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 Physical Design Engineer on the chip implementation team, you will work on the physical implementation of ASICs using advanced technology nodes. You will perform technical evaluations of vendors, process nodes and IP and will provide recommendations. You will work with teams to understand and implement their requirements and drive block and full-chip level physical implementation and quality of results (power, timing, area). You will develop physical design methodologies, automation scripts and write documentation.

Minimum qualifications:

  • BS degree in Electrical Engineering or equivalent practical experience.

  • 7 years of experience in ASIC physical design flows and methodologies in advanced nodes. Multiple foundry experience.

  • Scripting experience in Python, TCL or Perl.

  • Experience with ASIC physical design flows and methodologies including synthesis, place and route, STA, formal verification, CDC and power analysis.

Preferred qualifications:

  • MS degree in Electrical Engineering.

  • Experience solving physical design challenges across various technologies such as embedded processors, DDR, networking fabrics, etc.

  • Experience in extraction of design parameters, QOR metrics, and analyzing trends

  • Experience leading one or more aspects of physical design and IP integration (memories, IO's and Analog IP).

  • Working knowledge of semiconductor device physics and transistor characteristics and working knowledge of Verilog/System Verilog.

  • Perform block level physical implementation steps including synthesis, floorplanning, place and route, power/clock distribution, congestion analysis, timing closure, CDC analysis and formal verification.

  • Work with logic designers to drive architectural feasibility studies, develop timing, power and area design targets, and explore RTL/design tradeoffs for physical design closure.

  • Perform technical evaluations of vendors, process nodes, IP and provide recommendations.

  • Develop physical design methodologies and automation scripts for various implementation steps.

Your work has the potential to shape the machinery that goes into our cutting-edge data centers affecting millions of Google users. Pulling on your technical and leadership expertise, you lead end-to-end research projects in multiple areas of expertise across data center facilities and manage a team of direct reports working on equipment installation, troubleshooting and debugging. As an Engineering Manager, you'll help deliver products that impact the technical infrastructure at Google. You'll provide leadership to Hardware Engineers in an innovative and fast-paced environment with a focus on physical implementation. You'll own and drive complex technical projects from the concept/planning stage through execution and closure. As an Engineering Manager, you'll motivate the team to deliver excellent designs in multiple application areas. Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio possible. We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible. Minimum qualifications: * Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or equivalent practical experience. * 15 years of experience in ASIC implementation methodologies, IP integration and physical design in 16nm and 28nm process nodes, STA, CDC and power analysis using CAD tools. * 5 years of management experience in ASIC development teams. * Experience leading physical design teams producing working silicon. Preferred qualifications: * Master's degree in Electrical Engineering. * Experience in IP integration (e.g., memories, IO's and Analog IP), ASIC model as a customer or vendor, and working knowledge of Verilog/SystemVerilog. * Experience in solving physical design challenges across various technologies such as embedded processors, DDR, networking fabrics, etc. * Demonstrated fundamentals in chip design and implementation topics (e.g., micro-architecture design, digital design, design verification, physical design, integration, EDA, power optimization, synthesis, timing, etc.). * Ability to motivate and lead a team. * Ability to collaborate and influence others using engineering solutions. Excellent attention to detail. * Lead a team of physical design engineers. Evaluate and develop physical design methodologies, tools and automation scripts for various implementation steps. * Create execution plans for projects and manage team efforts from concept to working silicon in volume. Manage vendor engagements and provide technical evaluations of vendors, process nodes and IP. * Participate in design reviews and track issue resolution, and engage in technical discussions. Collaborate with teams across Google to identify and create opportunities for custom silicon innovation. * Understand architecture and design specifications with the larger team, and define physical design strategies and tactics to meet quality and schedule goals. Grow and develop a high-performing team by recruiting new members and developing the existing team. * Work closely with architecture, design and implementation stakeholders to provide status and iterative milestones. Make design decisions throughout the development process. Google Inc. Sunnyvale CA
