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.
In this role, you will develop new algorithms and hardware architectures for hardware-accelerated image and video processing applications. You will work on topics that span areas of image processing, digital imaging, computer vision, computational photography, and machine intelligence. You will invent new algorithms, develop architectural C-models and specify architectures for future generation products. You will also collaborate with Software and Hardware Architects to explore, build and test the best hardware architectures to process images and videos for applications including digital photography and machine intelligence.
Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our team combines the best of Google AI, Software, and Hardware to create radically helpful experiences. We research, design, and develop new technologies and hardware to make computing faster, seamless, and more powerful. We aim to make people's lives better through technology.
Invent imaging pipeline blocks suitable for hardware implementations.
Evaluate the architectural design and algorithms for digital photography, computer vision or machine intelligence scenarios.
Design, define and specify computer vision and image and video processing IP. Author hardware specifications for efficient and practical implementation.
Work with the Architecture team to understand and improve the architecture and use cases.
Work with the Image Quality and Software teams to understand their requirements and to improve the designs.
