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.

In this role you will help architect, design, and bring up Emulation or FPGA or Prototyping systems to serve our ASIC projects. You will work directly with other team members as well as designers, DV Engineers, Validation Engineers, and software teams to deliver emulation or prototyping capabilities. This may include designing the testbench, monitors, or transactors for Emulation or Prototyping systems.

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.

The US base salary range for this full-time position is $127,000-$187,000 + bonus + equity + benefits. Our salary ranges are determined by role, level, and location.

  • Create and support emulation models from RTL. Drive system bringup on emulation platforms, debug test failures and simulation/emulation mismatches.
  • Bring up external I/O interfaces (e.g., PCIe, Memories, SERDES, SPI, JTAG etc.) on the emulation platforms.
  • Develop and operate tests on the emulators and assist in bring-up processes from prototyping through post-silicon validation.
  • Create standalone test cases for tool issues encountered in the emulation compile and runtime flows.
  • Contribute to ongoing methodology and automation improvements, constantly evolving and improving emulation efficiency and value.
