Job Description

About the job:

Research happens across Google everyday, in many different teams. Our research has already impacted user-facing services across Google including Search, Maps, and Google Now, and is central to the success of Google Cloud and our computing, storage, and networking infrastructure.

Research Interns work closely with Research Scientists and Software Engineers to discover, invent, and build at scale. Ideas may come from internal projects as well as from collaborations with research programs at partner universities and technical institutes. From creating experiments and prototyping implementations to designing architectures, Research Interns work on challenges in artificial intelligence, machine perception, data mining, machine learning, natural language understanding, privacy, computer architecture, networking, operating systems, storage and data management, and more. You are also expected to contribute to the wider research community by publishing papers.

We’re constantly refining our signature search engine to provide better results, expanding the scope and utility of our data-analytics systems, enhancing our cloud applications and infrastructure, among a broad range of other Google products.

At Google, engineers work on search, and they routinely work on scalability and storage solutions, large-scale applications, and platforms for developers.

Google is and always will be an engineering company. We hire people with a broad set of technical skills who are ready to address some of technology’s greatest challenges and make an impact on millions, if not billions, of users. At Google, engineers not only revolutionize search, they routinely work on massive scalability and storage solutions, large-scale applications and entirely new platforms for developers around the world.
