Experience with software design and development for typical software layers found in ASIC such as boot, drivers, embedded firmware, libraries, and API for applications.
Comprehensive knowledge of interaction types between hardware and software for different types of standard hardware blocks, CPU, and accelerators.
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 Senior Platform Software Architect, you'll understand software product requirements, use cases and applications, and how they relate to specific hardware blocks or sub-systems. You will represent the goal of the software team, and work with System Architecture, Hardware Architects, and the Hardware Implementation team.
In this role, you will define and influence their work with the goal of ensuring fulfillment of software requirements, striving for optimal software programming model and interfaces, discuss and come to an agreement on hardware/software trade off solutions, ensure scalability to future software and applications, and backwards compatibility as much as possible. You'll make decisions using a data driven approach adopting and/or developing a modeling platform that will help you side your requests. Lastly, you'll estimate the complexity of specific implementations with the intent of supporting educated estimation of staffing and scheduling required by managers or planners.
