Remote Job Description

At Google, our philosophy is build it, break it and then rebuild it better. That thinking is at the core of how we approach testing at Google. Unlike roles with similar names at the other companies, Test Engineers at Google aren't manual testers -- you write scripts to automate testing and create tools so developers can test their own code. As a Test Engineer, you navigate Google's massive codebase, identify weak spots and constantly design better and creative ways to break software and identify potential problems. You'll have a huge impact on the quality of Google's growing suite of products and services.

Google has always been about the democratization of information. We’re extending that ethos to the world of E-Commerce, supporting an open ecosystem of buyers and sellers across online and offline businesses. With over one billion shopping sessions happening per day on Google, we’re creating new innovative shopping and selling experiences that leverage Google’s Shopping Graph: a comprehensive, AI-enhanced model that understands products, sellers, brands, and reviews and how those attributes relate to one another and the product information and inventory data we receive from brands and retailers directly.

The US base salary range for this full-time position is $130,000-$201,000 + bonus + equity + benefits. Our salary ranges are determined by role, level, and location.
