Job Description

A line of code can be many things - an amazing feature, a beautiful UI, a transformative algorithm. The faster this line of code reaches millions of users, the sooner it impacts their lives. As a Software Engineer, Tools and Infrastructure, you will be at the heart of Google's engineering process building software that empowers engineering teams to develop and deliver high quality products quickly. We are focused on solving the hardest, most interesting challenges of developing software at scale without sacrificing stability, quality, velocity or code health.

We ensure Google's success by partnering with engineering teams and developing scalable tools and infrastructure that help engineers develop, test, debug and release software quickly. We impact thousands of Googlers and billions of users by increasing the pace of product development and ensuring our products are thoroughly tested. We are champions for code health, testability, maintainability and best practices for development and testing.

Having access to all of Google's platforms and vast compute resources provides a unique opportunity to grow as an engineer. We typically work in small, nimble teams that collaborate on common problems across products and focus areas. As a result, the exposure to this broad set of problems provides diverse technical challenges as well as accelerated career growth.

You are a Software Engineer who is up for pushing the boundaries of hardware limitations (and maybe even physics) and who can prove that "actually, it's possible". You'll be building tooling around development frameworks, streaming video evaluation and monitoring, backend test infrastructure and performance measurement and optimization.

You will work on complex projects with deep software and technology stacks - a great opportunity to craft and shape novel systems from the ground up. You will work with this revolutionary technology and be in a position to make impact on the product and team.

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Only one thing consistently stands in the way between our users and the world's information - hardware. 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.

## Responsibilities

* Lead/contribute to engineering efforts from planning and organization to execution and delivery to solve complex engineering problems in tools and testing.
* Design and build advanced automated testing frameworks.
* Design and build tooling and infrastructure to help engineering teams measure and increase their velocity.
* Drive adoption of best practices in code health, testing, and maintainability.
* Analyze and decompose complex software systems and collaborate with and influence others to improve the overall design.

## Qualifications

Minimum qualifications:

* BS in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent practical experience.
* Relevant internship or work experience, including development and/or test automation experience.

Preferred qualifications:

* Master's or PhD in Computer Science or related technical field.
* Extensive knowledge of Unix/Linux environments.
* Deep knowledge of Internet technologies.
* Excellent coding skills in C, C++, Java, or Python.
* Scripting skills in Python, Perl, Shell or another common language.
