Recruiter contacted for apple hardware products. Anyone at Apple know what the types of duties are for Engineering Project Manager? Is this a Product/Program/Project Manager role?
Also what’s Compensation for this type of position in Bay Area? Thanks
It’s a lot of organizing meetings, figuring out who the right stakeholders are in your group to work on problems, reporting up to management the status of your project, working with vendors and contract manufacturers to build hardware, driving engineers to finish tasks, creating schedules and budgets, could be some light technical work supporting engineers depending on the group.
EPM is a lot of people skills and politics and having familiarity with the technical tasks being done when working with technical engineers. You’re typically the face of the program, get copied on all the emails, and managers and execs hear from you and come to you when shit hits the fan.
