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 Automation Engineer, you will own the development and maintenance of the Chip validation environment, from all aspects. You will develop new features, required to increase setups utilization and productivity.

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.

Build, from the ground-up, scalable hardware automation environment to support the silicon Validation team.
Integrate all setup’s needs to a single tool (e.g., lab equipment, logger, debugger, DUT board, etc.).
Integrate post-processing tool, for fast analysis, and report generation.
Integrate regression tool, for adding features and tools that the team needs.
Support hot-spots debugging, by creating issue specific scenarios.
