Software Engineers at Google are researchers and developers who yearn to create and implement complex computer science solutions. Our engineers develop massively scalable, distributed software systems and also collaborate on multitudes of smaller projects that have universal appeal – which requires research, awareness, interactivity, and asking questions. You build strong competencies in data structures and algorithms, along with a technical fascination for how stuff fits together. We focus on being a collaborative, global organization consisting of engineers with the highest levels of technical depth, programming skills and a keen eye for quality.
Our Summer internships start in May/June 2020 and are 10-12 weeks in duration.
1) Currently pursuing a BS, MS or PhD in computer science or a related technical field.
2) Experience in software development in one or more general purpose programming languages.
3) Ability to speak and write in English fluently and idiomatically.
1) Returning to a degree program after completion of the internship.
2) Experience in systems software or algorithms.
3) Knowledge of Unix/Linux or Windows environments and APIs.
4) Familiarity with TCP/IP and network programming.
5) Effective implementation skills (C++, Java, Python).
As a Software Engineer, you will work on our core products and services as well as those who support critical functions of our engineering operations. Depending on your background and experience, you will be working in one of the following areas:
Product and Systems Development:
Whether it’s finding new and innovative ways to advance search quality, building computing platform and networking technologies, automating the indexing of videos, or continuing to refine and scale complex auction systems (just to name a few), you will be developing solutions to some of the most challenging technical problems out there. You will research, conceive and develop software applications to extend and improve on Google’s product offerings and collaborate on scalability issues involving access to massive amounts of data and information. Examples of specialist domains: UI development with AJAX and similar technologies, security, embedded systems and mobile apps (Android), developer tools (IDEs, large-scale build systems, compilers).
In this organization, you’ll use your software design, analysis and programming skills to create innovative automated test systems. This isn’t a job in which you’ll simply debug and run test cases, in fact that only scratches the surface. The test team undertakes a broad range of challenges on a daily basis, designing and building intelligent systems that can explore various use cases and scenarios for distributed computing infrastructure. Just imagine trying to design and build an automated testing system for something that’s never been done before.
Software engineers working in Site Reliability are involved in every facet of Google’s production and work on the cutting edge of cloud-based computing. As a member of this elite team you are in the thick of everything involved with keeping Google running, from code-level troubleshooting of traffic anomalies to maintenance of our most cutting edge services; from monitoring and alerts to building new automation infrastructure. Software engineers on this team love to create robust and scalable software that scale to tens of millions of users. You will address challenging, novel situations every day, and work with just about every other engineering and operations team to provide services and applications that are quintessentially Google – fast, reliable and accessible to all.
