About the job

Google Engineers develop the next-generation technologies that change how users connect, explore, and interact with information and one another. As a member of the team, you will develop new products. Our engineers solve new problems.

As a Sensor Validation Engineer, you will secure and develop new optical sensor/motion sensor solutions for the next generation of Google hardware products. You will work closely with cross-functional teams to evaluate the risk of ongoing sensor technology and help land the sensor and new application feature for project stages. You will also have the opportunity to restructure the sensor performance validation and expand the test coverage across different ongoing projects.

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.


  • Define and expand sensor performance validation scope. Secure sensor performance and connect to system perspective from prototype stage to mass production stage, including key performance validation, automation feasibility of validation, and Failure Analysis.
  • Create and execute validation plans to cover each stage design change or extra possibility impacts sensor performance to achieve functional and performance goals.
  • Define and design basic software GUI to connect android system and test equipment integration for sensor performance validation.
  • Document and present results to internal and external engineering teams about the validation results.
  • Provide on-site build support to ensure product assembly quality is acceptable, the SOP is being followed, and sensor functionality/performance is adequate.
