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.

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.

Starting at concept creation, the Google Hardware team architects, designs, develops, validates and continues to support the product through end of life. Our Hardware Design Engineers are an integral part of the entire process, especially involved in the system design, factory bring up and test/validation cycles of the project. As a Hardware System Integrator, you will develop new products that are used by millions of people.

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our Devices & Services team combines the best of Google AI, Software, and Hardware to create radically helpful experiences for users. We research, design, and develop new technologies and hardware to make our user's interaction with computing faster, seamless, and more powerful. Whether finding new ways to capture and sense the world around us, advancing form factors, or improving interaction methods, the Devices & Services team is making people's lives better through technology.


  • Design Google's future products by owning architecture selection, electrical design and validation.
  • Work with all cross-functional teams (software, product design, industrial design, program management, operations, finance, etc.) to deliver a successful product to market.
  • Plan and lead validation of your designs: lead complete functional verification, signal characterization, power modeling/test, and system coexistence testing.
  • Bring your design to mass production by setting factory test requirements, assisting in software bring up, traveling on-site to the manufacturer to ensure the design is built and tested successfully.
  • Prepare for the future: work with and manage suppliers/manufacturing partners to establish mutually beneficial relationships for future product designs.
