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.
Developing an Accelerator ASIC is a complex task that requires an understanding of software workloads, pain points in execution, and effective partitioning of the workload between a general purpose machine and a hardware accelerator. To estimate the benefits of hardware acceleration, flexible architectural models of the accelerator, expressed in a higher level programming language are essential.
The Architectural Modeling Engineer will work with Chip and Software architects to define the important blocks and flows that need to be modeled to provide insights into the behavior of the Accelerator. You will work with the team to build this model, and use the model for architectural and microarchitectural exploration to help define the Accelerator.
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 keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
