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.

You will work with some of the best hardware engineers on multiple optical and electrical technologies to create and deploy technology capabilities beyond the current state of the art. In this role, you'll apply your experience in displays and industry supply chains to develop exceptional optical and systems-level solutions. You have the chance to work with colleagues across domains, including Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Design, Product, and Program Management. Additionally, you'll work with system engineers and product designers to inform future product directions.

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.

  • Deliver complete display module designs, including optical and mechanical specifications.

  • Work directly with contract manufacturers, providing technical direction and guidance.

  • Ensure that displays meet/exceed product requirements, as established with stakeholders.

  • Anticipate and manage risks and needs in the display program.

  • Assist prototyping and display research and development projects.
