About the job
Like Google’s own ambitions, the work of a Software Engineer (SWE) goes way beyond just Search. SWE Managers have not only the technical expertise to take on and provide technical leadership to major projects, but also manage a team of engineers. You not only optimize your own code but make sure engineers are able to optimize theirs. As a SWE Manager you manage your project goals, contribute to product strategy and help develop your team. SWE teams work all across the company, in areas such as information retrieval, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking, security, data compression, user interface design; the list goes on and is growing every day. Operating with scale and speed, our exceptional software engineers are just getting started – and as a manager, you guide the way.
In this role, you will work to enable Google, developers, and device manufacturers to build and launch multi-device experiences. Device-to-Device Interaction is a key part of Google’s Better Together strategy and long-term ambient computing vision.
On this team, we are responsible for simplifying and accelerating multi-device experience development. We help to build, launch, and land experiences. Our technology simplifies device discovery, authorization, and establishing secure peer-to-peer connections while preserving user privacy. We do this through building APIs that abstract underlying technologies, simplifying instrumenting analytics across devices, and providing ways to easily simulate device interactions.
Android is Google’s open-source mobile operating system powering more than 3 billion devices worldwide. Android is about bringing computing to everyone in the world. We believe computing is a super power for good, enabling access to information, economic opportunity, productivity, connectivity between friends and family and more. We think everyone in the world should have access to the best computing has to offer. We provide the platform for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and developers to build compelling computing devices (smartphones, tablets, TVs, wearables, etc) that run the best apps/services for everyone in the world.
Design, guide, and vet systems designs within the scope of the broader area, and write product or system development code to solve ambiguous problems.
Lead, build, and grow a team of Software Engineers in a growing organization.
Partner closely with leadership on key partner and engineering teams to define and execute parallel workstreams while ensuring consistency and coherence.
Ensure a culture that values safety, trust, and respect.
Partner with teams across Google to consolidate technologies, collaborate on projects, and ensure the utility of the team’s work.
