      About the job

      Google's software engineers develop the next-generation technologies that change how billions of users connect, explore, and interact with information and one another. Our products need to handle information at massive scale, and extend well beyond web search. We're looking for engineers who bring fresh ideas from all areas, including information retrieval, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking and data storage, security, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, UI design and mobile; the list goes on and is growing every day. As a software engineer, you will work on a specific project critical to Google’s needs with opportunities to switch teams and projects as you and our fast-paced business grow and evolve. We need our engineers to be versatile, display leadership qualities and be enthusiastic to take on new problems across the full-stack as we continue to push technology forward.

      With your technical expertise you will manage project priorities, deadlines, and deliverables. You will design, develop, test, deploy, maintain, and enhance software solutions.

      Our team develops the Accelerated Linear Algebra (XLA) TPU/GPU parallelizing compiler used to partition, optimize, and run large-scale machine learning models across multiple TPU/GPU accelerators for internal and external customers. The XLA Horizontal Scaling team’s software stack includes the XLA Single Program Multiple Data (SPMD) partitioner, collective and scheduling optimizations, and code generation.

      Google Cloud accelerates every organization’s ability to digitally transform its business and industry. We deliver enterprise-grade solutions that leverage Google’s cutting-edge technology, and tools that help developers build more sustainably. Customers in more than 200 countries and territories turn to Google Cloud as their trusted partner to enable growth and solve their most critical business problems.


      • Write product or system development code.
      • Participate in, or lead design reviews with peers and stakeholders to decide amongst available technologies.
      • Contribute to a compiler which scales-out machine learning models across accelerators such as Tensor Processing Unit (TPU)/Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) at Google and Cloud. 
      • Conduct static and runtime performance analysis of important large-scale production models.
      • Design and implement performance optimizations and critical features, which increase the velocity of important production teams.
