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.
The Android OS Media Framework team owns the multimedia building blocks that power nearly all multimedia activities on billions of Android devices. We work with developers, silicon vendors, device manufacturers (including our own Pixel team) as well as our camera and graphics/display teams to create flawless and easy-to-use solutions to creating, consuming and managing media and thus delighting our users.
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.
Ensure a great multimedia experience for our users by designing, implementing, and maintaining the Android media stack written in C++ and Java.
Improve the quality, usefulness, maintainability, and robustness of our media stack.
Work with application developers to improve our developer-facing APIs and their feature set.
