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.

As a Chip Package Technologist in the chip implementation team, you will work on package development for broad chip package technologies. You will be directing all technical aspects of package design, assembly process, package materials and reliability tests. You will perform early feasibility studies using test vehicles, create specifications, and provide guidance for thermal, mechanical, electrical and package substrate design. Your job function also involves leading package design reviews, and solving all technical issues associated with package reliability, process, thermal and electrical issues.

You will also work closely with multi-functional cross-teams from different organizations, along with various vendors, in order to incorporate their inputs into package development and to successfully roll out for production.

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.
