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.

The Visualization and Sound team within Google Augmented Reality (Devices and Services) develops user experiences that leverage advancements in sensing, perception, visualization, and sound to bring new capabilities for augmentation.

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will join our team to contribute to our machine learning and signal processing efforts, which will inform both product and research directions. You will advance productization in these areas through engineering, research, design, and development. You will help ideate, prototype, evaluate, and eventually productize novel experiences in a highly collaborative work environment.

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.
