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 key member of a small and versatile team, you design, test, deploy and maintain software solutions.

Software Engineers at Google are researchers and developers who yearn to create and implement complex computer science solutions. Our engineers develop massively scalable, distributed software systems, while also collaborating on multitudes of smaller projects that have universal appeal - requiring awareness and comprehension of the latest research in the field. We focus on being a collaborative, global organization, consisting of engineers with the highest levels of technical depth, programming skills and a keen eye for quality.

As a Software Engineering Intern, you will work on our core products and services, as well as those which support critical functions of our engineering operations. You'll build strong competencies in data structures and algorithms, while demonstrating a technical fascination for how stuff fits together. You have a solid foundation in computer science which allows you to consistently come up with new ideas, as well as to strive for a deep understanding of our products and services in order to continually improve upon them.

Internships are offered in the following areas:

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE):

Google’s Site Reliability Engineers apply software engineering skills in their mission to progress, protect, and provide for the software and systems behind all of Google’s public services - Search, Ads, Gmail, Android, YouTube and App Engine, to name just a few - with an ever-watchful eye on their availability, latency, performance and capacity. At Google, we have developed many unique systems ranging from planet-spanning databases, to near real-time scalable data warehousing, to fault-tolerant datastream joining. In SRE, we flip between the fine-grained detail of disk driver I/O scheduling to the big picture of continental-level service capacity, across a range of systems and a user population measured in billions. As a Site Reliability Engineering Intern, you will work on software development projects to keep important, revenue-critical systems up and running. Our engineers create, fix, extend and scale the code to keep it working and to harden it against all the vagaries of the internet. We drive reliability and performance across massive scale by mastering the full depth of the stack. We literally do learn something new every day - usually surprising things - that have the potential to transform the lives of billions of our users around the world.

Google is and always will be an engineering company. We hire people with a broad set of technical skills who are ready to take on some of technology's greatest challenges and make an impact on millions, if not billions, of users. At Google, engineers not only revolutionize search, they routinely work on massive scalability and storage solutions, large-scale applications and entirely new platforms for developers around the world. From AdWords to Chrome, Android to YouTube, Social to Local, Google engineers are changing the world one technological achievement after another.

Responsibilities
  • Research, conceive and develop software applications to extend and improve on Google's product offering.
  • Contribute to a wide variety of projects utilizing natural language processing, artificial intelligence, data compression, machine learning and search technologies.
  • Collaborate on scalability issues involving access to massive amounts of data and information.
Qualifications

Minimum qualifications:

  • Currently pursuing a PhD degree in Computer Science or a related technical field.
  • Must be currently enrolled in a full-time degree program and returning to the program after the completion of the internship.
