Google engineers develop the next-generation technologies that change how users connect, explore, and interact with information and one another. As a member of an extraordinarily creative, motivated and talented team, you develop new products that are used by millions of people. We need our engineers to be versatile and passionate to tackle new problems as we continue to push technology forward. If you get excited about building new things and aren't daunted by the challenge of building something from scratch, then our team might be your next career step.

You will develop new algorithms and hardware architectures for hardware-accelerated image and video processing applications. You will work on topics that span areas of image processing, digital imaging, computer vision, computational photography, and machine intelligence. You will invent new algorithms, develop architectural C-models and specify architectures for future generation products. You will collaborate with Software/Hardware architects to explore build and test the best hardware architectures to process images and videos for applications including digitalphotography and machine intelligence.

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.
