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.

As a Silicon Validation Debug Engineer, you will work as part of the Research and Development team. You will build our validation methodologies and validation tools, lead and debug the most complex and interesting HW issues and bring them to closure. Take a significant part in cross-functional efforts to validate the chip and bring it all the way to production.

Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio possible. We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.


  • Develop, reproduce, and execute tests on real silicone and/or hardware emulators.
  • Drive to increase Post Silicon debug capabilities by developing new tools, suggesting design changes and new debug flows.
  • Lead and assist in debugging complex SoC/CPU across the full post-silicon development cycle.
