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. Expect to learn best practices for code health, testability and maintainability - critical skills for early career software engineers.

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.

Life on the web moves fast, and our millions of users around the world expect nothing less from us. Which is why Google is passionate about developing and releasing software rapidly. As a Software Engineer, Tools and Infrastructure (SETI), your mission is to build the tools and infrastructure to increase our developers' efficiency. You play a crucial part in Google's success by ensuring that our code is thoroughly tested to the highest standards. In doing so, you help us secure our business future by creating the next generation of tools and frameworks that make our users and developers more productive.

You have the opportunity to accelerate the delivery and improve the quality of Google products, and be responsible for designing and implementing development and test infrastructure. You will be part of an Engineering team that is working on problems in a number of areas including caching optimizations, content delivery, network protocols, machine learning, and mobile products. Your focus is developing code rather than fixing or finding bugs. Your job is to accelerate product development by helping developers help themselves.

Software Engineers, Tools and Infrastructure work in teams that collaborate on common problems across products and focus areas. With your technical expertise and judgment, you are an integrated part of the software development team and define, document, analyze, perform, and automate tests for products.
