Manufacturing Test Engineer

Google - Sunnyvale, CA4.3

At Google, our philosophy is build it, break it and then rebuild it better. That thinking is at the core of how we approach testing at Google. Unlike roles with similar names at the other companies, Test Engineers at Google aren't manual testers - you write scripts to automate testing and create tools so developers can test their own code. As a Test Engineer, you navigate Google's massive codebase, identify weak spots and constantly design better and creative ways to break software and identify potential problems. You'll have a huge impact on the quality of Google's growing suite of products and services.

In this role, you'll help to drive the strategy and approaches we use for testing Google's most critical infrastructure for compute, accelerators, networking, power, cooling and monitoring systems. You will be responsible for the manufacturing test strategy, and for associated implementation, with our vendors and contract manufacturers. You will evaluate the product designs and create the process, tools and procedures to properly test volume manufacturing. You will also collaborate with the Product Design team, along with Hardware Engineering and Manufacturing teams, to determine test requirements, to establish test methodologies, and to test fixture implementation.

Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio possible. We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We're always on call to keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
