Less than 5 years experience • Information Services
Google's software engineers develop the next-generation technologies that change how millions of users connect, explore, and interact with information and one another. Our ambitions reach far beyond just Search. Our products need to handle information at the scale of the web. We're looking for ideas from every area of computer science, including information retrieval, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking, security, data compression, and user interface design; the list goes on and is growing every day. As a Software Engineer, you work on a small team and can switch teams and projects as our fast-paced business grows and evolves. We need our engineers to be versatile and passionate to handle new problems as we continue to push technology forward.
Google Cloud Platform allows developers to build, host, store and deploy applications or websites on Google's highly-scalable and reliable infrastructure for web, mobile and backend solutions. We are looking for visionary Software Engineers who see the big picture of where cloud computing is headed and want to be at the forefront of a new era of computing. You will play a critical role in this endeavor. As a Software Engineer, you will have the opportunity to shape and deliver Google Cloud Platform products including: App Engine, Compute Engine, Cloud Storage, Big Data, Deployment Manager, Services and more. You will quickly ramp up as a subject matter expert for the Google Cloud Platform and become the go-to person for designing elegant cloud-based solutions. You will apply your expertise of cloud computing stack, broad software technologies, and open source tools to resolve what are often considered seemingly unsolvable cloud technology platform challenges for our customers.
If you are a software engineer interested in building front-end, back-end or full stack services for a new and innovative cloud product, then we are interested in talking to you. We're looking for ideas and skills from every area of computer science, including information retrieval, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking, security, and user interface design. The list goes on and grows daily. You’ll work in small teams that use Agile methodology to keep up in a fast paced business environment. We need our engineers to be versatile and passionate to handle new problems as we continue to push technology forward.
Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running.
