About the job
Like Google's own ambitions, the work of a Software Engineer (SWE) goes way beyond just Search. SWE Managers have not only the technical expertise to take on and provide technical leadership to major projects, but also manage a team of engineers. You not only optimize your own code but make sure engineers are able to optimize theirs. As a SWE Manager you manage your project goals, contribute to product strategy and help develop your team. SWE teams work all across the company, in areas such as information retrieval, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking, security, data compression, user interface design; the list goes on and is growing every day. Operating with scale and speed, our exceptional software engineers are just getting started - and as a manager, you guide the way.
The Android Platform Graphics team gets pixels onto the screens of billions of devices on dozens of form factors, all at 120hz+, enabling users to have compelling polished applications and game visuals that are power-efficient. To make that happen, we are driving a large number of initiatives, ranging from transitioning the world to ever-better Vulkan-capable GPUs, to advancing the look and feel of Android applications, to improving through tooling and polish our developer-facing API surface.
