Google Sensor Mechanical Engineer, Consumer Hardware in Xinyi District, Taiwan

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.

With your technical expertise, you lead projects in multiple areas of expertise (i.e., engineering domains or systems) within a data center facility, including construction and equipment installation/troubleshooting/debugging with vendors.

As a Sensor Mechanical Engineer, you'll have a solid Electro-mechanical Engineering (EE/ME) design background and knowledge of touch, force sensing, and/or haptics systems for consumer products. You will work with internal cross-functional teams and external partners in order to define transducer specifications. In addition, you will work with other team members on transducer design, including component selection, FEM simulation, mechanical integration and manufacturing support.

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our Hardware team researches, designs, and develops new technologies and hardware to make our user's interaction with computing faster, more powerful, and seamless. Whether finding new ways to capture and sense the world around us, advancing form factors, or improving interaction methods, our Hardware team is making people's lives better through technology.

Responsibilities
  • Design haptics transducers and related enclosures. Collaborate with vendors to optimize performance, mechanical features and testing, and characterize transducer performance.
  • Lead modeling and simulation of transducers using lumped sum and FEM tools (e.g. Comsol, Ansys, Abacus, etc). Present detailed data and design recommendations based on findings.
  • Drive vendors to create new customized transducers to meet specific performance requirements.
  • Evaluate new components and technologies, and maintain roadmap of new technologies and intersection points with products.
  • Represent the sensor team in meetings with cross-functional engineering teams.
Qualifications

Minimum qualifications:

  • Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Engineering, Materials Science, or a related field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • 5 years of experience with sensor solutions, focusing on productizing input systems.
  • Experience with finite element analysis (FEA)/finite element method (FEM) tools.

Preferred qualifications:

  • Experience in touch and/or force sensing and/or haptics system design.
  • Experience leading cross-functional teams.
  • Demonstrated background in Electrical and/or Mechanical Engineering, with proficiency in analog and vibratory systems.
  • Effective statistical analysis skills.
