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 Embedded Software 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 that goes into our 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.

In this role, you will formulate software test infrastructure for SoCs, write and execute tests both functionally and over parametric conditions, debug discovered issues in conjunction with design and verification teams, optimize performance and power of the silicon modes, and transfer silicon-level results to software development, system validation, and volume manufacturing teams. You will enable the development of emulation tests that are run/regressed then executed across silicon verification.

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our team combines the best of Google AI, Software, and Hardware to create radically helpful experiences. We research, design, and develop new technologies and hardware to make computing faster, seamless, and more powerful. We aim to make people's lives better through technology.

Minimum qualifications:

- Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or equivalent practical experience.

- 10 years of experience in silicon validation software stacks or related embedded software infrastructure.

- Experience writing firmware for SoC boot and functional test, including bare-metal and Linux driver development.

- Experience with Embedded C, scripting (Python, Perl, Bash), and Linux debug (gbd/adb) languages.

Preferred qualifications:

- Master's degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or equivalent practical experience.

- Experience working cross-functionally with Hardware and Software teams for silicon emulation, bring-up, validation, and characterization.

- Familiarity with the software paradigms for customizing, verifying, and validating ASIC IP, running over hardware debug standards such as JTAG/SWD, UART, SPI, and I2C.

- Write and verify SoC-level validation tests on emulation hardware pre-silicon and then on all maturity of silicon samples.

- Develop software-based test and debug infrastructure to carry out tests, including command-line register interface, processor trace/debug tools, automation scripting, etc.

- Debug functional tests and extend to full silicon PVT characterization, including power/performance validation.

- Ensure tests are transferred to the platform driver, system-level test, and volume manufacturing teams, serving either as direct input to or reference for their implementations.

About the company

Google is not a conventional company, and we don't intend to become one. True, we share attributes with the world's most successful organizations - a focus on innovation and smart business practices comes to mind - but even as we continue to grow, we're committed to retaining a small-company feel. At Google, we know that every employee has something important to say, and that every employee is integral to our success.

We provide individually-tailored compensation packages that can be comprised of competitive salary, bonus, and equity components, along with the opportunity to earn further financial bonuses and rewards. Googlers thrive in small, focused teams and high-energy environments, believe in the ability of technology to change the world, and are as passionate
