About the job
At Google, research-focused Software Engineers are embedded throughout the company, allowing them to setup large-scale tests and deploy promising ideas quickly and broadly. Ideas may come from internal projects as well as from collaborations with research programs at partner universities and technical institutes all over the world.
From creating experiments and prototyping implementations to designing new architectures, engineers work on real-world problems including artificial intelligence, data mining, natural language processing, hardware and software performance analysis, improving compilers for mobile platforms, as well as core search and much more. But you stay connected to your research roots as an active contributor to the wider research community by partnering with universities and publishing papers.
Google’s Privacy Sandbox is a company-wide effort to make it impossible to track users across sites and apps at scale. You will work with anti-fraud teams around the world to identify how their abilities are impacted by these changes, and invent new technologies that allow us to concurrently improve privacy and safety.
You will also help us develop new protocols for privacy-preserving feedback mechanisms, design systems for interactive and differentially private analysis, and more. You will thrive at the bleeding edge of research and globe-scale design and deployment, collaborating with the world’s most advanced anti-fraud teams and privacy researchers. You will help with the design of protocols employing blind signatures, zero-knowledge proofs, and more.
