Are you part ace coder, part adrenaline junkie? Do you have a knack for seeing a problem and immediately discerning the likely solution? Maybe you've been coding for years, are bored with the old design-build-review-test-ship-repeat routine, and yearn for some faster-paced challenges? Or perhaps you're a seasoned software engineer who is also a genius at jockeying networks and administering UNIX clusters.
We're looking for top-notch thrill seeking, software engineers to join the Google.com team. Google.com engineers are in the thick of everything involved with keeping Google running, from code-level troubleshooting of traffic anomalies to maintenance of our most cutting edge services; from monitoring and alerts to building new automation infrastructure. We are aggressively building this elite team of high level engineers in this mission critical environment. All team members must have strong analytical and troubleshooting skills, fluency in coding, good communication skills, and most of all enthusiasm for tackling the complex problems of scale which are uniquely Google. Google.com engineers tackle challenging, novel situations every day, and work with just about every other engineering and operations team in the process.
Strong programming/scripting skills in any of the following: C, C++, Java, Perl, Python.
Senior Level experience with Unix system administration.
Strong understanding of networking; understanding of how to isolate, diagnose, and resolve service delivery components (service delivery components include servers, networks, and applications); be familiar with the functionality, operating, and failure modes of key networking devices (routers, switches, bridges, firewalls, hardware load balancers); be able to identify networking as the potential cause of a service issue using server-resident tools to generate this data (tcpdump, ping, traceroute, etc.); familiarity in interpreting the output of these tools; familiarity with common network topologies, protocols, and tools; have some notion of common network security exploits -- and their remedies; understanding of troubleshooting at the packet level.
Strong project management skills, especially in deploying live end-user systems.
In-depth knowledge of Unix (preferably Linux), and shell scripting.
Proven technical troubleshooting experience.
Excellent analytic ability, strong communication skills, and a strong sense of urgency.
Ability to handle periodic on-call duty as well as out-of-band requests.
6-15+ years experience for Senior SWE position, or 3-8 years experience for SWE position.
