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 that goes into our cutting-edge data centers affecting millions of Google users.
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.
Architect and implement system solutions and employ data-driven decision-making to optimize system parameters such as efficiency, size and cost.
Design and implement proof of concept power solutions to target next generation designs. Author and own verification test protocols for these with support from vendor and internal test teams.
Work with hardware engineers to analyze power tree architecture and component selection trade-offs. Work cross-functionally across the organization to drive holistic solutions.
Communicate with leading power vendors and track vendor roadmaps. Collaborate and influence these partners to obtain robust solutions for Pixel hardware which support its feature roadmap.
Provide hand-off of new designs to execution team with design analysis, risk assessments and mitigation plans, technical support for production issue debug and resolution; perform rigorous design reviews with silicon vendors and internal engineering teams.
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
