- Conceptualize, explore, and define new inferential and predictive location- and motion-based capabilities for Apple's platforms.

- Collect, curate, and analyze real-world data sets of varying size and complexity.

- Aggregate, filter, and cluster data on mobile devices, from a variety of local sensors: GPS, WiFi, accelerometer, and others.

- Design and implement algorithms, then integrate them into production code.

- Test your work. Collect metrics, and iterate. Dont forget to sweat the edge casesan issue that impacts 1% of a billion devices is a big issue.

A dedication to users privacy and security is core to how Apple does business. We want their devices to exhibit the high level of intelligence and proactivity that can only come from deep contextual understanding.
