Network Infrastructure (NetInfra) designs Google’s network hardware and the software that runs it. We pioneered the use of Software Defined Networking (SDN) at planetary scale, and we continue to design and build large-scale, high-performance, high-availability distributed systems to design, manage, measure, and control our datacenter, WAN, and peering-edge SDN networks (each of which has been the subject of at least one SIGCOMM paper).
In this role, you’ll work on the NetInfra team to deliver Google’s next generation networks. You’ll work with other skillful, creative people, including many other PhDs, and people who wrote research papers you’ve read. You will be designing and building software for distributed services, abstractions, and the components of the system that operates and powers the world’s largest network infrastructure, from data center fabrics, to wide area networks, to the peering edge. You’ll have the chance to host interns, write influential research papers, and perhaps serve on program committees, to keep connected with the academic research community.
