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 tolarge 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 an Imaging Algorithm Evaluation Engineer, you'll manage imaging algorithm performance testing and improve camera performance. You will optimize system development for efficient evaluation of imaging algorithm performance, developing input conditions, setting performance criteria and developing metrics. You'll focus on a range of algorithms spanning from computational imaging to subjective image enhancements.

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 withcomputing 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.


  • Work closely with firmware imaging pipeline to improve output of ISP.
  • Collaborate with software and algorithm Engineers to improve output of post-processing algorithms.
  • Work with UX teams on capture flows and user experience for the project.
