Hi there! We've updated our Jobs site and added some new features to improve your experience. Show me.
This position is based in Atlanta, GA; Kirkland/Seattle, WA; Lenoir, NC; Los Angeles, CA; Mountain View, CA; New York, NY; Pittsburgh, PA; San Francisco, CA or The Dalles, OR.
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.
As a Software Engineer working on Google's critical production applications and infrastructure, your mission will be to ensure Google is always fast, available, scalable and engineered to withstand unparalleled demand. You will be in the thick of solving the [often unexpected] problems of systems at scale in a way most engineers never experience.
Your scope is from the kernel level to the continent level. This position requires the flexibility and aptitude to zoom in to fine-grained detail, and the agility to zoom right back out and up the stack. Delve into how software performs, packets flow, and hardware and code interact, in support of managing services, steering global traffic and predicting and preventing failures.... all in a day's work.
You will design and develop systems to run Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, Maps, Voice, AppEngine, and more. You'll manage, automate, and make data- based decisions and judgment calls which influence globally distributed applications. You'll own the production services which comprise *.google.com, and critical infrastructure like GFS, BigTable, MapReduce,Chubby and large- scale 'cloud computing' clusters.
You will also be driving performance and reliability from software and infrastructure at massive scale -- where dealing in petabytes and gigabits and shifting by orders of magnitude is routine. You will tackle challenging, novel situations every day and work with just about every other engineering and operations team at Google. You will be looked upon as an expert and advocate to fellow engineers on making design and reliability trade-offs in running large- scale services and engineering complex systems that fail gracefully and transparently to users.
As a successful candidate for this role you will have strong analytical and troubleshooting skills, fluency in coding and systems design, solid communication skills and a desire to tackle the complex problems of scale which are uniquely Google. We are particularly interested in software engineers familiar with aspects of running web services at scale -- depth in either networking technologies and Unix system calls are strong pluses.
Google is very happy to be located in Lenoir, North Carolina. We announced our plans to build a data center here in early 2007, and today we are a fully operational site that has already begun benefitting our users around the world. We have had an excellent experience in Lenoir as we've built out this $600 million investment, and we look forward to being a part of the Caldwell County community for many years to come.Location: Lenoir
