Hardware Signal Integrity Engineer

Minimum qualifications:

+ Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, a related field, or equivalent practical experience.

+ Experience in high speed digital interconnect design and experience with integrated system testing.

+ Experience with transmission line and electromagnetic theory, with data analysis skills.

+ Experience in SI/PI design techniques (PCB routing rules) and with lab measurements (Oscilloscopes, VNA, or TDR).

Preferred qualifications:

+ Master's, or PhD in Electrical Engineering.

+ 7 years of industry experience in system-level SI design.

+ Experience with Allegro, ADS, MATLAB, PowerDC, PowerSI, HFSS, SIwave, CST and scripting for data collection and analysis (Python, bash).

+ Experience with the product development process for mass volume production design, with a focus on signal integrity and lab validation with lab experience with SerDes testing.

+ Familiarity with PCIE, DDR, SATA and Ethernet standards along with PCB, connector, and/or cable design and assembly processes, including materials and component selection.

+ Understanding of state-of-the-art SERDES capabilities and of FEC and its implications for system design.

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.

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.

+ Lead System Signal Integrity (SI) design on data center hardware products.

+ Collaborate with board, chip and system engineers, design partners, and chip vendors, to drive system SI design, explore layout and manufacturability tradeoffs, and ensure that product functions as required.

+ Drive ASIC, package, board, connector, and cable vendors to develop new interconnect technologies.

+ Work on system interconnect bring up and qualification (working with test engineers), including configuring chips to ensure adequate margin.

+ Drive solutions for SI issues with design engineers, PCB designers, and system team and run trade-off analysis on performance and cost.
