As a member of a fast-paced multi-disciplinary team, you use your creativity and diverse range of engineering experience to explore solutions to a variety of engineering problems. As a mechanical engineer, you participate in the design, analysis, and prototyping of new concepts. You work in a manufacturing and product oriented development environment and collaborate with vendors and outside sources in order to see parts through to manufacture.

As a Mechanical Engineer, you'll be responsible for the mechanical design and development of technology that changes how users connect, explore, and interact with information and one another. Working closely with in-house team members and vendor partners, you will develop new products to be enjoyed by potentially millions of people. As a key member of the team, you will deep dive into challenging areas that include new sensor and actuator systems, and will play a critical role in architecting the product manufacturing pathway.

One of the driving forces of innovation at Google is Advanced Technologies and Projects (ATAP). ATAP is a fast-paced, solution-oriented group developing and executing projects at the point where emerging science/technology trends meet consumer needs, products and services.

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.
