About the job

A line of code can be many things - an amazing feature, a beautiful UI, a transformative algorithm. The faster this line of code reaches millions of users, the sooner it impacts their lives. As a Software Engineer, Tools and Infrastructure, you will be at the heart of Google’s engineering process building software that empowers engineering teams to develop and deliver high quality products quickly. We are focused on solving the hardest, most interesting challenges of developing software at scale without sacrificing stability, quality, velocity or code health.

We ensure Google's success by partnering with engineering teams and developing scalable tools and infrastructure that help engineers develop, test, debug and release software quickly. We impact thousands of Googlers and billions of users by increasing the pace of product development and ensuring our products are thoroughly tested. We are advocates for code health, testability, maintainability and best practices for development and testing.

Having access to all of Google's platforms and vast compute resources provides a unique opportunity to grow as an engineer. We typically work in small, nimble teams that collaborate on common problems across products and focus areas. As a result, the exposure to this broad set of problems provides diverse technical challenges as well as accelerated career growth.

Engineering Productivity drives velocity, quality, excellence for software stack that powers Google home by building tooling, test infrastructure, and driving quality insights into development process.

We're building virtual device emulator to speed developer workflows, and developing interoperability frameworks to ensure our ecosystem and partner apps work flawlessly. We write tools that measure and give insight on performance bottlenecks.

The Google Nest team focuses on hardware, software, and services for the home, ranging from Nest thermostats to Nest smart displays. The Google Nest team develops, designs, and develops new technologies and hardware to make users’ homes more helpful. Our mission is the helpful home: to create a home that cares for the people inside it and the world around it.


  • Work with multiple teams across organizations to solve deep technical problems that enable feature teams to ship quality code at high velocity.
  • Take end-to-end leadership on scalable infrastructure that spans across device software, services, and apps.
  • Deliver infrastructure to testing components and products based on knowledge of differences and considerations for each test phase (e.g., validity, verification, performance, reliability, usability, stress testing), and develop tests to prove out infrastructure for each of the major phases of software development.
  • Set technical direction and priorities for a small number of adjacent engineers.
  • Generate the ideas required to solve technical problems and take full ownership of the solution.
