Google Electrical Engineer in Dublin, Ireland

Our thirst for technology is a part of everything we do. The Data Center Engineering team takes the physical design of our data centers into the future. Our lab mirrors a research and development department -- cutting-edge strategies are born, tested and tested again. Along with a team of great minds, you tackle complex topics like how we use power or how to run state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly facilities. You're a visionary who optimizes for efficiencies and never stops seeking improvements -- even small changes that can make a huge impact. You generate ideas, communicate recommendations to senior-level executives and drive implementation alongside facilities technicians.

With your technical expertise, you ensure compliance with codes and standards, develop infrastructure improvements and serve as an expert in your specialty (e.g. cooling, electrical, etc).

As a Data Center Electrical Engineer, you have demonstrated design, construction, equipment operation and maintenance experience in the area of complex and mission critical facilities. You'll have knowledge of large-scale data center electrical infrastructure systems, and you'll be involved in the development of complex electrical infrastructure - from site assessments and concept design, to construction projects and major modification of existing infrastructure. You will also provide and prepare all types of documents, including: statement of work (SOW), total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis, concept designs, drawing markups, budgets, schedules, factory test and acceptance documents, final startup/commissioning reports and review, and acceptance of as-builts and submittals.

Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio possible. We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We're always on call to keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
