Our computational challenges are so big and unique we can't just buy our hardware, we've got to make it ourselves. Our Platforms Team designs and builds the hardware, software and networking technologies that power all of Google's services. As a Mechanical Engineer you design and evaluate our data center systems, identifying product requirements and contributing to research and project planning. From the chip to chiller, you are responsible for designing and optimizing an architecture that will scale with Google's continued growth.

With your technical expertise, you lead and manage projects, develop product and process improvements, provide consultation to others and help facilitate training and development.

As a motivated Mechanical Engineer with demonstrated design and construction experience, you will be involved in program level engineering projects and the modification of existing infrastructures. You'll provide and prepare all types of documents including engineering reports, design docs, TCO analysis, drawing markup, budget, schedule and more.
