Google's custom-designed equipment makes up one of the largest and most powerful computing infrastructures in the world. The Manufacturing Operations team is responsible for providing the manufacturing capability to deliver this state-of-the-art physical infrastructure. As a Manufacturing Engineer, you evaluate the product designs and create the processes, tools and procedures behind Google’s powerful search technology. When vendors build parts for our infrastructure, you’re right there alongside ensuring manufacturing processes are repeatable and controlled. You collaborate with Commodity Managers and Design Engineers to determine Google’s infrastructure needs and product specifications. Your work ensures the various pieces of Google’s infrastructure fit together perfectly and keep our systems humming along smoothly for a seamless user experience.
The Technology Infrastructure Data Center Operations team is responsible for providing the manufacturing capability to deliver state-of-the-art physical infrastructure. Quality and Reliability are the foundational cornerstones of everything we do. As a Reliability Engineer, you will work alongside Engineering teams to ensure we design products with reliability designed and built in. You will also collaborate with partners to determine Google’s infrastructure needs and product specifications, ensuring the various pieces of Google’s infrastructure fit together perfectly.
In this role, you will lead new product introduction (NPI) product reliability related activities between our Engineering teams, Contract Manufacturers (CM), and suppliers, identifying and managing risks and clearly communicating project deliverables and status to stakeholders. You will evaluate product designs and create processes, tools, and procedures to drive product development and manufacturing in a fast-paced environment while focusing on the root cause.
Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio possible. We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We're always on call to keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
Set the proper reliability plans, goals, and priorities and put risk mitigation plans in place during NPI, providing design input to improve cloud product reliability.
Identify critical failure modes to influence and enable a better design and de-risk the product at an early stage of development.
Define and drive reliability test plans and collect/analyze/synthesize test data to enable evaluation, implementation, and verification of the design reliability across multiple functional teams.
Extract root causes from symptoms, create actionable insights from test and FA data.
Maintain relationships with outside testing labs and cross-functional internal groups, as well as Contract Manufacturer (CM) partners, while developing in-house test and qualification capabilities where needed.
