As a UX Engineer, you will work closely with your product, engineering, and designer counterparts to iterate on new product ideas, producing mockups and prototypes to visualize what the experience could look like. You will help drive product and design thinking using code, technical demonstrations, and prototypes from ideation phase through to execution.

In Google Search, we're reimagining what it means to search for information – any way and anywhere. To do that, we need to solve complex engineering challenges and expand our infrastructure, while maintaining a universally accessible and useful experience that people around the world rely on. In joining the Search team, you'll have an opportunity to make an impact on billions of people globally.
