About the job
Systems Administrators embrace Google’s motto to ensure millions of users can access the world’s information without a glitch. As a Systems Administrator at Google, you own and support the needs of one of Google’s server infrastructure systems. You’re highly technical and work directly with other server and service owners to ensure reliability and sustainability of the Google service infrastructure as well as compliance with internal policies. Success in this role means you are able to support servers in a mixed operating system environment and work efficiently with our internal technology providers as well as other operations groups. Googlers rely on your guidance when it comes to design decisions so you’ll have a direct impact in keeping the business productive.
In this role, you will work with our hardware testing engineers, hardware engineers, software engineers, and researchers to improve and maintain stability of our non-standard large scale capture systems. You will work on both software (e.g., automation of software deployment, PC configuration, network configuration, and testing software tools) and hardware (e.g., networking design, and PC hardware setup).
Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our Devices & Services team combines the best of Google AI, Software, and Hardware to create radically helpful experiences for users. We research, design, and develop new technologies and hardware to make our user’s interaction with computing faster, seamless, and more powerful. Whether finding new ways to capture and sense the world around us, advancing form factors, or improving interaction methods, the Devices & Services team is making people’s lives better through technology.
Compile, deploy, and test internal and third-party software on non-standard large-scale capture systems.
Automate software deployment on distributed capture systems and monitor status and health of distributed capture systems.
Network, design, and configure for personal computer communication and computer to camera communication.
Troubleshoot custom hardware solutions and build and maintain capture personal computers. Deploy and maintain small server farms for rendering.
Test and deploy multi-camera control software and application programming interfaces, low-level control software for specialized hardware such as lighting, cameras, and depth sensors, and tools across multiple platforms in multiple programming languages.
