Weekly Hours: 40

Role Number:200246567

The Internationalization team’s mission is to make Apple’s software accessible to everyone, no matter where in the world they may be. We are looking for someone who is passionate about the world’s languages and cultures as well as shipping world-class software. One of the team’s main focuses is to make the input experience—using keyboard, dictation, Apple Pencil, and other input methods—more inclusive for everyone, regardless of what languages they use or what their background is, so that anyone in the world can use their own language—and emojis!—to send a message on their iPhone. In addition to text input, the team is also responsible for internationalization frameworks—including Open Source projects like ICU & CLDR—that power the entire operating system and enable both Apple and third-party developers to localize their apps. Internationalization team members also represent Apple at the Unicode Consortium and are vocal advocates for better language support and for making emojis more inclusive.
