About the job
Our computational challenges are so big, complex and unique we can't just purchase off-the-shelf hardware, we've got to make it ourselves. Your team designs and builds the hardware, software and networking technologies that power all of Google's services. As a Hardware Engineer, you design and build the systems that are the heart of the world's largest and most powerful computing infrastructure. You develop from the lowest levels of circuit design to large system design and see those systems all the way through to high volume manufacturing. Your work has the potential to shape the machinery. cutting-edge data centers affecting millions of Google users.
With your technical expertise, you lead projects in multiple areas of expertise (i.e., engineering domains or systems) within a data center facility, including construction and equipment installation/troubleshooting/debugging with vendors.
As a Radio Frequency (RF) Hardware Engineer, you will be part of a design team, building Consumer Electronics (CE) products in emerging areas from product concept to mass production. With a background in RF systems design and experience in building and shipping CE products, you will be working with cross-functional team on defining overall product architecture to achieve best RF performance.
Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our Hardware team researches, designs, and develops new technologies and hardware to make our user's interaction with computing faster, more powerful, and seamless. Whether finding new ways to capture and sense the world around us, advancing form factors, or improving interaction methods, our Hardware team is making people's lives better through technology.
Define architecture, specification, design and test boards for innovative consumer electronics devices.
Design and optimize RF system solutions, including cellular technologies LTE, UMTS, CDMA, GSM, WLAN, BT, and GPS.
Design for volume manufacturing and support factory engineers from prototyping to product launch.
Manage PCB design for optimal RF performance.
Work with component vendors and partners to develop the RF frontend.
About the company
Google is not a conventional company, and we don't intend to become one.
