Google's custom-designed equipment makes up one of the largest and most powerful computing infrastructures in the world.
The Manufacturing Operations team is responsible for providing the manufacturing capability to deliver this state-of-the-art physical infrastructure.
As a Manufacturing Engineer, you evaluate the product designs and create the processes, tools and procedures behind Google’s powerful search technology.
When vendors build parts for our infrastructure, you’re right there alongside ensuring manufacturing processes are repeatable and controlled.
You'll collaborate with Commodity Managers and Design Engineers to determine Google’s infrastructure needs and product specifications.
Your work ensures the various pieces of Google’s infrastructure fit together perfectly and keep our systems humming along smoothly for a seamless user experience.
As a Thermal Manufacturing Engineer in Google Technical Operations, you will join the team responsible for providing manufacturing support and guidance for Google’s next generation thermal solutions.
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're always on call to keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
