About the job

At Google, our philosophy is build it, break it and then rebuild it better. That thinking is at the core of how we approach testing at Google. Unlike roles with similar names at the other companies, Test Engineers at Google aren't manual testers -- you write scripts to automate testing and create tools so developers can test their own code. As a Test Engineer, you navigate Google's massive codebase, identify weak spots and constantly design better and creative ways to break software and identify potential problems. You'll have a huge impact on the quality of Google's growing suite of products and services.

We are responsible for building health and CI/CD activities, by running the smoke test suite for all features on 6 products, triaging test automation runs, and increasing test coverage. In addition to release activities, the team is also responsible for testing and maintaining software platform features such as: peripheral drivers, sensors, file systems, encryption, security features, and other OS-level features.
