    About the job

    Our computational challenges are so big, complex and unique we can't just purchase off-the-shelf hardware, we've got to make it ourselves. Your team designs and builds the hardware, software and networking technologies that power all of Google's services. As a Hardware Engineer, you design and build the systems that are the heart of the world's largest and most powerful computing infrastructure. You develop from the lowest levels of circuit design to large system design and see those systems all the way through to high volume manufacturing. Your work has the potential to shape the machinery that goes into our cutting-edge data centers affecting millions of Google users.

    With your technical expertise, you lead projects in multiple areas of expertise (i.e., engineering domains or systems) within a data center facility, including construction and equipment installation/troubleshooting/debugging with vendors.

    As a Machine Learning ASIC Design Engineering Lead, you will provide day-to-day guidance to Silicon engineers. You and the team will be responsible for architecting, designing, and verifying digital logic using Chisel, Verilog, and/or SystemVerilog for the gChips TPU team. You will interface with architects to define features and interface with Physical Design teams to ensure efficient implementation to produce high-quality PPA. You will work with Production and Silicon Validation teams to enable chip bring-up and production test.

    Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our team combines the best of Google AI, Software, and Hardware to create radically helpful experiences.
