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.

As a Software Engineer on the Crashlytics team, you will help maintain the most widely used and loved mobile crash reporting SDK for iOS, Android and Unity. Today, Crashlytics runs on over four billion devices worldwide, providing a lightweight, realtime crash reporter that helps developers easily track, prioritize, and fix stability issues impacting their app quality.

We believe that code isn't valuable until it's making our customers' lives better, so we strive to get things into their hands early and iterate on their feedback.

In addition to our focus on customers, we focus on ourselves. Crashlytics, and the rest of the Firebase Application Fitness team, value personal and group training and improvement.

This is an opportunity to influence a high-impact product as part of a collaborative, growth-oriented team.

Making the world's information universally accessible and useful doesn't stop at the desktop. The Mobile team builds tools to get you the information you need no matter where you are. Android has become the world's most popular mobile ecosystem, powering billions of devices, from smartphones to tablets, watches to TVs and everything in between. Whether adding to the core Android experience, forging new markets for digital content, creating immersive and portable versions of our products or managing relationships with a global community of developers, the Mobile team is giving you Google on the go.

Minimum qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent practical experience.

  • 1 year of relevant work experience.

  • Experience with mobile application development or Android framework development.

  • Software development experience in Java.

Preferred qualifications:

  • Master's or PhD in Computer Science or related technical field.

  • Experience with Native Development Kit (NDK) or Unity.

  • Interest in launching and iterating on products, and excitement to immerse yourself in the challenges facing 3rd party mobile developers.

  • Detailed knowledge of mobile ecosystems, such as Android Studio, Gradle, etc.

  • Help developers increase their app stability.

  • Improve the Crashlytics SDKs and client-side developer tools, such as Gradle, for Android, NDK, and Unity.

  • Contribute to a cross-functional team that values shipping and puts the customer experience front and center.
