NLP team.

      Hmm, not sure what team that is. But Siri is a fun place to work and there are a lot of interesting things happening. Maybe you can help get a jump start!

    The question I would ask is if Siri is so amazing why did almost all the founders and original folks leave to form Viv
