Passionate people are everywhere at Google. In Developer Relations, we are excited to collaborate and connect with the communities that love technology as much as we do. Part community manager and part developer advocate, Developer Programs Engineers collaborate with developers at conferences and online, and advocate for developers interests internally at Google. Not afraid to be hands-on, you write sample code and client libraries as well as participate in developer forums and support queues to troubleshoot and debug coding problems developers encounter.

Internally, you work with product engineering teams to improve our products by conveying feedback from developers, reviewing API designs, and testing new features. Chrome, Android, App Engine, HTML5, and our core G Suite and Ads APIs are just some of the platforms you promote and support.

As a Developer Programs Engineer (DPE), you stand at the intersection of a technology movement shaping our world - between the people who build it and the customers who use it. We ensure that Google Cloud and related open source projects like Kubernetes, Beam and TensorFlow are amazing for developers.

We provide feedback on API design, platform consistency and functionality. We release open source code, participate in developer forums and help troubleshoot developer problems.

In this role, you will work on our Data and Analytics products, analyzing large datasets using a broad range of technologies. You will produce great code that will pave the way for future developers and help provide guidance to our costumers. Additionally, you will be exposed to new concepts and encouraged to find innovative ways to teach those concepts to others.

Google is and always will be an engineering company. We hire people with a broad set of technical skills who are ready to take on some of technology's greatest challenges and make an impact on millions, if not billions, of users.

At Google, engineers not only revolutionize search, they routinely work on massive scalability and storage solutions, large-scale applications and entirely new platforms for developers around the world. From Google Ads to Chrome, Android to YouTube, Social to Local, Google engineers are changing the world one technological achievement after another.
