Google’s software engineers develop the next-generation technologies that change how billions of users connect, explore, and interact with information and one another. Our products need to handle information at massive scale, and extend well beyond web search. We’re looking for engineers who bring fresh ideas from all areas, including information retrieval, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking and data storage, security, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, UI design and mobile; the list goes on and is growing every day. As a software engineer, you will work on a specific project critical to Google’s needs with opportunities to switch teams and projects as you and our fast-paced business grow and evolve. We need our engineers to be versatile, display leadership qualities and be enthusiastic to take on new problems across the full-stack as we continue to push technology forward.
The Operations Research team builds technology to solve optimization problems of the world. The team is composed of software engineers and research scientists with expertise in various optimization techniques, including mathematical programming, constraint programming, SAT-based optimization, local search, vehicle routing, reinforcement learning, and graph algorithms. We work closely with other Alphabet teams and external customers, blending various technologies to build useful optimization solutions.
As a Software Engineer in Operations Research, you’ll consult with others to help solve their optimization problems. Sometimes that involves modeling the problem and handing it off to a solver; more often, it involves building a solver specialized to the problem at hand. We also research and implement novel algorithms for optimization.
Research happens at Google everyday, on many different embedded teams throughout the company. Our research reaches the user through both services and products such as Search, Maps, Google Assistant, Google Translate, Google Cloud and our computing, storage, and networking infrastructure. To achieve this, we’re working on a wide variety of projects that utilize the latest state-of-the-art technologies that push the boundaries of what is possible.
