About the job

Like Google's own ambitions, the work of a Software Engineer (SWE) goes way beyond just Search. SWE Managers have not only the technical expertise to take on and provide technical leadership to major projects, but also manage a team of engineers. You not only optimize your own code but make sure engineers are able to optimize theirs. As a SWE Manager you manage your project goals, contribute to product strategy and help develop your team. SWE teams work all across the company, in areas such as information retrieval, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking, security, data compression, user interface design; the list goes on and is growing every day. Operating with scale and speed, our exceptional software engineers are just getting started -- and as a manager, you guide the way.

This team’s mission is to create a thriving web ecosystem that is respectful of users and private by default. The Privacy Sandox effort is a project that will fundamentally change the way users experience the web as the privacy protections we are building will allow users to browse without fear of potential tracking or data collection. The Private Platforms and Experiences team within Privacy Sandbox works at the intersection of client API development, privacy, and security. One of our core problem areas is to support anti-abuse defenses on the web, as well as mobile environments. We develop new protocols and core technologies that help protect user safety, and web services' integrity while improving privacy, security, and accessibility on the web.

The Platforms and Ecosystems product area encompasses Google's various computing software platforms across environments (desktop, mobile, applications). The products provide enterprises, and ultimately end users, the ability to utilize and manage their services at scale. We build innovative and compelling software products—from apps to TVs, from laptops to phones—that have an impact on people’s lives across the world.
