About the job
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.
With your technical expertise you will manage project priorities, deadlines, and deliverables. You will design, develop, test, deploy, maintain, and enhance software solutions.
Skia is a cross-platform 2D rendering engine used in a variety of Google products including Chrome, Android, and Flutter. Many people see our pixels every day. Our goals are to deliver excellent 2D graphics (i.e., quality and performance) to our customers, drive standards and frameworks forward (e.g., Canvas 2D, Android Canvas API, Flutter Canvas API).
In this role, you will enable UI features through custom client-written shading effects, incorporate graphic processing unit (GPU) hardware features into Skia to improve performance, and extend our reach within Google by seeking out customers.
Google is an engineering company at heart. We hire people with a broad set of technical skills who are ready to take on some of technology’s greatest challenges and make an impact on users around the world. At Google, engineers not only revolutionize search, they routinely work on scalability and storage solutions, large-scale applications and entirely new platforms for developers around the world. From Google Ads to Chrome, Android to YouTube, social to local, Google engineers are changing the world one technological achievement after another.
Design and implement Skia library features.
Work on our framework and tooling to enable custom client-written custom shader effects.
Work in client code bases (i.e., Chrome, Android, Flutter, etc.) on integration of Skia and use of Skia APIs.
Debug correctness and performance issues on a variety of hardware platforms, mobile, and desktop.
Work with multiple 3D APIs (i.e., Metal, Vulkan, D3D, OpenGL) and leverage advanced API features in Skia.
