About the job

At Google, our philosophy is build it, break it and then rebuild it better. That thinking is at the core of how we approach testing at Google. Unlike roles with similar names at the other companies, Test Engineers at Google aren't manual testers -- you write scripts to automate testing and create tools so developers can test their own code. As a Test Engineer, you navigate Google's massive codebase, identify weak spots and constantly design better and creative ways to break software and identify potential problems. You'll have a huge impact on the quality of Google's growing suite of products and services.

As a Test Engineer in Pixel Graphics Software, you will make sure that our software and hardware components which form the foundation of the Android Graphics stack hold up to quality and reliability over the lifespan of Pixel devices. You will work closely with other test engineering teams and technical program managers to plan, scope, and guide the test automation specifically for our team.

Responsibilities

  • Improve existing test infrastructure or create new test infrastructure to increase efficiency and productivity in test case development, scheduling, or deployment.
  • Participate in product design review with product managers, software/hardware engineers, and other stakeholders to contribute to product design, testability, and implementation.
  • Develop, configure and own automation of a variety of test cases, ranging from customized test executables over Android Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) to long-time system stability tests.
  • Work with executive engineers in our team to identify test coverage shortcomings, and to define steps towards improvements.
  • Monitor, evaluate and report on test status, quality metrics, and test capacity/load figures.
